Impact

Outcomes at All Levels

When creating  capacity for State education systems to make full and effective use of evidence-based programs and other innovations, outcomes are realized at several levels.  Thus, within a statewide infrastructure for implementation the outcomes are:

  1. Improved outcomes for students.  Moving all the indicators is the ultimate prize!
  2. Improved outcomes for teachers is critical to  improving student success.  Students cannot benefit from education best practices unless teachers use those practices in the classroom.
  3. Improved outcomes for building staff (Principals, administrators, support staff, Implementation Teams) are essential to support teachers’ uses of education best practices
  4. Improved outcomes for district staff (Superintendents, administrators, support staff, Implementation Teams) are essential to support best practices in buildings.
  5. Improved outcomes for regional staff (service centers and Implementation Teams to support several districts) are critical for supporting best practices in districts.
  6. Improved outcomes for State staff (State leadership and units in the education system, State Transformation Team) are necessary for supporting best practices in regional units.
  7. Improved outcomes for the State Implementation and Scaling up Evidence-based Practices staff are essential for supporting best practices in States across the nation.


To develop  improved outcomes at all these levels, the State Implementation and Scaling up Evidence-based Practices Center begins with the State staff to create the first example of a Regional Implementation Team.  Then, the work begins at the district level.  The work at the district level helps to create district capacity while simultaneously helping to create Regional Implementation Team capacity.  There is a lot of learning about implementation and improvement cycles during this intensive period of work.

Keeping in mind the sequence above, the outcomes will be reviewed for:

  • The State Implementation and Scaling up Evidence-based Practices Center (Exploration, Installation, and Initial Implementation Stages),
  • State staff (Exploration, Installation, and Initial Implementation Stages),
  • Regional staff (Exploration, Installation, and Initial Implementation Stages), and
  • District staff (Exploration Stage).
