Series 0000 – Mission-Goals-Objectives
6. Monitoring and Reporting: State
A. Monitoring and Reporting: District
The District shall develop monitoring reports to assess and communicate compliance with the District’s Ends and Limitations Policies.
- The District shall prepare monitoring reports for each policy that:
- Lead off with an Executive Summary
- Clearly indicate compliance or exceptions in compliance with the corresponding policy
- Compare results with previously set targets
- Contain narrative, comprehensive supporting trend data and analysis
- Include recommendations for effecting improvement where needed
- Are signed by the Superintendent
The Board and Administration will reach agreement on targets and templates for monitoring reports based on proposals by the Administration every two years at a minimum. The discussion will include the extent to which the information provided by the report will adequately demonstrate whether the Ends are achieved by the District.
The Administration will present monitoring reports to the Board according to the schedule set by the Board through its agenda planning. The Board will discuss the data, the Administration’s interpretation of the data, and what actions will be taken, particularly if the data indicates that the targets were not met and recommendations for new targets. The Administration will recommend the most effective strategies and use of resources to move the District toward accomplishment of the targets. The Board will either approve the report or redirect the Administration to provide more adequate data to indicate that the District is achieving its Ends or to propose more effective strategies to achieve the Ends.
Board accountability to the public requires District accountability to the Superintendent and the Superintendent’s accountability to the Board. Accountability demands a data-driven approach.
