California’s new accountability system includes standards for local indicators to assist local educational agencies (LEAs) in measuring and reporting their progress. The School Conditions and Climate Work Group suggested revisions for the Priority 6 self-reflection tool that would better support LEAs with this work. The changes provided are based on the work group’s proposed three-part methodology for approaching school conditions and climate accountability and continuous improvement work — Data, Meaning, and Use. This approach helps to support LEAs with not collecting data for its own sake or for purely compliance purposes, but rather moving towards a helpful and practical approach to continuous improvement and accountability.
We invite you to share your thoughts and suggestions on a proposed update for the Self-Reflection Tool for Local Control Funding Formula Priority 6 – School Climate. Your suggestions and feedback will help ensure school districts have an optimal self-reflection tool.
