Norms
• Keep students at the center of focus and decision-making
• Be present and engaged – limit distractions, if urgent matters come up,
step outside
• Monitor air time and share your voice - you’ll know which applies to you!
• Challenge with respect – disagreement can be healthy, respect all
intentions
• Be solutions oriented – for the good of the group, look for the possible
• Risk productive struggle - this is safe space to get out of your comfort
zone
• Balance urgency and patience - we need to see dramatic change and
change will happen over time
• Start and end on time – maximize group learning by honoring session and
break start and end times
• Any other norms desired to facilitate your learning?

Core Beliefs
Earning a living wage has never
demanded more skills. This
generation must learn more than
its parents to do as well.
All children are capable of
learning and thinking at a high
level. Children in Tennessee are as
talented as any in the country and
often capable of more than we
expect.
Our current education results
pose a real threat to state and
national competitiveness and
security. Improving the skills of
our children is vital for the future
of Tennessee and America.
Tennessee is on a mission to
become the fastest improving
state in the nation. Doing so will
require hard work and significant
learning for all. We must learn to
teach in ways we were not taught
ourselves.
There is no recipe that will deliver
a successful transition. Preparing
for Common Core will demand
effective leadership focused on
student growth.
PARCC is coming in two years. We
need to use the transition wisely
to make sure our students and
our state are ready.
