District Self-Assessment Tool. College Readiness Indicator Systems Resource Series
Annenberg Institute for School Reform at Brown University
The purpose of the "District Self-Assessment Tool" is to provide school district and community stakeholders with an approach for assessing district capacity to support a college readiness indicator system and track progress over time. The tool draws on lessons from the collective implementation experiences of the four College Readiness Indicator Systems (CRIS) network sites (Dallas Independent School District, New Visions for Public Schools in New York City, Pittsburgh Public Schools, and San Jose Unified School District) that are reported in "Essential Elements in Implementation." In particular the following capabilities that are critical to developing a college readiness indicator system are: (1) Engaging leadership commitment to a college readiness indicator system; (2) Building data infrastructure; (3) Strengthening adult capacity around data use and college readiness; (4) Connecting indicators with supports to promote college readiness; and (5) Developing partnerships with community institutions and institutions of higher education.
