    1. 1. May 15, 2009
    2. 2. Six Topics To Get Started… <ul><li>Recap: Our Progress </li></ul><ul><li>Teaching And Learning </li></ul><ul><li>Leading </li></ul><ul><li>Extending Opportunities </li></ul><ul><li>New Schools </li></ul><ul><li>IMSA & CPS </li></ul>
    3. 4. ISAT composite scores have increased steadily since 2001
    4. 5. ISAT composite scores show CPS is closing the gap with the state…
    5. 6. … yet achievement gaps by race and gender persist.
    6. 7. High school PSAE scores are largely flat…
    7. 8. … and the percent of students scoring 20+ on ACT is essentially flat as well
    8. 9. Progress has been in moving students from the bottom quartiles to the middle *Different norms (ITBS88 to ITBS01) **Different test (from ISAT to SAT 10) Percent of schools with 50% or more of students at or above 50 th percentile 1990 1995 2001 2005* 2008** 8% 12% 21% or 24% 31% 72%
    9. 11. High Quality Materials Research and Evaluation Timely Assessment Data In-School Supports Teacher Capacity Instructional Excellence Research and Evaluation Research and Evaluation
    10. 13. Lesson Quality is Associated with Adherence to District-Designated Materials Adherence 39 Iris Weiss
    11. 14. At the K-5 level, schools using district instructional materials show significant, medium to high effect size gains. Math Trailblazers Everyday Mathematics +4.0 +9.0 +9.1 +4.9 +6.2 +7.2 +6.7 0 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 0 years 226 schools 1 year 74 schools 2 years 80 schools 3 years 34 schools 1 year 18 schools 2 years 37 schools 3 years 26 schools ISAT Scaled Score Gain
    12. 15. Three Questions <ul><li>Is the strategy robust? </li></ul><ul><li>Is the strategy broad? </li></ul><ul><li>Is the strategy well implemented? </li></ul>
    13. 16. Is the strategy robust? Red : no strategy, inadequate strategy Yellow : pilot, experimental, hard-to-scale, incomplete, little evaluation data Green : robust, evaluation data support
    14. 17. Mathematics K-12 Strategy Alignment Red : no strategy, inadequate strategy Yellow : pilot, experimental, hard-to-scale, incomplete, little evaluation data Green : robust, evaluation data support
    15. 18. Science K-12 Strategy Alignment Red : no strategy, inadequate strategy Yellow : pilot, experimental, hard-to-scale, incomplete, little evaluation data Green : robust, evaluation data support
    16. 20. “ Despite forceful calls from business leaders and policymakers to upgrade math and science education, most superintendents (59%) and principals (66%) say this is not a serious problem in their local schools.”
    17. 21. Knowledge/Advice Networks Language Arts Network Mathematics Network Jim Spillane teachers specialists principal/assistant principal teacher leaders
    18. 22. Mathematics and Science Leadership Development Efforts <ul><li>Instructional Rounds in Education- model of examining instructional practice; focusing on developing shared understanding of high quality teaching and learning. </li></ul><ul><li>Instructional Leadership Teams- building a collaborative, results oriented learning culture </li></ul><ul><li>Lenses on Learning- Instructional supervision and leadership in mathematics. </li></ul><ul><li>High School Department Chair capacity building </li></ul><ul><li>Professional Development Leader capacity building for K-8 instructional materials </li></ul>
    19. 25. Extended Learning Opportunities for mathematics and science. <ul><li>You Be the Chemist , 34 chemistry clubs, grades 5-8 </li></ul><ul><li>Space Explorers , 10 space clubs, grades 6-8 </li></ul><ul><li>Geo Explorers , 10 geology clubs, grades 4-5 </li></ul><ul><li>Future City , 17 school teams, grades 6-8 </li></ul><ul><li>Tabula Digita , 10 math clubs, grades 4-8 </li></ul><ul><li>CPS Student Science Fair , grades 6-12 </li></ul><ul><li>FIRST Robotics , grades 9-12 </li></ul><ul><li>Chicago Mathematics League , grades 9-12 </li></ul>
    20. 27. New STEM-focused Schools 5 new technology magnet cluster schools, fall 2008 1 engineering school (Miles Davis, K-8), fall 2008 DeVry Advantage Academy, grades 11-12 Lindblom HS UIC College Prep HS Rowe-Clark HS
