Reflection - School Improvement Plan


As a math teacher, I love data. I like collecting data, manipulating data, analyzing data, and making predictions using data. School improvement is directly tied to data. As I analyzed current practices and looked at data, I became aware of small factors that could contribute to great success. I believe that as I learn and develop my data analysis skills I will be more adept at identifying areas of need.

School Improvement Plan


The No Child Left Behind act (NCLB) has brought about massive changes to public education across this nation. No Where Technical High School (NWTHS) is no different than any other public school. Data is a driving force within NCLB and at NWTHS. The school is publicly scrutinized based on the results of standardized tests such as the Connecticut Academic Performance Test (CAPT) and the various tests from the National Occupational Competency Testing Institute (NOCTI).

Program Evaluation



Students must develop a School Improvement Action Plan with an evaluation using the internship site as a context. The 5-8 page Action Plan, designed to improve student achievement, should include the use of data, the involvement of all stakeholders and an evaluation component.
