• School effectiveness review schedule and training

    All principals and assistant principals / Deadline: Ongoing

    School effectiveness reviews (SERs) for the 2017-18 school year will be conducted in these 35 schools (listed in chronological order of review). Schools were selected if they (a) have not had an SER since 2013-14 or earlier or (b) are charter or operator-run schools scheduled for renewal in 2018-19.

    School leaders from the selected schools will receive information via email about required orientation, and should plan for a 2.5-day visit based on the schedule below. (Specific times may vary depending on the start and end of the school day.)
    • Day 1: 7:30 a.m. - 3:30 p.m. (8 hours)
    • Day 2: 7:30 a.m. - 3:30 p.m. (8 hours)
    • Day 3: 7:30 a.m. - 11:30 a.m. (4 hours)
    For traditional schools, a session focused on establishing an action plan immediately follows the SER’s conclusion on the third day, from 12:30 p.m. to 3:30 p.m. If possible, key members of school leadership and teachers should attend the session.
