The idea that every community contains individuals who have found a way to succeed far beyond expectations despite facing the exact same challenges as their peers.

Essential STEP Elements

Data & Measurement

STEP emphasizes the use of practical measurement with regard to student educational indicators, teacher practices, and teacher professional growth/effectiveness. Practical measurement prioritizes the usefulness of data, collected in a sound manner, to inform the team and help test assumptions and hypotheses as related to the challenge that the team identifies.

Effective Facilitation

STEP introduces new approaches to facilitation that are easy to learn and that enhance the team’s coordination, relationship-building, trust, ownership of problems, self-organization, and innovation.

Context & Content Knowledge

Once a challenge has been identified, the STEP team will need to understand the knowledge, attitudes, beliefs, skills, and habits of mind necessary to identify potential solutions and implement them effectively

Leadership & Culture

STEP is committed to a process of “bottom up” change management and the top-down conditions that support and encourage teacher-led innovation.
