Next Generation School Improvement Grant

Strategic Planning

The Five Star team will help schools set up an Education Transformation Team (ETT) to create a strategic plan to address your intervention priorities through monthly strategy sessions designed for educational leaders. An experienced Five Star expert will work with your ETT to create a customized growth plan that incorporates identified grant requirements and specific job-embedded opportunities with practical outcomes. Together, we will establish the vision, learning targets and goals that can be used to identify beneficial transformational learning and technology resources. 

Throughout the strategy sessions, the ETT team will build a robust and well documented plan for future phases of the grant that include consistently awesome, evidence-based learning opportunities for all stakeholders that are relevant and engaging based on suggested school topics and goals.

Interactive Data 

Discuss authentic opportunities for improvement and change based on real-time data decisions.  With the Five Star IMPACT Analysis process, the ETT will gain insight that help measure the effect of your digital learning and instruction. The purpose of the Integration Mastery and Proficiencies Across the Curriculum with Technology (IMPACT) Analysis Report is to assist the leadership team in creating an actionable intervention plan with identified goals, metrics, and supports. Using this report, leaders will design ways to ensure sustainability, establish norms and culture, build leadership capacity, shift the pedagogical culture, and transform learning.   

Five Star Data Analytics will create shareable visualizations of student learning, digital skills, and pedagogical approaches to enable school leaders to make better decisions and guide action.
