Turnaround Principles

The ESEA Flexibility Waiver states that Targeted Intervention Schools will be required to implement the Turnaround Principles (within 12 months of being designated). The Turnaround Principle - WISE Indicator Crosswalk shows how the 17 required WISE indicators align with the Turnaround Principles (not in C3S). By completing the WISE Plan, designated schools are also addressing the Turnaround Principles. Further review of the implementation of the Turnaround Principles will be completed semiannually by the assigned School Support Team Specialist.

Designation Forms

The ESEA Flexibility waiver states that Targeted Intervention schools will submit progress made toward implementation of the Turnaround Principles semi-annually to the State Department of Education. This data collection is facilitated through the WISE Tool. Additional information regarding Targeted Intervention schools will be collected through the WISE Tool under a tab labeled Complete Forms. Targeted Intervention schools will complete the form labeled Targeted Intervention Designation Form.

Data Review

The purpose of conducting Data Reviews is to analyze school benchmark assessment data at the student level in reading, mathematics, and other content areas and to analyze how performance relates to the state standards/Oklahoma Academic Standards. Other data to be reviewed may include student behavior and professional activities.
