To gauge the level of implementation of data teams and PLCs on a given territory.
To identify current and future needs with regards to implementations of data teams.
To determine future actions of existing data teams with school principals.
To develop a common definition of level of implementation of PLCs or data teams.
A three-part activity over two and a half hours that: Creates a visual representation of schools with PLC/Data teams and describe the level of development for each; Maps all the actions needed to be taken to meet the goal of one data team per school; and Identifies one school principal to determine the support they need to help the school’s PLC/Data Team move forward.
