  • There is a power point note-taking sheet in your folder. The Overview of the 7 Keys to College Readiness is the first of two discussions about the MCPS 7 Keys to College Readiness and how to help all students in MCPS succeed along this pathway. It is important that all MCPS staff understand how to use this trajectory to ensure that all students leave Montgomery County Public Schools ready for college and careers and in a way that ensures the students who are or aren’t on the trajectory toward college readiness at any given moment are not predictable by race.. If you have already used the trajectory with staff, let them know this is an upgraded version of the one they have seen and validate ways in which they have already used the trajectory to plan for student success. Provide your staff with a copy of the Performance Update as appropriate. The intention of reviewing the college-ready trajectory with all staff is to clarify changes and deepen your understanding of the full scope of the trajectory in order to begin or continue the conversations that need to be occurring not only in our own school; but also among and between schools that serve the same students. Our hope is that every MCPS employee will have an understanding of what this trajectory means for the future of our students and how it should inform their work. As we move into our school improvement planning process for next year, we will examine the data related to the performance targets specific to our students to make sure we are doing everything possible to get or keep all of our students on this trajectory.

    2. 2. Session Outcomes By the end of the session, participants will be able to: <ul><li>Define the importance of college readiness for the future of our students, system, and nation. </li></ul><ul><li>Explain the 7 keys to college readiness as a diagnostic tool related to student achievement. </li></ul><ul><li>Explain the rationale behind the levels of performance selected for the college readiness trajectory. </li></ul><ul><li>Differentiate between levels of performance for system targets and the 7 keys to college readiness. </li></ul><ul><li>Use the college ready-trajectory to ensure achievement is not predictable by race. </li></ul>
    3. 3. <ul><li>Imagine a consensogram line. Pick a number between 1-10 on that continuum to represent your current understanding of the relationship between the MCPS Performance Targets and the 7 Keys for College Readiness . </li></ul><ul><li>Talk at your tables for three minutes about why you selected that number and what you know about the relationship. </li></ul> Table Talk

    5. 5. What is the Relationship Between the 7 Keys and MCPS Performance Targets? MCPS Performance Targets 7 Keys for College Readiness <ul><ul><li>Raise expectations and standards so that student and school performance will not be predictable by race/ethnicity </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Reflect accountability mandates </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Include both on- and above- grade level expectations (proficient and advanced) </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Even more rigorous because we know performance targets that put students on track for high school graduation may not be rigorous enough to place them on the trajectory for college and career success </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Serve as a resource to monitor college and work readiness and help determine interventions </li></ul></ul>
