LETTER FROM THE SUPERINTENDENT

Kurt S. Browning

We are pleased to share with you Pasco County Schools’ 2017-18 Success Plan.

In July of 2015, the School Board approved Pasco County Schools’ first ever Success Plan. Unlike so many strategic plans, which end up on shelves gathering dust, our Success Plan is operational. It is the guide for how the district and its schools do business.

This document represents ongoing, collaborative work by hundreds of individuals across the district. Steps taken in this Success Plan are designed to ensure sustainable Pasco schools for years to come – and a world-class education for all of our students.

Now that we are in the third year of our Success Plan, we can see that this plan, its fluid nature, and its performance measures are working. We have seen results in improved student achievement, innovative and cost-saving operational programs, the 8th best teacher retention rate in Florida, and monumental increases in community and stakeholder engagement.

Moving forward, we will more closely align all of our work with this Success Plan, and all of our schools and the district will continue to follow aligned Success Plans that will help us realize our vision, that all of our students achieve success…in college… career… and life.

Sincerely,

Kurt S. Browning

Connecting to the Community

Pasco schools are an integral part of the larger Pasco County community, making it very important for the district and its schools to be active and communicative to families of students – as well as to the business community, community leaders, and the community at large. Tactics outlined on the following pages are aimed at helping to foster a strong relationship between the district and members of the Pasco community.

VOLUNTEER HOURS

members are meaningfully engaged in student education that is linked to achievement, there

is an increase in student achievement and/or success.

NUMBER OF MIDDLE SCHOOLS RECEIVING SILVER SCHOOL AWARDS

Description: Each year, the FLDOE recognizes secondary schools by awarding silver school awards based on volunteer hours equaling half of the school’s FTE count. Typically, five Pasco secondary schools qualify. It is the district’s belief that encouraging more middle schools to strive for the awards will increase parental involvement in middle schools, and thereby increase student achievement.

PARENT CONNECTIONS WITH MYSTUDENT INFORMATION SYSTEM “PARENT PORTAL”

Description: Ensuring that parents are connected and aware of their child’s academic progress is key when building a strong “school-to-home” partnership. Parents can access their student’s grades, attendance, test history and demographics through the myStudent information system. The more information parents know about their student’s school experiences, the more engaged both the parents and students will be.

INTERNET & SOCIAL MEDIA REACH

Description: More and more, the public turns to the World Wide Web for information. Efforts to increase the number of people who see posts on the website and social media, and the number of unique web page views must be a district priority. Page views illustrate that the community relies on these platforms to get information about the district and its schools. These sites also provide the district with the opportunity to tell its story to the public. We can gauge whether our content is useful, interesting, or entertaining by monitoring the number of views on these pages.

WORK-BASED LEARNING OPPORTUNITIES

Description: Work-based learning is an instructional strategy that is essential in preparing all

students for success in postsecondary education and careers. The primary purposes of work- based learning are to expose students to future options and provide opportunities for skill

development and mastery over time. All work-based learning experiences involve interactions

with business, industry or community professionals that are linked to school-based instruction. These learning experiences are intentionally designed to help students extend and deepen

classroom work and to make progress toward learning outcomes that are difficult to achieve through classroom or standard project-based learning alone. These work-based learning

opportunities can take the form of job shadowing, internships, clinical experiences, work

experiences, on-the-job training (OJT), virtual apprenticeships, and school-based enterprises.

METRICS

Introduction

Just as a student’s progress is monitored throughout the year, so will the efforts of our district departments and schools. All schools will develop a plan for success that aligns with the priorities of the District Success Plan including focus areas in one or more of the four strategic pillars; Excellence in Student Achievement, Employee Success, Taxpayer Value and Connecting with the Community.

The Scorecard for Educational Excellence K-12 (SEEK-12) will be used to track performance toward goals, throughout the year, at both the district and school level. Metrics were carefully chosen as priorities within our work, and will be monitored each quarter, each semester or on an annual basis. District and school level metrics are included for each of the four strategic pillars mentioned above.

An important objective of the scorecard is to increase every staff member’s understanding of his/her individual & collective contributions to the overall performance of the District. The data reported through the scorecards will inform decisions at both the district and school level, and will ensure a continuous reflection of practices.

Monitoring performance in a consistent manner across all school levels is a vital component to our success as a system.
