The Handbook for SMART School Teams is a comprehensive guide to forming, working in, and achieving results from school teams, and is written specifically for school teams. These teams might include grade-level teams, steering teams, school improvement teams, process improvement teams, and committees and task forces. The book begins with a foreword by Rick DuFour and Bob Eaker. It is important to note that this handbook is the perfect companion resource for a school that is seeking to become, or has already started the process of becoming, a professional learning community. SMART Schools is based on the same idea for school improvement as PLC that the focus of a school should be on student learning and that goals should be Strategic and specific, Measurable, Attainable, Results-based, and Time-bound. The book s foundation comes from W. Edwards Deming (the pioneer of quality improvement) and his theory of continuous improvement (Plan, Do, Study, Act). When an entire school community is thinking PDSA, learning and improvement become second nature and schools can move rapidly up the learning curve to understand how and why progress is (or is not) being made.

About the Author:

Anne Conzemius, M.S., is a former school psychologist and executive assistant to the Wisconsin State Superintendent and has spent many years working in quality improvement in the public and private sectors.

Jan O'Neill, M.S., is a former teacher who became one of the pioneers in applying quality principles system-wide in municipal and state governments and health care.

Both authors are adjunct faculty for Cardinal Stritch University in Milwaukee and cofounders of Quality Leadership by Design, LLC, based in Madison, WI.

Review:

Conzemius and O'Neill hit the mark! With today's high-stakes accountability, the time-tested SMART principles are needed more than ever. Today's leader must distribute leadership among employees with teams. Conzemius and O'Neill expand on what successful teams are and how they perform at higher levels. This book is a must for all leaders who base decisions on data and want their school climate to be based upon academic expectations and success!

--Edward W. Costa II, Superintendent, Lenox Public Schools; Professor, American International College
