Reviewing Your Schoolwide Plan

Monthly Reviews

  • Tracking and discussion of data is recommended each month.
  • Post data results.
  • Analyze the data results. Is there significant progress? Do you need additional data?
    Have any new issues or areas of concern emerged? Will these require changes to your original plan? Should you implement these changes now, or record them for discussion at a major/yearly review?
  • If there is no significant progress over a reasonable amount of time, are there changes you should make to your original plan?
  • View your school’s timeline for implementation. Are there any actions that were scheduled to be completed but were not.
  • Note changes in each month’s data. Did something different happen that month that may account this change?
  • Are there certain instructional practices that teachers like/dislike more than others? What do the data results demonstrate about these instructional practices?
  • Are there any outside factors that could be influencing each month’s data?

Yearly Reviews

  • Examine the progress the school has made toward each goal. If adequate progress is not being made, examine the data further to determine whether any relevant trends or relationships can be seen.
  • Review student achievement– this is the main focus of your schoolwide plan. Have you raised student achievement? Disaggregate data based on student participation in schoolwide activities. Determine, is our schoolwide plan raising student achievement? Why or why not? Which goals are helping? Which goals are not?
  • Are the needs that you first observed still prioritized accurately? Are any new needs emerging?
  • Review goals, indicators, and strategies to determine if any revisions are needed.
  • Review the “Required Component Checklist” to determine if any revisions are needed.
