School Leader's Literacy Walkthrough for Grades K-3

Development and Examination of an Alternative School Performance Index in South Carolina

The objective of this project was to create a tool, in the form of a user-friendly checklist, that will support school leaders as they determine which components of literacy and which aspects of instruction they should observe as they conduct walkthroughs during literacy instruction in K-3 classrooms. The tool is intended for school leaders' use in order to:

  • enhance literacy instruction knowledge for both school leaders and K-3 teachers;
  • provide an effective way to communicate with K-3 teachers expectations about literacy instruction;
  • specify consistent language regarding literacy components and instructional strategies; and
  • be the basis of communication and collaboration among school leaders and teachers, which, according to research, can improve student achievement.

To address this challenge, REL Southeast worked in partnership with South Carolina to determine whether the state's measures of school performance could be consolidated into a single composite index to identify high- and low-performing schools and schools that were "beating the odds."
