The only essential criterion for a needs assessment at the school district level is that it be focused on the students. This criterion is integrated into the seven factors that compose a successful needs assessment: (1) prediction of skills needed in the future (what the schools should provide students five or ten years from the present); (2) identification of student characteristics; (3) documentation of activities and success of the current local educational process; (4) deciding how to optimize the operations of the school district, based on the first three factors; (5) implementation; (6) evaluation; and (7) recycling (reassessment of needs, continued modification of programs, and further evaluation).
