State Level High School Improvement Checklist:
Below are some of the areas to consider when assessing where your state may be in terms of the elements of using existing support and guidance mechanisms and reconfiguring and/or creating new structures to leverage system change for high school improvement. These elements may be of help in supporting your thinking about establishing or refining your state’s education planning and implementation process.
Wisconsin Statewide system of support:
Wisconsin's Statewide System of Support (SSOS) is targeted at providing technical assistance to districts with Title I schools identified for improvement (SIFI), Title I schools that have missed Adequate Yearly Progress (AYP), and other Title I high priority schools. Rather than providing prescriptive measures for district improvement, SSOS processes and tools are designed to enhance a district's ability to improve the effectiveness of its programs and strategies for providing support to low-performing schools. The system also includes tools and strategies to build capacity at the local level for district-focused school improvement.
