KASS Logo with white KSNThe Kentucky Superintendents’ Network is pleased to host regional one-day trainings for Principals and other leaders which will focus on the nuts and bolts of building Kentucky Student Growth Goals (SGGs). National leader in teacher effectiveness work, Dr. Lauri Leeper will present the basis for and the steps in the SGG process, the Principal’s role in making SGGs work in their schools, and how to help teachers create SGGs that are solid and sustainable.

Participants will create an SGG, put it to the SMART test, and align instructional strategies that are research-based and oriented to student success. Working in concert with fellow principals and other participants with the same questions, participants will have opportunities to fill their toolbox with sound actions to take back to their schools.
Each participant will receive a copy of the KY Student Growth Goal Guidebook: SGG’s from Start to Finish—intended to be the go-to resource for the SGG process. The process of student growth goal setting will be spelled out explicitly.
