• Monthly ILT tool release

    All principals | Deadline: ongoing

    Schools can now access their Instructional Leadership Team (ILT) tool for November on Principal's Dashboard. ILT tools are found under the ILT tab, below “Student Information” on the main screen. ILT tools will no longer be emailed to principals by their executive directors.

    The ILT tool captures schools' assessment and other key data, including indicators of climate and of students at risk. It is designed to assist ILTs in gauging individual student progress toward college and career-ready goals so that appropriate targeted action can be taken. The November release updates indicators related to climate and, for high school, SAT and HSA results and graduation.

    To share feedback on the ILT tool, please complete the brief ILT Tool feedback survey; comments on format or content of the tool can also be sent by email.

    In preparation for Principal Learning Sessions in 2015, ILT tools will be released on these dates:

    • January 6
    • February 5
    • March 10
    • April 14
    • May 5
    • June 9
    • June 22

    Please note that ILT tools include data from a particular point in time. Schools can view their most recent district assessment data via Data Link's preformatted reports as soon as they begin administering assessments. Please use both the ILT tool and Data Link reports during ILT and teacher team meetings.

    For additional information on which assessments are reported in the ILT tool, please refer to Assessments for SY2014-15. For questions on the ILT tool, please contact your executive director.
