The form encourages school leadership to explain the way in which the school is organized to support student achievement teacher practice.2012-13 Selection CriteriaSelection criteria determining 2012-13 Quality Reviews.
The Quality Review is a two- or three-day school visit by experienced educators to each New York City school. During the review, the external evaluator visits classrooms, talks with school leaders, and uses a rubric to evaluate how well the school is organized to support student achievement.
Before a reviewer visits a school, the school leadership creates a self-evaluation based on the Quality Review rubric using this form. Reviewers draw upon this document and school data during conversations they have with principals, teachers, students, and parents during the school visit. Reviewers have these conversations to develop a well-rounded perspective of the way in which schools use information about outcomes to guide teaching, set goals for improvement, and make adjustments (e.g. to the curriculum or via the use of resources).
