DR. HOWIE KNOFF'S CONGRESS SPEECH 1
SEVEN EVIDENCE-BASED STRATEGIES TO SYSTEMIC SUCCESS IN SCHOOLS
CONGRESS | 17 APR 2019
This presentation will describe an evidence-based school improvement blueprint and process that has been implemented in thousands of schools over the past 35+ years. It is organized around the “Seven Sure Solutions to Systemic Success.”
Each of the Seven Sure Solutions has a series of BIG IDEAs that guide the conceptual and pragmatic approach to services for all students, staff, and schools.
In total, the Seven Sure Solutions focus on:
Solution 1—Strategic Planning and Organizational Development
Solution 2—Community and Family Involvement and Outreach
Solution 3—Staff Cohesion, Consultation, Shared Leadership, and Teaming
Solution 4—Professional Development, Supervision, Coaching, and Accountability
Solution 5—Positive Academic Supports and Services (Effective Academic Curriculum, Instruction and Multi-Tiered Interventions)
Solution 6—Positive Behavioral Support Systems (Effective School Discipline, Classroom Management, Student Self-Management, and Multi-Tiered Interventions for Behaviorally Challenging Students)
Solution 7—Multi-tiered Services, Supports, Strategies, and Interventions
The characteristics and content within each of these Seven Solutions will be described in detail, from needs assessment, resource development, strategic planning, and implementation and evaluation perspectives. With a focus on student outcomes, the discussion will include staff, schools, and implementation fidelity outcomes, and how the Solutions have been adapted for different school and community nuances.
Case examples will be liberally shared, and audience participation will be encouraged.
