District and School Profiles for Quality Education.
Grande Prairie School District No. 2357 (Alberta).
Schools and districts have functioned for too long on the premise that they have a clear understanding of the quality of their graduates. Traditional methods for measuring the effectiveness of education relied too heavily on standardized test scores. The production of annual school and district profiles is an ongoing commitment in the Grande Prairie Public School District (Alberta, Canada). The profiles provide interested stakeholders with current and valuable data not only to judge the health of their educational system, but also to identify specific areas in need of attention. Annual feedback allows schools to measure progress or the effect of their efforts to improve areas of education. This feedback enables schools and school districts to become more efficient and effective in delivering education to their clientele. A more effective and efficient educational system, as identified by stakeholders, will result in a positive educational experience for all. Seven appendixes present supplemental information and instruments. Four tables present district information. (Contains 16 references.) (Author/SLD)
