Data and Academic Framework

School Community Councils are encouraged to continually analyze data and set goals that are based on measurable statistics.

Problem Solving Process

Setting Goals, Implementing Plans, Tracking Progress

  1. What is the problem? (Target Identification)
    Define the problem as the measurable gap between the desired outcome and the actual behavior or performance.

  2. Why is it happening? (Analysis of Current Reality)
    Identify possible reasons why there is a gap between expectations and outcomes.

  3. What should be done? (Plan Development and Implementation)
    Using the knowledge gained through problem identification and analysis of current reality select a system support or intervention focused on closing the identified gap.

  4. Did it work?  (Plan Evaluation)
    Determine the effectiveness of implemented plan and make appropriate educational decisions
