Seven Signatures of Successful School Sites: Can You Read the Writing on the Wall?
As a consultant who works concurrently in highly successful sites and also in failing schools, Dr. Bone has discerned 7 very specific "signatures" that always appear in the successful sites and almost never show up in failing schools. These Significant 7 are somewhat surprising and can be addressed with reasonable speed and strong impact once they are identified. When school leaders can make a list and learn about very specific examples of the Significant 7, they will leave with a "take away", not just a theory. For example, one of the 7 has to do with the color "green" and this has relevance to research in cognitive science that will also be presented. Leaders will hear stories from the field about ways that failing schools made changes and how successful schools harness the power of the 7 through creative, inexpensive strategies.
