Implementation Timeline

The following outlines the proposed timeline for this preliminary implementation study.

This study is designed to take place during a single semester. The study will take place during the inaugural semester of implementation of the OAS for ELA, the 2016 Fall semester, to inform work aligned to the standards in the Spring 2017 semester.

Screen Shot 2016-08-11 at 12.21.23 PMIn the visual to the right, the timeline is set for August 2016 through January 2017. During August 2016, it is assumed districts will be engaging in an annual Planning Cycle (represented by the yellow belt), however, the ELA Task Force recognizes that most districts have been working in this mode since May 2016.

The Tasks detailed in the preceding pages will occur between September and December 2016 (represented by the orange, green, and purple belts). Feedback will be collected via a combination of surveys, audio, and video recordings depending on the accessibility of technology. Providing multiple avenues of collecting feedback and strategically leveraging technology is intended to (1) streamline the process for teachers to participate without negatively consuming time from daily professional commitments and (2) ensure the most authentic representation of teachers’ voice is represented in the Summary Report.

Compiling the Summary Report is the primary objective for the Revision Cycle, taking place during December 2016 and January 2017 (represented by the blue belt). The Summary Report intends to reflect teachers’ experiences applying the OAS for ELA and inform work in the subsequent Planning Cycle (represented by the red belt).

The following slides provide an at-a-glance explanation of the cycles detailed in the previous paragraphs.
