Whether or not your school uses a standards-based report card, grades should be based on student achievement and grading practices should support student motivation and learning. This institute will explore grading policies and practices that support these purposes.
How do we create a school environment that is ripe for instructional coaching, rich feedback practices, and effective teacher leadership?

A culture of reflective practice, as outlined by best-selling authors Pete Hall and Alisa Simeral in their new ASCD book Creating a Culture of Reflective Practice, consists of four essential fundamentals:
· Strong relationships and clear roles and responsibilities of the leaders
· Clearly communicated expectations
· Regular celebrations and calibration practices
· Aligned goal-setting and follow-through actions
