The ROCI Process as the guiding model
SFUSD has adopted the Results-Oriented Cycle of Inquiry (ROCI) as a process for focusing on student outcomes. The CCSS-M implementation will use this same cycle of inquiry to build communities of practice at sites, among grade level colleagues in the district, and also among district leaders. ROCI can be used for any sustained effort of improving practice, including the development of leadership skills, facilitation skills, and teaching.
The Results-Oriented Cycle of Inquiry (ROCI), which we have adopted throughout SFUSD, is a powerful process for focusing directly on student outcomes. ROCI stimulates us to learn from our successes and to diagnose and problem-solve our shortfalls. ROCI engages us as leaders throughout the district—teachers and administrators alike—in an ongoing process of learning and improvement.
