A yearly update of the School’s Continuous Improvement Plan (CIP) is required for schools in School Improvement. The action steps and goals in the school’s CIP need to be based on current data, and therefore an up-to-date self-assessment is needed. The focus of the Standards & Rubrics self-assessment is on assessing the effectiveness of the school for the purpose of sustained improvement in academic achievement. Continuous improvement practices, including regular evaluations, are recommended for all schools.
The Standards and Rubrics for School Improvement can be located at http://www.azed.gov/schooleffectiveness/STDSRUBRIC.pdf
