									Review and Revision

The School Accountability Framework (2002)

documents is the outcome of the review.

Framework.
The Core of School Accountability

What are we seeking to achieve?
    • High standards of academic and non-academic
      student achievement

How well are we doing?
    • Draw conclusions about the standards of student
      achievement

What can we improve?
    • Evidence-based planning for improvement
Policy
1.   Principals are accountable to the Director Schools for the performance of
     their school and teachers are accountable to the principal for the progress
     of their students.
2.   Principals, in collaboration with school staff are required to undertake a
     process of self-assessment that results in judgments about the standards of
     student achievement and the effectiveness of school processes in
     maximising student achievement.
3.   Principals, in collaboration with school staff are required to undertake
     school planning processes that include the development of a School plan,
     operational planning and classroom planning.
4.   Principals, in collaboration with school staff are required to publish annually
     a School Report that describes the school’s performance and report on
     legislative and designated policy and program requirements.
5.   Principals, in collaboration with school staff are required to participate in
     and actively respond to school review processes including Standards
     Reviews and, as required, review conducted by the Expert Review Group.
What Has Changed?

A new role for Directors Schools – less time
reviewing schools, more time supporting,
mentoring and coaching.

Eight outcomes of the School Review
Framework are integrated into a new conceptual
model.
What Has Changed?

Standards Reviews replace existing school
reviews and will focus only on the standards of
student achievement — academic and
non-academic.

The Expert Review Group (ERG) has been
established to conduct external reviews of
schools.
