Working Systemically

Working Systemically addresses five competencies required for implementing improvement at all levels of a school system: (1) collecting, analyzing, and interpreting data; (2) creating coherence; (3) ensuring continuous professional learning; (4) building relationships; and (5) responding to changing conditions. These competencies systemically address all components of an educational system: curriculum, instruction, assessment, standards, professional learning, resources, professional staff, family and community, and policy and governance.
