Leading Stepping Stones Implementation as You Prepare for School Reopening
Now more than ever a strong plan is needed to prepare for and support implementation. Join our 4-part implementation science series beginning in June as we guide you in planning for your Stepping Stones implementation in the new school year. Not just for first year users! This series will share resources and help you develop a plan that can adapt to any change in instructional delivery that might occur next year. Register for the first 2 webinars in the series below.
Exploration Phase: Resources and Supports
Now more than ever leading a successful Stepping Stones implementation will be critical as you prepare for school reopening. In the first session of the 2020-2021 Implementation Science Professional Learning Series we will focus on how to set up a team that can guide your implementation in a variety of instructional settings that could occur: face-to-face, remote or a hybrid model of instruction. Designed for new implementations and returning users, you will learn resources and supports to start planning and set goals for math instruction in the new school year.
Installation Phase: Developing an Implementation Plan
Deliberately the week after the Camp Stepping Stones virtual conference, this session will build on the previous Implementation Science session where resources and supports were discussed to help you begin thinking about your implementation in the fall. This session focuses on the training and support Stepping Stones teachers will need as you further develop your implementation plan.
Initial Implementation Phase
Initial Implementation Phase: Developing an Implementation Plan
Now that school is started, it’s time to check in on math instruction. In this webinar, you will learn the key features and activities of the Initial Implementation stage. While this may not be your first year using Stepping Stones, teaching in a distance or hybrid environment is still new for many. During this stage, practice is carried across sites, and school system leadership teams use a Plan, Do, Study, Act cycle to monitor progress and adjust the implementation plan along the way. Information will be shared in this webinar related to the collection and analysis of implementation data so that teams can identify barriers and seek solutions to change practice and improve implementation efforts during this challenging time. We will share a set of brief survey questions schools and districts can use to easily gather data about how teachers are using Stepping Stones.
Implementation Phase: Reflection and Planning for Sustainability
Join Dr. Jennifer Dale to reflect on this challenging year and begin to plan for next year.
Dr. Jennifer Dale’s competency in research-based implementation, system change, and system coaching has facilitated the application of key processes among state and local teams to improve student outcomes. She served as a co-lead on a team responsible for the implementation of ORIGO Stepping Stones across all elementary schools in a school district in Maryland.
