Guide for Program Quality Review: High School.
California State Dept. of Education, Sacramento.
As the 21st century approaches, more students than ever need to be educated to higher levels so that they can: (1) compete successfully in the increasingly technological job market; (2) participate in the democratic system; and (3) develop strong moral and ethical values and the ability to reach their individual potentials. The new Program Quality Review (PQR) has been designed to help California high schools pursue these goals. This guidebook outlines the components of the PQR process. Five sections describe guidelines for initiating and implementing the model, understanding the role of consultants, gathering and analyzing student work, and conducting a self-review report. The final section contains tools and resources for conducting the PQR process: a sample process for establishing schoolwide learning outcomes, a sample of schoolwide learning outcomes, suggested categories for the student/community profile, and discussion questions.
