School Quality Review. Turning Points: Transforming Middle Schools
Naidoo, Jordan
Center for Collaborative Education
All schools need to constantly reflect on the quality of their work and the progress and achievements that they make over time. The primary goal of an accountability system is to help schools improve through critical self-reflection. It enables students, teachers, and other members of the school community to evaluate their practices, especially the quality of learning. The school community welcomes an external viewpoint because it can enhance and strengthen good practices. The Turning Points accountability process has two major components: the Annual Assessment and the School Quality Review (SQR). This guide focuses on one of the two components, namely the School Quality Review, which includes the School Self-Assessment and the School Quality Review Visit. Two appendices are included: (1) Sample Visit Schedule; and (2) Sample Report Format and Example of Commendations, Issues, and Recommendations. (Contains 5 footnotes.)
