Comprehensive Operational Assessment Process

Our operational assessment process involves a thorough evaluation that includes the following key components:

  1. Data Analysis: We conduct a detailed analysis of trend data over multiple years, covering academic performance, operational efficiency, school culture, and financial health and sustainability. This analysis helps us identify patterns and potential areas of concern.

  2. Artifact Analysis: We review and analyze critical documents such as policies, procedures, handbooks, protocols, bylaws, and websites. This artifact analysis ensures that your school's practices are aligned with best practices, as well as legal and regulatory requirements.

  3. Stakeholder Input: Engaging with stakeholders is crucial for a comprehensive assessment, as it provides color and context to the data and evidence. We gather input through interviews, focus groups, and customized surveys to understand the perspectives of students, families, staff, and community members.

  4. Site Visits: Our team conducts site visits to observe instruction, operations, and school culture firsthand. These observations provide valuable insights into the day-to-day functioning of your school.
