Reviewable forms – How they work: The form is completed by the school or district. The form is saved and submitted for Review. The reviewer (designated by the state) makes suggestions/updates and may or may not approve the form for final submission. Updates, if needed, are made by the school or district. When form has been given the reviewer’s approval, the school or district can submit a final version to the SEA from the dashboard. A form may be sent for review multiple times, if necessary.
School level forms are filled out by each school/leadership team. Once the form has been completed, it may be sent off for review. The state will decide who will review a school form: the district liaison, school consultant, district office, or a state reviewer. Each form may only be connected to one reviewer. Once the form has been reviewed, the reviewer can make comments and decide whether revisions are needed, OR decide that the form is accepted and a final version may be submitted to the state.
District level forms are filled out by each district/leadership team. Once the form has been completed, it may be sent off for review. The state will decide who will review a school form: the district consultant, a state reviewer, or a state administrator. Each form may only be connected to one reviewer. Once the form has been reviewed, the reviewer can make comments and decide whether revisions are needed, OR decide that the form is accepted and a final version may be submitted to the state.
On the Forms to Complete tab, fill out the form and then click “SAVE AND SEND FOR REVIEW” to send for comments.
Once the form has been reviewed and sent back to the school or district, an arrow will appear in the Forms to Complete tab designating that the form has been sent back to with comments. Open the form, scroll to the bottom, look at reviewer comments, and make any suggested updates. Reviewer makes comments and sends form back to school or district Reviewers will have three choices when reviewing a school or district form. After making the appropriate choice, the form will be sent back to the school or district. The school or district should look at the form for suggested updates and further instructions, prior to submitting to the SEA.
Once the form has been approved and all updates are made, the form is submitted to the SEA. Once all updates are made as suggested in the Reviewer comments, the user will go to the Required Reports tab, find the report name, and click the submit button to send a final version to the state. Note: Until a form has been accepted by a reviewer, the SUBMIT button will not appear.
Coaching Critique / State Feedback Coaching Critique enables the coach to address a specific set of questions, set by the state, relative to the leadership team’s progress. State Feedback enables state administrators to address a specific set of questions, set by the state, relative to each leadership team’s progress.
Coaches can access these tools by logging in and choosing a school or district to view. Choose a site to view

The state completes the Feedback form by drilling down to a school or district’s Coaching page, from the state administration page. The state will then complete the Feedback form and submit a copy to the school or district. Once the State Feedback form or the Coach’s Critique has been completed, it can be submitted to the school or district. All levels (state, coaches, districts) will have view-only access of each feedback or critique form once submitted. Each receiver will be notified by email that they have a new feedback or critique form to review.
