SMART Goals have the power to create increased focus and attention on the greatest concerns with student achievement in every school and district. SMART goals are goals that are:
S – Specific and Strategic
M – Measurable
A – Attainable
R – Results-based
T – Timebound
In the following video segment, see how a group of educators uses SMART goals to approach the low reading and language skills in their school.
Also, join the SMART Goals Learning Community in PD 360 and you will find highly useful documents and video segments that support SMART School Improvement, from a vision of what a SMART School looks like, to an assessment of where your school is relative to that vision, to templates and rubrics designed to help you assure that your goals are SMART. You will discover more about the SMART Measurement System and have the ongoing opportunity to learn with and from colleagues as the community grows in both participation and the resources offered.
