The Department is looking for plans that meet the commitments outlined in the LEA Scope of Work, and do so in a way that is tailored to each LEA’s specific needs (as indicated by LEA data) and reflective of the assessment criteria discussed since the first Race to the Top workshops in May. The further an LEA moves from the Scope of Work, its data, and the assessment criteria, the more improvements the plan will need. This is not simply because of federal requirements, but because the LEA Scope of Work reflects the evidence-based reform strategies developed by over a hundred of Delawareans, and each LEA’s data will allow the LEA to focus on its areas of greatest need. The Scope of Work and Assessment Criteria are below, as well as the Success Plan rubric used to evaluate plans.
We have also provided a list of sample activities, deliverables and measures, and two sample completed objectives. Please note that these documents are not comprehensive, nor do they represent the “best” activities, deliverables, measures and narratives for LEA plans. Rather, they should be used to support districts’ planning, by providing some clear examples and thought starters. Ultimately, LEAs should determine their plans’ components based on their districts’ specific needs.
