The Urban Excellence Framework The Urban Excellence Framework™ is New Leaders for New Schools' strong stance on the most effective principal actions and school practices for driving the kind of dramatic change in urban public schools that will be necessary to ensure that every student is prepared for success in college, a career, and citizenship.! ! New Leaders is rooted in the unwavering belief that this goal is both necessary and possible through strong school leadership. We have come to understand that one of a principal's primary jobs is to diagnose their school's needs and match them to effective strategies that drive student success. The UEF™ reflects our best understanding of what that match looks like in our highest- gaining schools.

School Diagostic Rubric Diagnostic Overview: The learnings in the Urban Excellence Framework (UEF) are divided into five major categories that are central to school improvement. Underneath each category we find a subset of key levers that leaders push to guide improvement within their schools. Key levers include multiple concepts, which highlight more granular areas of focus within the lever. The UEF describes how principal actions and school practices evolve and build across three stages of development. These observable school practices/structures serve as the foundation of the School Diagnostic tool. ! ! The School Diagnostic is an assessment tool that helps to guide a principal’s work by assessing the school on critically important levers in the UEF. This assessment includes a strong diagnosis of school practices within each lever and is designed to reveal strengths and inconsistencies. This diagnosis is essential to an effective goal-setting and strategic planning process, which ultimately leads to school improvement measured by increased student achievement and stakeholder satisfaction.!

Session attendance and assessment completion information will be tracked electronically into city specific forms. One-on-one coaching support will be captured with each Learning Meeting by conceptualizing sessions in terms of ‘coaching treatment units’. One treatment unit consists of a feedback session in keeping with the above definition that is less than 2 hours. There will be a field to capture this information within the Qualtrics link for each Resident’s Learning Meeting reviews. APP Directors will be prompted to indicate the number of one-on-one coaching treatment units that were held since the last Learning Meeting (or, in the case of the first Learning Meeting, since the beginning of the Residency Year). Residents are required to attend all scheduled virtual webinars.
  • 34. Resident Minimum Requirements: APPD Guidance What? Similar to last year’s Performance Meetings, Residents are required to track Resident Minimum Requirements and are asked to submit this information four times during the Residency year. Session attendance and assessment completion information will be tracked electronically into city specific forms. Why? This information is collected for a variety of reasons, including Endorsement Decisions, Resident accountability, Program Evaluation, and Funder Reporting. The responses that Residents enter into the electronic form are then reviewed by the APPD for accuracy once at the end of 2014 Summer Foundations and during each Learning Meeting. How? Links to the electronic forms will be available to Residents on Canvas in respective Learning Meeting sections in advance of each meeting. The form will list each in-person and virtual session and assignment that took place during the specific time period with a drop down menu. Residents will select one of the following options based on their attendance / assessment completion. These responses will be collected into a single Google Spreadsheet for each city. Links to these spreadsheets are at the bottom of this document. In-Person and Virtual Session! The list of options for each in-person or virtual session will include the following: • Attended - attended the entire session • Made up session - missed the session bout attended approved make-up session • Missed - Did not attend the session or make-up the session • N/A - not applicable • no in-person session in that week • for APP Intensive attendees only Assignments! The list of options for each assignment will include the following: • Complete • Incomplete Residents will be responsible for filling in this information online, via Google Form, before each Learning Meeting and once following the end of Summer Foundations. Residents will be provided with a document that lists each session and assignment to assist them with their tracking. Tracking Time Period Tracker Due from Residents Local Induction to end of Summer Foundations August 8th Summer Foundations to Learning Meeting 1 Before Learning Meeting #1 (specific dates are city driven) Learning Meeting 1 to Learning Meeting 2 Before Learning Meeting #2 (specific dates are city driven) Learning Meeting 2 to Learning Meeting 3 Before Learning Meeting #3 (specific dates are city driven)
