  • KPI Data and Guidance Sources of Data  Naviance reports  Surveys  SIS  National Student Clearinghouse Guidance  College Readiness Index System (Annenberg Institute for School Reform)  School Districts Scorecards (Montgomery Co, Anoka, Gwinnet Co, Fulton Co, etc.)  Council of Great City Schools 16

  • KPI PrioritizationForm a team with 3-5 people. Review the hand-out ofKPIs. For each of the 5 areas below, identify 3-5 KPIs thatyour team believes are most important (i.e. “key”) tomonitoring or predicting college and career readiness.Justify why your team’s selections are most important.Share with whole group.  Student growth and proficiency  College planning  Career planning  Student engagement  Alumni performance 22
  • KPIs and Promising PracticesFor those KPIs which we all find to be “key”, how mightwe benefit from sharing our results?[IMPORTANT: What is “key” for some schools/district may not be for others – checkyour school/district strategic plan]How could we share promising practices associated withdramatic KPI improvement?Are there barriers to sharing KPI performance andpromising practices across schools/districts?Could we develop more robust CCR KPIs? 23
  • Suggestions: KPIs Must Live• Build a college and career readiness “scorecard” (set of KPIs) for your school/district – But don’t do it alone• Consider performance targets for each KPI – Determine reasonability through (internal and external)benchmarking• Consider who and what drives/influences each KPI• Manage to the KPIs – If KPIs are “key”, then they ought to impact change• Share scorecard results with all (those who impact and those who are impacted by) 24
  • Suggestions: KPIs Must LiveManaging to KPIs is similar to great teaching: 25
  • Questions and Observations What did you not learn that you wish you had? How could Hobsons K12 provide you with support with regard to college and career readiness KPIs? 26
