Research Review Series
Research and Evaluation invites you to the March Research Review, "School Quality Review: Now and Beyond", presented by the Department of Innovation Development’s Research and Evaluation staff.
The School Quality Review (SQR) Process is a qualitative needs assessment rooted in the Essentials of School Improvement framework, spearheaded by the Departments of School Transformation and Innovation Development in the Office of Innovation and Information.
“School Quality Review: Now and Beyond” is an interactive session to learn about the SQR and where the district is headed in this process. Presenters will give an overview of the SQR Process, along with the results from spring and fall 2017, and how they fused the SQR results to the Essentials of School Improvement framework. Attendees will be given the opportunity to provide feedback on the key elements of the process, focusing on critical data elements that tie into each essential highlighted.
Please join us on Monday, March 19th from 4:30 PM to 6:00 PM in Room 212 at Pulaski High School, 2500 W. Oklahoma Avenue. All are welcome to attend.
