How to get to Student Outcome Goals
Student outcome goals are a methodology, not something with which you merely comply.
So what does this bill mean for you, as a Texas School District? There are three big asks.
- Create three Student Outcome Goals, including a child literacy goal. To work, these goals will need hard numbers. You should use SMART goal format: get current result X to new result Y by date Z.
- Monitor those goals according to milestones. Ideally you want automatic graphs and an easy way to attach evidence over time.
- Report progress. The format should minimize rework and burdens on staff. There's a format already being used by many Texas ISDs for this exact reporting.
Here's How to Do It
We want to get you on track to compliance, which ultimately means students benefit too.
We have three team members at NXTBoard that are experts at leading this exact policy implementation at Texas schools: a former superintendent, former principal, and a policy governance expert who is also a school board member.
