    A5- That's a good question. Being in a new building, I'm not quite sure how success is measured. We tend to give out student and family "culture and climate" surveys. For me I think of success in terms of academics, culture, involving behavior, attendance, etc. #leadlap

    5) We don’t wait until the end of the year. When I hire teachers I ask, “ At the end of the day, how do you know if it has been a good day or a bad day?” Their ability to reflect and find moments of success in every moment is essential. #leadlap

    A5. Of course we take a look at test scores - that’s the nature of our current education climate; however, I also really enjoy talking about the growth we’ve seen in our kids. We award them for things like citizenship, art, positivity, community service hours, etc. #LeadLAP

  • SteinbrinkLaura Feb 24 @ 11:07 AM EST
    A5: Do Ts feel energized & excited about what happened during the dash between the 2017 and 2018? Do Ss want to come to school? Have we spread the positives? Have we made the positives so loud that the negatives are now impossible to hear? -@gcouros #LeadLAP
  • msneil2009 Feb 24 @ 11:07 AM EST
    A5: Success is usually measured by test scores. In Texas, we have seven standards of measurement that indicate success. My favorite one is the growth. It’s not fair to say that each student should hit a particular mark, but it is reasonable that every student should grow #leadlap
