What to Expect

These are the steps in the school planning process:

  1. Review data about your school and students and reflect on how your school is doing to support students to succeed. Examples of information you can review include:
    • Academic assessments, such as SBAC/CAASPP, Fountas & Pinnell, CELDT, writing assessments, and FEP reclassification data
    • Attendance, out-of-class referrals and suspension data
    • Student and family school climate surveys
  2. Based on that data, set goals and identify priorities for the next school year. What are the programs, services, and other resources your school wants to focus on to reach these goals?
  3. Beginning the week of Feb. 22, look at how the draft school budget can best support these goals and priorities.


Interpretation will be coordinated through your school team. Please communicate with your principal to request interpretation in advance.
