The SEZP core principles and strategies are being implemented in schools through a variety of mechanisms:
- Teacher Leadership Teams (TLT): Each school has a teacher elected Teacher Leadership Team (TLT) that has been tasked with the responsibility of creating the School Operational Plan (SOP).
- School Operational Plans (SOP): Each School Operational Plan, designed by the school’s TLT, must be presented to and approved by the SEZP Board during the May meeting.
- Performance Goals: The SEZP board is currently developing bold but attainable performance goals for each school that will show the school’s progress towards closing the achievement gap.
- External Start-Up Partners: A multitude of proven partners is providing school support in the development of SOPs, new calendars and schedules, individualized school budgets, professional learning opportunities, and other school redesign efforts.
