In the table below is a detailed timeline for the development of the Implementation Plan to support the Washington Central Student Learning Outcomes. To the right of each step is a link to the documents that are examples of our work. This table is outlined in alignment of Curtis and City's Strategy in Action and the chapter and page numbers reference their book.
1) Understanding the current work (Chapter 1) Brainstorm current initiatives p. 26 Initiative Mapping Summary Chart - A relative list of initiatives as of June 2016 that were assessed based on the signs of a strategy rubric and then a weighting factor was applied based on the number of grade levels it would affect. Note the numbers are just a way to rank the initiatives across the system. Grade Initiatives p. 30 Sort into Areas p. 29 Signs of Success p. 40 Signs of Strategy Rubric - This a rubric to determine if the strategy either is or as the potential to have the greatest affect on student learning. It is taken from Curtis and City's book, Strategy in Action, page 3, Harvard Press, 2012
