The PA Planning Team conducted optional sessions intended for all Focus and Priority Schools that focused on using the Comprehensive Planning/School Improvement Planning tool as a means to Closing the Achievement Gap. The sessions were delivered in a series of 5 sessions. Our first session was a face-to-face session where we shared our overarching goal of using the web application to build an action plan that focuses on Closing the Achievement Gap. We provided a general overview of the rest of the series which includes root cause analysis to identify the underlying causes for student achievement concerns, and data and systems analysis using resources within the web application. The series ended with a look into the PA Planning Resource Bank to provide you with strategies and resources that you can use throughout your planning process. The focus was on the main components within the web application that support school improvement focused Action Plans.
