Sept.- Intro to SLO and Collecting Baseline Data

Professional Learning

Oct.- Write SLO

  1. Provide time to collaboratively write the SLO using the guiding questions. Utilize instructional coaches and principals to support the high impact strategies to write in the plan.
  2. Hudson has set up a Data Day in the Calendar Oct. 17-18 to support the SLO Process. We also schedule 1-2 of our PLC to create a strong SLO. The Leadership team supports the process.

Nov.- Approve SLO

  1. Choose 2-3 days to approve SLO- Plan 30 minutes/ teacher or teacher team with the same goal
  2. Give teachers the 1st conference plan so they can prepare. Ask for them to turn in SLO prior so you can look it over and brainstorm ways to improve or support it.
  3. With teachers, highlight the criteria on the approval rubric that the SLO addresses. Discuss ways to improve on areas that are not highlighted.


Dec.- Support Strategies and Collect Evidence

  1. Instructional Coaching, PLC discussions, and Principal Feedback. Here is the form we utilize to set a coaching goal and we recommend that it is aligned with the SLO.

Jan. - Midyear Conference/ Adjust Goal and strategies and support if needed


  1. Choose 2-3 days to for midyear SLO conference- Plan 30 minutes/ teacher
  2. Give teachers the midyear plan so they can prepare.
  3. Ask for them to turn in their SLO, current data, and reflection prior so you can look it over and brainstorm ways to improve or support it.
  4. With teachers, discuss the current data, impact of strategies, and any adjustments to SLO or actions. Part of the midyear reflection discusses a data talk.http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BpjY1po3yTg
    Here is the form I use for data talks 3 times a year. It helps teachers reflect on student growth, celebrate, and discuss next steps for students they have concerns with. This form is directed at reading, but you can adjust it for any content area.

Support Administrators
1. Administrators will collaboratively approve, give feedback, and score SLO's to gain consistency of expectations within our district. We will use actual teacher examples. Here are samples from DPI.
2. We will gain feedback on the process with our district level Educator Effectiveness Team.
3. Free up time so principals can spend more time working collaboratively with teachers and supporting them in the classroom. This can be done by delegating managerial tasks to administrative assistant and the district office. We utilize Breakthrough Coaching strategies to help with this. Other ideas may be to provide support such as a behavioral specialist or a principal sub during these SLO meetings.
4. Professional Development in the areas of assessment, high impact strategies, and having reflective conversations.
