Understand Expectations Well

As I consider end-of-the-year scores and assessments, I am reminded of the fact that it is important to understand a school system's priorities well at the start of the year.  It is also important to look carefully and discuss the tools, strategies, and processes that worked to raise students' achievement in particular areas and the efforts that didn't work as well. Analyzing this information at the end of one year will lead to a better start and greater progress the next year.
