Project: Year 7 2018–2019

North Carolina Instructional Improvement Systems

The Southeast Comprehensive Center (SECC) is working with the North Carolina Department of Public Instruction (NCDPI) staff to strengthen the Global Ready program through revised district and school renewal procedures and support for educators pursuing certification, as informed by qualitative data collection and analysis. The SECC staff also will strengthen personalized learning practices through trainings and resources delivered to NCDPI staff to promote consistent implementation statewide.

Technical Assistance Approach

The SECC is providing technical assistance (TA) around qualitative data collection and using the data to inform the refinement of the Global Ready district and school renewal applications. The SECC and NCDPI will hold bimonthly meetings to discuss the progress of the project activities. In addition, SECC will co-develop qualitative data tools to collect school and district support information regarding educators taking professional development offerings toward the Global Educator Digital Badge.  The SECC, in partnership with the Center on Innovations in Learning (CIL), also will co-facilitate a series of trainings on personalized learning.

Impact
  • Strengthened Global Ready program through revised district and school renewal procedures and support for educators pursuing certification 
  • Strengthened personalized learning practices through trainings and resources delivered to NCDPI staff to promote consistent implementation statewide

Project Updates

Most Recent Update: 2018 | October

Southeast Comprehensive Center (SECC) and North Carolina Department of Public Instruction (NCDPI) staff worked together to co-create presentation slides for the October 4 state board of education meeting. The slides were presented by the NCDPI Global Education lead consultant. The presentation provided project highlights to the board regarding Global Education initiatives, designated schools and districts, and an update on the educators earning the Global Educator Designation Badge. During the month of October, the SECC project team and NCDPI also met to discuss the current Global Education designation rubrics for schools and districts. SECC provided a crosswalk between current rubrics and student global competencies as laid out by the Council of Chief State School Officers (CCSSO) and the Asian Society. A project timeline was discussed. In November, project team meetings are scheduled to discuss the application and renewal rubrics for Global-Ready schools and districts designation honors.

As evidence of impact, NCDPI staff presented to the state board regarding the increase in campuses applying for the Global-Ready school designation and the progress made in the area of Global Education in North Carolina. NCDPI staff have begun to recognize the importance of using research-based materials and articles to improve the rubrics for the future.
