Project: Year 7 2018–2019

North Carolina Student Success and Sustainability Project

The Southeast Comprehensive Center is providing technical assistance (TA) to North Carolina Department of Public Instruction (NCDPI) staff to refine the regional support model, including designing meetings of academic division leaders and creating communication protocols and professional development tools. SECC experts also will share research on education-based case management systems and data-based decision-making to inform district supports provided by NCDPI. 

Technical Assistance Approach

The SECC will provide meeting facilitation TA to NCDPI staff and guidance to NCDPI leadership to include assistance with co-developing presentation materials for collective impact meetings and developing communication protocols and other documents to disseminate information about the regional structure throughout the department and to local districts. In addition, SECC staff will share research on education-based case management systems and data-based decision-making to inform district supports provided by NCDPI.

Impact
  • Improved materials and assets through the establishment of a regional structure to provide targeted support to low-performing schools in the state
  • Improved organizational structures and processes for sharing information across departments through communication tools and common language about the regional support structure
  • Increased knowledge and skills among NCDPI staff to support low-performing schools with the elements of collective impact and among regional case managers with case management techniques

Project Updates

Most Recent Update: 2018 | October

Project team members from the Southeast Comprehensive Center (SECC) and the North Carolina Department of Public Instruction (NCDPI) co-developed a meeting agenda and slide presentation for the monthly regional support team meeting. The meeting was held on October 18 at the NCDPI building with the academic division leaders as well as leaders from the educator support services division.

A monthly meeting has been scheduled for November to further discuss the role of NCDPI division leaders and their staff in the regional support structure. Discussions will be held about a menu of services and communication protocols.

As evidence of impact, NCDPI leaders have been able to articulate the design of the regional support structure to the North Carolina State Board of Education. Each month, the deputy superintendent of District Support presents updates to the state board from the monthly working meetings.
