Quality Academy for New Teachers

As part of the Baldrige implementation plan in MCPS, a quality academy has been established at Sherwood Elementary School. The academy is designed to provide teachers with a hands-on approach for understanding how to develop a Baldrige-guided classroom learning system.

While attending the academy, teachers do the following:

  • Develop a general understanding of the Baldrige approach to teaching and learning.

  • Develop an understanding of the rationale behind building Classroom Learning Systems.

  • Learn about the effectiveness of systematic and systemic planning and evaluation.

  • Learn and use strategies that will enable teachers to plan and assess using the Baldrige Criteria.

  • Learn and use high-quality tools that will promote systematic and systemic change.

  • Learn and use processes that will reinforce student and parent accountability.

  • Develop an understanding of the importance of shared decision-making and stakeholder input as it relates to student achievement.

  • Observe teachers using Baldrige in their classrooms with students.
