• School Improvement 
     
    AAESA Instructional Services supports districts and buildings with their School Improvement initiatives.

    The School Improvement Process is an ongoing process and is not intended to be a one-time event. Data obtained at each stage informs the next stage. The process continues over the course of several years until the student achievement goals are accomplished and the achievement gap eliminated.

    This process cycle provides the foundation to address school improvement and promote student achievement through a comprehensive and systemic approach consisting of the following main tasks:
    1. Gather - Collect Data and Build School Profile
    2. Study - Analyze Data, Set Goals and Objectives
    3. Plan - Develop an Improvement Plan
    4. Do - Implement, Monitor, and Evaluate this Plan

    The School Improvement Plan is intended to be the vehicle that drives the continuous improvement process.
