Building a School Profile: The QPA Needs Assessment Process.
Kansas State Board of Education, Topeka.
As Kansas schools have begun to work through the Quality Performance Accreditation (QPA) process, educators have asked for guidance and the establishment of some uniform parameters. This publication is one of the guides designed to lead schools through the school improvement process called for in the QPA. Creating a school profile is a way of organizing needs in order to make decisions about school improvement efforts. A flowchart depicts a series of steps involved in the profile development process. Efforts are organized into data collection, data organization, and data analysis steps. A key to a successful profile is understanding it not as a product, but as a process in which all stakeholders are involved. Seven appendixes contain the following: (1) a sample background narrative; (2) potential section 1 measures; (3) measures for section 2; (4) measures for section 3; (5) sample data displays; (6) disaggregation of data; and (7) bibliography and credits. (Contains 15 references.) (SLD)
