  • Debbie Fischer, has 36 years teaching experience and 11 years in the NAF network as an academy director. The Northeast High School Academy of Finance has been recognized in her district as a Center of Excellence, a model program for the National Career Academy Coalition and is one of our Distinguished academies for the past three years. Students who complete the AOF program leave with certifications, real world experiences, job shadowing each grade level, paid internships, student and business mentors, scholarship opportunities, field trips, integrated curriculum, and college and career plans. Approximately 96% of AOF students continue their education after high school.

    Being a member of the National Academy Foundation has provided a network of individuals and programs to share common experiences. Working with individuals who share their own experiences and needs leads to better results not only for our students, but also for the individuals involved.

    As you involve individuals from the business community through classroom instruction, mentoring, advisory boards, providing financial support, or paid internships, you will see that the use of data will be extremely important. Using data to improve instruction and hence to improve student outcomes will be essential in maintaining your program. 5 minutes
  • Feel free to select another photo. A bit about yourself and your academies a story for these new academies about why a schedule for data collection is important good advice to new academies
    5 minutes
  • It takes time to obtain data. Communicating, documenting, and comparing will be part of your daily tasks.
  • Director obtains input from members of Advisory Board, teachers, parents, students, administration, guidance, and district supervisor.

    Teacher obtains information from graduating seniors in May prior to graduation.

    Director sets up a meeting off campus with a business partner to develop 5 year Strategic Plan and inputs data on internships placed in the summer. Advisory Board reviews results from NAF review. During a day long workshop, Advisory Board reviews results and determines areas for improvement into their new Strategic Plan for the next 5 years. Members of the team were assigned various parts of the plan. As they shared their strategies, we reviewed the NAF results, Model School Criteria and Center of Excellence criteria to make sure we were still meeting all the elements.


    In the fall additional school and academy data is obtain and put into the NAF data system.

    Board Results are shared with Advisory Board team. This summer our Advisory Board had a day long workshop to create our new Strategic Plan for the next 5 years. Members of the team were assigned various parts of the plan. As they shared their strategies, we reviewed the NAF results, Model School Criteria and Center of Excellence criteria to make sure we were still meeting all the elements.
  • Director initiates the types of data that must be obtained
    Reaches out to appropriate sources
    Involves the Advisory Board throughout the year through reports and updates
    Board provides input and understands the process
    Keeps communication open with principal, guidance and district staff

  • Obtaining data is sometimes a very difficult task. Some of the types of data you will collect include:
  • You got this down, I would like you to discuss s action planning also

    9. 9. Imagine an afternoon when a teacher can sit down at a computer desktop and quickly sort through reams of data she’ll use to plan lessons for the next day…. She’ll compare every student’s achievement against state standards to decide which students need review and which ones are ready to move on…. That technological capability can only be found in the rare classroom today, but some experts say that such a data- rich approach to instruction will soon be common place (Hoff, 2006, p. 12). Are We There Yet?
