California's new accountability system includes standards for local indicators to assist local educational agencies (LEAs) in measuring and reporting their progress. The CDE's School Conditions and Climate Work Group recommended revisions for the LCFF Priority 6 (School Climate) self-reflection tool that would better support LEAs with this work (https://www.cde.ca.gov/be/pn/im/documents/memo-ocd-oct17item01a1.pdf). The revisions provided below reflect the work group’s proposed three-part methodology for approaching school conditions and climate accountability and continuous improvement work: Data, Meaning, and Use. The intent is to support a practical approach to continuous improvement and accountability.
The proposed update to the self-reflection tool is presented below. Following the update, we invite you to provide feedback through a set of five brief questions.
Thank you in advance!
