Standards and Indicators for School Improvement

Published: 10/22/2012 2:51 PM

The Standards and Indicators for School Improvement define the elements of whole school improvement that schools can put into effect at the elementary, middle and high school levels in order to produce desired learning results.
The nine standards are organized within three sections - Academic Performance; Learning Environment; and Efficiency.
The School Level Performance Descriptors and Glossary for Kentucky's Standards and Indicators for School Improvement provides indicators that support educators as they make decisions about how best to manage their schools.  Variance Points, are indicators determined by the most recent audit/review findings.  These indicators are also defined as those indicators where results vary greatly from Level 3 schools to Successful schools.
 
The SISI toolkit provides resources and tools intentionally linked to the Standards and Indicators for School Improvement and focuses on high expectations for teaching and learning.  The toolkit provides easy access to information including documents, books, and websites.
