What is SAM?
“SAM is a professional development
process using a unique set of tools to
change a principal’s focus from
school management tasks to
instructional leadership—activities
directly connected to improving
teaching and learning.”

Goal
To help SAM teams use three
questions – What? So what? Now
what? – to be more reflective,
purposeful, and effective by
engaging in a reiterative process in
which they collect, analyze, and
use data to inform decisions.

What?
An integral part of the SAM
process to change a
principal’s focus from school
management tasks to
instructional leadership is to
collect data about how much
instructional, management,
and personal time a principal
uses.

What?
Merely doing
something and
collecting data is not an
effective and efficient
way to change a
principal’s focus from
school management
tasks to instructional
leadership.

15
So what?
Merely collecting data
does not help SAM teams
reach their goals “to
change a principal’s focus
from school management
tasks to instructional
leadership.” Therefore,
successful SAM teams
analyze data to make
meaning of their data.

So what?
Leading change to create high
performing, results driven organizations
•
•
A principal can be more effective by using his/her
TimeTrack data to inform decision making and determine
next steps with a teacher or group to focus on the team’s
goals
The SAM team must regularly consider and reflect on the
impact of the principal’s instructional leadership work using
TimeTrack data and charts
• Discuss the impact of the leader’s time on an individual
teacher’s practice
• Discuss the impact of the leader’s time on a group’s practice
• Discuss the impact of the leader’s time on a student or parent’s
practice

So what?
TimeTrack Review: Seven Questions
1. Is the team at/above goal?
2. Is the team scheduling at/above goal in advance?
3. Is the team connecting events with individual
teachers and groups?
4. Is a TimeTrack daily meeting scheduled every day?
5. Do you see evidence of follow-up scheduling?
6. Are events reconciled?
7. Is the principal/SAM scheduling the descriptors
they said they wanted to do more of?

do to increase your instructional time?
• What things could you have done/could you
do to increase your principal’s instructional
time?
• What are things that you might have
done/could do in the next month to find ways
to provide meaningful feedback to your

leadership.

22
Now what?
Merely collecting and analyzing data does not
help SAM teams reach their goals “to change
a principal’s focus from school management
tasks to instructional leadership.” Therefore,
successful SAM teams use the findings of
their data analysis to engage in reflective
practice and to inform their decisions;
thereby, continuing the reiterative process of
collecting, analyzing, and using data to
inform decisions.
