At this phase of the process the key objective is to decide on your achievement challenges and develop a strategic plan. Developing the achievement challenges plan enables you to clarify exactly what it is that you are wanting to achieve and how you are going to achieve this.
Identifying achievement challenges will involve gathering, collating and analysing student achievement data to identify the trends and the target students. Once your achievement challenges have been developed the next step will be to understand why the challenge has arisen. For example is it about student wellbeing or the curriculum they experience. Once you understand this you can develop a strategic plan to mobilise key actions and resources. Again, it is important that time is spent developing this, as this is your action plan to guide the implementation of the Community of Learning | Kāhui Ako programme. Remember to focus on things that the Community of Learning | Kāhui Ako can achieve through collaboration. The indicator of success will be to achieve more effective results as a Community, than what each school could achieve on its own. It is important that boards are well informed during this process as each board will be asked to approve any resource allocation.
Expected Outcomes: Achievement challenges and achievement challenges plan are developed for the MoU
