Pitfalls

  • Relying on inaccurate or incomplete data
  • Failing to organize data into issues that are prioritized and addressed
  • Underusing the site management team as a source of information and insight into community conditions and school-site operation
  • Delaying the release of information on progress until "hard data" on test scores are available
  • Overlooking positive trends and the cumulative impact of small improvements
  • Neglecting routine scans of system functional areas to indicate where work needs to be strengthened
