Blitz Day Success in Windom!

Blitz Day

Another awesome email…

We just had a Blitz day last week in which we took 60 missing assignments off the ICU List which reduced our List by 62%! We’re loving what the Power of ICU List and Standards Based Grading has done for us!

Way To Go Luverne!

We are hearing awesome things about Luverne Middle/High School in Luverne, MN. Luverne Middle School and High School are Power of ICU Partner Schools implementing the proven Power of ICU Formula. So far this year they are celebrating over 4,000 assignments completed AND 21,000+ daily communications sent to Luverne parents!

Kudos Principal Ryan Johnson and staff! THIS is Success!

Dropping Failure Rates!

We have completed 1757 assignments grades 6 thru 12. Last year, when we were just using the Power of ICU Formula in our middle school, our failure rate dropped 30 percent in a semester. ICU has been terrific!!!

Power of ICU- Blitz Day Success!

260 student school…we have completed 1,457 assignments! 

We completed our first blitz in December and students completed EVERY assignment to fidelity. We are planning our 2nd blitz in March and calling it the “Basketball Blitz”. We will have a students -vs- teachers basketball game with ME as the referee!

At the half way point last year we had 276 course failures.  Frankly, the number of students failing was out of control.  We were allowing the students to CHOOSE to fail.  THIS YEAR WE ARE NOT! 

This year at the half way point we have 239 LESS course failures than the previous year at the half way point. What an incredible accomplishment for us all (including our students).

I just wanted to share with you all where we are and I know as we work through this process and focus on the ICU Formula for Success (Assignment Completion + Quality Assignments + Healthy Grading Practices = SUCCESS) things are only going to get even better.  I am proud to have the opportunity to work at Washington Middle School!

…An attainable and measurable goal!

I just wanted to let you know that we finished our first semester with ZERO missing assignments at Fairview High School. I’m including a spreadsheet that shows how much our grades improved from a year ago.

Our biggest surprise is that we went from 75% A’s and B’s in the 2015/16 school year to 96% A’s and B’s in the 2016/17 school year.

I am proud of our students and staff!  Thank you for presenting to us and helping us change the culture in our school.
