On Track for Improvement: A Small District’s Big Commitment
Ed Partners had the honor of co-presenting with On Track Collaboration member Hilmar Unified at the CSBA Annual conference last week. The focus of the session was Hilmar’s journey using continuous improvement tools, processes, and structures to “rewire“ the system with the goal of achieving improved results for their students. The Hilmar team described their efforts to improve achievement for 8th & 9th grade students through a series of interventions and more equitable grading practices. This work kept students “on track“ for A-G graduation with a particular focus on socioeconomically disadvantaged students and Latinx students.
Starting Strong: Building Capacity & Coherence Pre-K to 3rd Grade
On Thursday, December 1st at CSBA we had the opportunity to co-present with Monterey Peninsula USD. Their session focused on the effort to build an academic and structural bridge between their preschool and kindergarten-3rd grade programs using the Preschool Through Third Grade Coherence Collaboration (P3CC). Specifically, MPUSD employed cross-functional district teams to build capacity and leverage resources focused on creating instructional coherence across Pre-K through 3rd-grade transitions with the greatest benefits to English Learners and socio-economically disadvantaged students.
