  2. 2. Purity <ul><li>Student Purity </li></ul><ul><li>The percentage of students in each SLC specific class who are actually in that community: </li></ul><ul><li>should be above 90% in grade 9 </li></ul><ul><li>should be above 80% in grades 10-12. </li></ul><ul><li>Teacher purity- </li></ul><ul><li>Teachers in each SLC should teach the majority of their courses within the SLC and have 3 hours per week of common planning time. </li></ul>2009 Institute for Staff Development Students Today, Leaders Tomorrow

  18. 18. Process 2009 Institute for Staff Development Students Today, Leaders Tomorrow The BIG shifts:
  19. 19. Its All in the Process 2009 Institute for Staff Development Students Today, Leaders Tomorrow A transparent process in which a clear vision of each Career Academy is defined, cohorts are scheduled as separate schools (course tags created for each academy), “ branding” is built in student sign up visuals, and academy purity is protected throughout the process.
  20. 20. A typical example... 2009 Institute for Staff Development Students Today, Leaders Tomorrow <ul><ul><li>A school has 2200 students – </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>5 Career Academies </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>3 sections of AP English and History traditional enrollment </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>4 sections of Honors Geometry </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>2 ELL teachers </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>3 teachers who have traditionally taught all of Honors/AP </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>A traditional process to place teachers based upon what they want to teach or who has traditionally taught the advanced classes and what period they want off for prep. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Does the “cumulative advantage” exist here?... is it pre-decided who will “make it”? </li></ul></ul>
