Session in Progress

This is a simulation exercise that asks participants to act out various scenarios playing roles (Principal, Teacher with mediocre test scores, Teacher with low test scores, Community member, District administrator). Participants engage in discussion in groups of 4-5 to come to a decision regarding a scenario. They can use the rules as currently understood in their district or the Balancing Voices rules. Participants can engage in group or survey debriefing when done.

The Historical Analysis of Decisions may be used as a guide to describe a recent and important decision made by the school regarding a reform, policy, or practice.

This includes the opportunity for faculty to express their voices regarding decisions; how community input is reflected in the final decision; adequacy of time to implement a new policy or practice; process for evaluating new policies or programs; opportunities to express opinions about the principal; and fairness of evaluation procedures.
