Signaling verses reporting
Updated: Sep 11, 2019
Signaling is the process we use in True Accountability to communicate our accountability to outside audiences. Signaling is different than reporting. While reporting is about the past, Signaling is about where we are going. A school leader Signals regularly by considering an area of focus and asking the following: when I consider the evidence and what we are trying to become, how do I anticipate spending the next six months? Are we likely to be on task? In a period of adjustment? Or will we need additional supports to pull this off?
Signaling occurs at the beginning of a quarter since it is about work to be done.
