As a system, before talking about what NEPF
is and the challenges we will face
implementing it, perhaps we should explain
why…
Why is there an attempt to create such a high
stakes evaluation system?
NNRPDP, Hansen

"Human capital is perhaps the single most
important long-term driver of an economy,"
"Smarter workers are more productive and
innovative. It is an economist's rule that an
increase of one year in a country's average
schooling level corresponds to an increase of 3 to
4 percent in long-term economic growth. Most of
the value added in the modern global economy is
now knowledge based."
-Rebecca Strauss, associate director for CFR's Renewing America publications.

“By adopting the CCSS, Nevada launched one
of its most comprehensive school
improvement and economic development
efforts ever.”
“The standards will also strengthen the state’s
workforce and economy as more students
graduate from high school with the
knowledge, skills and ability needed to
succeed in a new economy…”
-Dale Erquiaga,
Nevada Superintendant
of Public Instruction

In the 21st century, because of the rapid

“Culture trumps
Strategy any day.”
–Ray McNulty
Innovation or Transformative
Change will not take place in a
toxic culture
Culture is the foundation
upon which we build
strategies and structures.
NNRPDP, Hansen
Two of the keys to successfully implementing
organizational change are:


A positive Culture characterized with high
levels of organizational trust
High capacity of Instructional Leadership
NNRPDP, Hansen
School level leaders have to simultaneously
become:
Instructional Leaders and Change
Agents!
Instructional
Leader
They must be able to lead the following:
 Building positive cultures of trust
 Adopting and Implementing new Standards
◦ Unwrap standards
◦ Identify Essential Learning
◦ Build Assessments

Observation and Evaluation

Leadership isn’t exclusive to Principals!!!
◦ Coaching and mentoring teachers
NNRPDP, Hansen
They will have to
be able to walk
the a walk not
just talk the talk.
“Clarity precedes competence”
-Rebecca DuFour
“Clarify expectations in order to liberate hope.”
-Steve Constantino
If cultures are struggling or an initiative struggles to gain traction,
lack of clarity in regards to expectations is a good culprit to look
for.
So… What are the expectations?

In regards to NEPF, how can we support the:

In every group where a challenge exists a
leader will emerge.
The leader is usually the one that can frame
the problem without placing blame.
