ILT Development

ILT Development
Today’s Outcomes: ILT Development
Self-assess the ILT’s effectiveness in
performing critical work and functions
Determine 1-2 areas for team
improvement and the means and measures
by which to implement these improvements
The Big Picture: How is the Work of the ILT
Connected to CPS Initiatives?
ILTs systematically use data and the CCSS to set goals, create a Theory of
Action and Quarterly Action Plan, and monitor progress to ensure students
are achieving measureable results.
• Sets school goals
• Identifies strategic levers
• Describes intended impact
on instructional core
• Identifies metrics to
monitor progress
Theory of
The “How”
The “Who”
The “What”
• Develops school plan
for instructional
• Learns through the
analysis of data
• Supports teacher
• Facilitates two-way
• Engages in regular
reflection on team itself
• Articulates an aligned, district-wide
vision for student achievement
• Aligns with CPS college- and career-ready outcomes
• Is the mechanism for developing high-quality curriculum, instruction, and assessment
Video: ILT Conditions for Success
As you’re observing a short video of
McClellan Elementary School’s ILT,
•What effective practices does McClellan appear to have in
place? Which of these practices might be helpful for our own
ILT to utilize or improve upon?
Self-Assessment for
ILT Improvement
Step 1: Reflect Upon ILT Effectiveness
Step 2: Set Goals to Improve
ILT Effectiveness
Step 1:
What is the critical work that the ILT must lead and do
that will lead to improved student outcomes?
Are the following criteria strengths or weaknesses of our team? How do we know?
Critical Work of the ILT:
Develops the school’s plan for instructional improvement and monitors
progress on the plan
Learns through the analysis of data about what is and isn’t working
and makes adjustments to school-wide improvement strategies
Supports and builds capacity of teacher teams
Facilitates two-way communication between the ILT and engages all
staff in participating in decision-making that advances the school’s
strategic focus
Engages in regular reflection upon its own team processes and
effectiveness and takes actions to improve its functioning
Step 1:
What are the ways in which the ILT functions that
supports effectively executing on the critical work?
Are the following criteria strengths or weaknesses of our team? How do we know?
Conditions for Success for the ILT:
Has a clear understanding of the team’s purpose and priorities
Meets regularly and frequently (at least twice a month)
Assigns clear roles and responsibilities to its members (permanently
or on a rotating basis)
Knows and follow norms
Creates an agenda with clear objectives for each meeting
Informs decision making with data and clear evidence
Ends meetings with next steps (action items) that have clear owners
and due dates
Has a systematic way to track action items and consistently monitors
both their implementation and success
Step 2:
Commit to Strategies for Success
Based on your team’s identified areas
for improvement, use the handout to
plan 1-3 strategies our team can
commit to in order to achieve our ILT
How will we monitor execution and
effectiveness of these strategies?
Reflecting on the Process
 What
did you like about the way this ILT session
was conducted?
 What challenges surfaced? What changes to
our meeting process might the team want to
make for future meetings?
 To what extent did this session reflect the
strengths and challenges of our ILT that we
identified earlier? What steps can we take to
improve on or address these areas?
