understand the challenges facing all types of students as they chart their paths through high school and beyond All Means All Student Advisory Council meetings Led by department staff kicked off this spring Helped the

department better understand the challenges facing all types of students as they progress through high school All Means All Quotes from students: Student Advisory Council meetings [I would like to see] more honors classes and college credit classes. We

only have a few. Like you can't even take any as a freshman. Sometimes you as an individual could understand something very well but the majority of the class doesn't. The whole class will be staying on that subject until everyone gets it. That should be addressed more. More personalized. This is kind of out there, but I'd like to see more communications between schools because I feel like at [my school] we're in our own little world. I would have to say that every single teacher in our school has a personal relationship with at least one student in their group. Every teacher has at least somebody that they will help out with something. Educator Support Supporting the preparation and development of an exceptional educator

workforce Provided additional flexibility for teacher evaluation composite Expanding portfolio assessment options to more districts and more subject areas, including pre-K and kindergarten teachers Testing incentive programs that differentiate salaries, including the Tennessee Teacher Leader Network, throughout the state Pairing teachers in an increasing number of schools through the Instructional Partnership Initiative to provide data-based opportunities for personalized professional learning Launched the Governors Academy for School Leadership for 24 assistant principals and the Transformational Leadership Council to guide the states direction across multiple leadership initiatives.

Educator Support In 201415, an expanded Instructional Partnership Initiative pilot welcomed 93 schools across the state. Below are findings comparing IPI schools to non-IPI schools: Students in IPI schools scored significantly higher on TCAP than students in non-IPI schools. Teachers improved their TVAAS scores, were more likely to feel supported by school leadership and more likely to view evaluations as fair and focused on improving their practice. For teachers with low evaluation scores, participating in a partnership increased their students' TCAP scores by 12

points relative to those of similar teachers in non-IPI schools Administrators in IPI schools were more likely to feel appreciated for their job than those in non-IPI schools. Schools in IPI saw improvements to school culture and increases in morale.
