Priority and Focus Quality Review

Alternative Quality Reviews refer to formative reviews that are conducted by the school’s network. These reviews do not yield a published report although reports for all schools identified as Priority or Focus by the New York State Education Department (NYSED) will be submitted to NYSED.

The Priority and Focus School Quality Review (PFQR) is designed to provide schools that have been identified by the New York State Education Department as Priority or Focus with the opportunity to work together with their network team to strengthen the school’s instructional core, improve student outcomes, and meet the criteria for reaching proficient or well-developed on the Quality Review. In addition, the PFQR report includes a set of recommendations that will be used to develop the subsequent School Comprehensive Education Plan (SCEP).
