<p>Career and College Readiness</p> <p>Career and College ReadinessIts OUR Job.</p> <p>Leadership Academy 2013Dale EllisMoving towards High ExpectationsHigh expectations are the key to everything. - Sam Walton</p> <p>Why do you think this is true?And then.I dont have high expectations anymore. Maybe theyve just been beaten out of me. -Actress Elisabeth Shue</p> <p>Why do you think this is true? How does that happen?What it Means to UsWithout an education, where can our kids go?With only a high school education, where can they go?Why is college important?Why is career ready equally as important?</p> <p>We ALL own K-12 education for OUR studentsWe ALL own OUR achievement gapsWe ALL own poor performance in OUR ____ gradeWe ALL own poor performance on OUR ACT scores</p> <p>Do your faculties truly believe these statements?</p> <p>A 10,000 Foot View of Our SchoolsWe have bless your heart schools.That is not necessarily a bad thing. It shows compassion.Its ok to pat our kids on the back, but lets push them while our hand is back there too!We dont want to love them into stupidity and mediocrity.</p> <p>Our ModelWhats working?Whats not?</p> <p>Are IFs involved and active in classrooms?Are IFs providing district and school mandated staff development?Are we doing CWTs consistently and using data to improve instruction?Are we carrying out the model with high fidelity?</p> <p>Or, are parts of it failing because we have low expectations for staff and students?</p> <p>The Victim MentalityEducators have a victim mentality, especially right now.I agree that this feeling is not totally misplaced.But, we can not make victims of our children because of what is happening in Raleigh.We can not make victims of our children because WE dont think they can do the work to be exceptional.The adults are victimizing kids when we set low expectations! Apple Advantage Disruptive Innovation"Innovation has nothing to do with how many R&amp;D dollars you have. When Apple came up with the Mac, IBM was spending at least 100 times more on R&amp;D. It's not about money. It's about the people you have, how you're led, and how much you get it. Steve Jobs</p> <p>Can your people do the work that is needed?Can you lead them in accomplishing this work?Do they get it?Apple - Continued"My job is not to be easy on people. My job is to make them better. Steve Jobs</p> <p>A real-world high expectations example.No More Status QuoHappy Students </p> <p>From that, to thisWhat happens to kids from kindergarten to that time they start not liking school?</p> <p>We do.</p> <p>The Change We NeedThe change we need starts with setting high expectations. It starts with all of us being engaged and serious about this process.</p> <p> Im sure glad the hole isnt in our end.</p> <p>The Problem with Market LeadersMarket leaders are the last to transform.They do not keep up, pay attention, and realize there is a problem until it is often too late.</p> <p>The secret of change is to focus all of your energy, not on fighting the old, but on building the new. - Socrates</p> <p>Rita PiersonPart of You Video</p> <p>You say it long enough, it starts to be a part of you. </p> <p>SummaryLets build those relationships and set high expectations for ALL students.Lets do the work with high fidelity so THEY can accomplish amazing results.Growth is great, but we are better than below the state average!Every kid deserves a champion!</p> <p>Questions, comments, concerns?</p>
