Identify your team members beginning with 1 of the current users named in your school membership form. User accounts must be set up on the main website with the school code. Your team members are given full access to the self-assessment.
Each member of your self-assessment team should represent various members of the school community. Ideally, this would include a school board member, a school leader and a lead teacher with input from other individuals or groups.
The self-assessment is divided into five standards. Each of the standards describes a domain or area of focus for school improvement, and the rationale for including it in the self-assessment process for a Christian school.
Standard 1: Philosophy and Foundations
Standard 2: Leadership and Personnel
Standard 3: Teaching and Learning
Standard 4: Spiritual Formation
Standard 5: Strategic School Improvement Plan
Each of the 5 standards are described here in an overview statement with buttons to view and respond to each indicator within that standard.
The format for completing each indicator provides the indicator at the top with the related descriptors. You must select a stage of growth that best describes your school from the rubric and then you may identify the documents or recent activities from a list of options or you may add your own. This list of evidence is unique for each Indicator and should identify activities from the last 2 years or working documents. Data is then saved for that Indicator in your self-assessment.
After submitting your self-assessment, a report will be generated with recommendations for your consideration. This report will provide a basis for your collaboration with ACSI and our network of schools as we work together to address your needs and provide opportunities to share your strengths with others for mutual growth.
The report you receive, based on your self assessment, will highlight one or two standards as areas that are in need of attention and growth for your school. Select one of these standards to focus on and identify which specific indicators within the standard you wish to address.
