This part of our Guidelines outlines what is needed to meet the training needs of school staff. Professional development should be a continuous systematic process that ensures support for new and current school personnel and is fully integrated with ongoing school improvement plans. When designing professional development plans and opportunities, determining the level of knowledge for each training area is the initial concern. Before engaging in a training event, each staff member must decide what level of knowledge is necessary for the subject and whether the particular activity will achieve that result. The following three levels provide an outline for planning professional development activities. Level I: Awareness An overview that provides general understanding of basic principles and how to obtain more information.

Extractions: VERMONT ECONOMIC PROGRESS COUNCIL Purpose/History The Vermont Economic Progress Council (VEPC- pronounced like Pepsi) is an independent council of nine Vermont citizens appointed by the governor. In addition to the nine appointed members, there are two regional representatives from each region, one designated by the regional development corporation and one by the regional planning commission. The regional representatives are non-voting members. The council is staffed by an executive director and an administrative staff who are "attached" to the Vermont Department of Economic Development for administrative support. The Council was originally created as part of the Economic Recovery Act of 1993 as a forum for the government and the private sector to work together in the public interest to create economic development plans for a diverse, sustainable economy for Vermont. The legislation identified nine broad policy areas and asked for recommendations to the governor and general assembly for implementing the state's economic planning agenda. With the input of the public, non-profits, the business community, and state government, the Council periodically updates the long-range economic plan entitled " A Plan for a Decade of Progress ." The Council is currently working on the next update which is expected to be ready in December, 2002.

Extractions: Becoming a High Schools That Work State or Site How a state can join How a school can join in a HSTW state How a school can join in a non- HSTW state How does a state become a member of High Schools That Work? The number of High Schools That Work states has increased from 13 in 1987 to 27 in 2001. They are Alabama, Arkansas, Delaware, Florida, Georgia, Hawaii, Idaho, Indiana, Kansas, Kentucky, Louisiana, Maryland, Massachusetts, Mississippi, Missouri, New Jersey, New York, North Carolina, Ohio, Oklahoma, Pennsylvania, South Carolina, Tennessee, Texas, Vermont, Virginia and West Virginia. When a state joins HSTW , it becomes part of a consortium comprising SREB and the member states. This consortium is dedicated to getting at least 85 percent of career-bound high school students to complete a challenging program of study and to reach or exceed the HSTW performance goals in reading, mathematics and science. The intent is to prepare students for productive careers and further learning. High Schools That Work represents a cost-effective way for states to join SREB and other states in offering high schools a proven framework of goals and key practices for raising student achievement. The consortium meets three times annually to discuss progress in improving student achievement and to address issues of leadership, staff development, technical assistance and accountability. SREB and the states are partners in delivering services to member schools and in encouraging policy-makers to enact needed legislation and policies to improve high schools for all students. States sign a memorandum of understanding with SREB and agree to assume certain responsibilities associated with maintaining and developing a state network of school-improvement sites.

Extractions: CPRE Policy Brief: Building Capacity for Education Reform - December 1995 Proponents of systemic education reform have outlined several strategies aimed at increasing student learning. Our research suggests that these strategies themselves may be important avenues for building teacher and organization capacity to achieve goals of standards-based reform. Articulating a Reform Vision. Articulating and establishing a reform vision can provide a frame for creating and evaluating all aspects of the reform. As noted earlier, vision is a central component of organizational capacity. In addition, the very process of establishing a common vision can itself be a capacity-building endeavor for the public and for educators. Providing Instructional Guidance. Providing state-level instructional guidancesuch as curriculum frameworks, instructional materials, professional development activities, or assessments linked to state standardscan promote capacity in two central ways. It can help teachers, schools, and districts construct curriculum, design instructional strategies, promote professional development, and evaluate progress. And it may provide additional opportunities for professional learning, either through direct professional development activities or through such indirect activities as scoring state performance assessments. Restructuring Governance and Organizational Structures.
