 School Improvement Plan (SIP) for eto high schools

CTE Goal: 70% of CTE students attempting an industry certification will achieve a passing score (in CTE program areas of Business Technology Education, Information Technology (IT), Health Science and Culinary), and complete any other certification requirements such as work experience hours, etc.

Strategies Action Steps
Common Board Configuration (CBC)

Promote the effective use of the CBC in the CTE classrooms

Establish a consistent instructional routine by utilizing the common board configuration to
begin the class by introducing the essential question, daily objectives and activities, refer to the essential question and common board throughout the period and revisit at the end of the class.

Provide active coaching in the development of the instructional routine by utilizing the common board configuration to begin the class by introducing the essential question, daily objectives and activities, refer to the essential question and common board throughout the period and revisit at the end of the class.

High Order Thinking (HOTS)

Promote the effective use of high order questions and rigorous activities in the CTE classrooms.

 Utilize strategies to develop and implement higher order questions and rigorous activities during classroom instruction and all other instructional activities.

Promote the development of higher order questions and Essential Questions during Common Planning. Promote the display of the developed High Order questions in Lesson Plans, the Common Board Configuration, and student work.

Conduct peer observations in observational classrooms with the focus on higher order questions and rigorous activities. Provide active modeling and coaching in the use of higher order questioning and response techniques throughout the curriculum.

Competitions

Increase rigor and real-world applications through Project Based Learning competition curriculum from CTE Student Organizations (CTSO), or Miami-Dade County Fair, NFTE, Fairchild Challenge, etc.
Develop competition lesson plans and pacing guides using Project Based Learning instructional elements for competitions for appropriate Career Technical Ed Student Organizations (CTSO), Miami- Dade County Fair, National Foundation for Teaching Entrepreneurship (NFTE), Fairchild Challenge or other district-approved competition curriculum.

Develop a timeline of training, attending informational workshops and sessions; and plan for meeting deadlines for registration, proposals, etc.

Attend CTSO Advisor district and /or state training which includes instruction for competition guidelines. Research and plan to attend PD or join Teacher PLC for competitions, such as Robotics or Autodesk PLCs

Explicit and Systematic Instruction

Promote the effective use of Explicit and Systematic Instruction.
Establish a consistent instructional routine in the CTE classes by utilizing the effective use of Explicit and Systematic Instruction with “I do, we do, you do.”

Provide active modeling and coaching in the development of the instructional routine of Explicit and Systematic Instruction in the CTE classes.

Conduct peer observations in observational classrooms with the focus on Explicit and Systematic Instruction.

Technology

Promote the use of Discovery Learning, interactive boards, online software for industry certification in the CTE classrooms.
Promote the use of Discovery Learning, interactive boards, online software for industry certification in the CTE classrooms.

Conduct peer observations in observational classrooms with the focus on effective use of technology during rigorous activities and in conjunction with high order questions. Provide active modeling and coaching in the effective use of technology throughout the curriculum.

Ensure all CTE teachers have received training in the instructional technology listed above.

CTE Frameworks &
Pacing Guides


Each CTE program follows the latest state curriculum standards, program sequence of courses, following a curriculum pacing guide including pacing activities for industry certification.
Plan for instruction using most current CTE curriculum frameworks, following pacing guide for content; including timeline for establishing baseline assessment, interim and/or exam readiness assessment and final certification procedures (exam plus any other requirements, such as work experience.)

 Promote student development of certification goals and student awareness of industry certification timelines. Promote posting of certification information and timelines in classrooms.

Research training opportunities through district or state resources; provide release time for training for industry certification achievement by teacher, test proctor, grade book or other documentation procedures.
