Lighting The Path To Improvement: Hope Is Not Strategy & Accountability Is Not Commitment

We all know improving schools and systems is hard. It is clear that high stakes accountability and the initiative swirl fail to lead to lasting improvement. We also know every teacher went into the profession wanting to make a difference.  Each child enters kindergarten wanting to succeed. Leaders accept the challenge to lead because they believe they can impact both positive change and organization culture.  How do we reshape our thinking about the work and provide light to those on the journey? The model for improvement linked with the principles of quality has moved the School District of Menomonee Falls beyond “the chase.”  The system is focused on building culture, problem solving effectively, and leveraging capacity for both the students and the staff.  The performance results are clear.  What is equally important is what we have learned about building individual capability, system capacity, and hope. We are building life chances for children and bridging new hope for our professionals.
