NCOSP District Action Planning Protocol

Description: This data-driven planning process allows teachers and administrators to align their education reform activities with real, verifiable problems that they have the potential to influence.

The goals of the process are to use data to inform decisions and monitor improvements, to increase cross grade-level collaboration, and to strengthen collaboration among teachers and administrators.

Purpose: This presentation is designed to help facilitators explain and lead their school in a data-driven plan working toward continuous improvements in science teaching and learning.
