This manual is designed for superintendents, principals, teachers, and interested community members who are conducting self-evaluations as prescribed by Ohio Minimum Standards for Elementary and Secondary Schools. Its objective is to provide districts with direction to engage in self-evaluation studies using assessment instruments that promote discussions of the programs and that provide a procedure for identifying problems and generating recommendations to ameliorate the problems. Although the evaluation of the educational program and resources is mandatory, the use of this document is optional.
