At work in your schools
During the final phases of their work, these educators were truly able to see the #FACES of their students.
These school leaders were finding ways to have a meaningful impact in their schools upon return to class.
Great opportunities to learn mean great opportunities to implement.
... there’s so much learning that sits within these 14 Parameters. They are defensible, meaningful and invite robust conversations when seeking to find the root cause of a problem of practice. The language and understanding of this whole school approach has been and continues to be the foundation of my leadership as an advisor, principal, learner and peer. Thank you, Lyn

When the book begins with an endorsement from John Hattie, and an introduction by Alma Harris, you know this is a book to read and share. Lyn Sharratt brings her practical teaching and leading expertise to CLARITY: What Matters Most in Learning, Teaching and Leading (Corwin, 2019) by grounding the text in the robust 14 Parameters, drawn initially from Lyn’s work as a system leader in York Region District School Board (YRDSB) in Ontario, Canada (Putting FACES on the Data. (2012). Sharratt, L. & Fullan, M. CA: Corwin Press. The material explored in CLARITY’s 368 pages, grows from her previous works, spiraling and consolidating lessons learned from her recent work both locally and internationally. Her ongoing work with so many systems in various parts of the world demonstrates the reliability and validity of the 14 Parameters approach to System and School Improvement.

Hi Lyn, I took part in your recent Clarity webinar series. I am principal of a terrific, low ICSEA, primary school with a highly diverse student population in the SW of Western Australia. My learning from the series has helped to confirm our current path and inform our school planning processes.
Thanks for a wonderful day. The teachers I am working with are so inspired by your work. It is the driver of all the wonderful growth within the school. Today the data shows a 30% decrease in the number of students in the lower two bands. They were so proud.

I really enjoyed meeting you today and having the privilege of introducing you. I am in awe of your work and passion!
There were so many people who commented to me that for them, your presentation was the highlight of the Conference.
The photos below were taken by the professional conference photographer. I will also send you the ones which I took.
I wish you well for the next two Forums, your stay in Melbourne and a safe flight Home!

Thank you Lyn – you have made an incredible contribution to Victoria’s government school leaders. Your work has been fabulous learning for all of us – and so relevant to the initiatives we are embarking on system wide.
With very warm regards Gene

Thank you so much for the opportunity to participate in your work in using the 14 Parameter Research and the Case Management approach (Data Walls and Case Management Meetings). The two days last week in Toowoomba have given us the tools to move forward, and it is now full steam ahead. We have had non-stop meetings this week and are moving mountains very quickly. Some big decisions needed to be made and our work with you has been the catalyst for our leadership team to take action. Positive change is happening already!
Thank you again, and travel safely.
