The Purpose of the Program Review Process To provide for careful and systematic analysis of current programs and help identify the next steps that will make the most impact on student learning. To inform the schools programs in order to establish a process of on-going discussion, reflection and growth. To provide a basis for developing a plan for improvement which may become a component in the Comprehensive School Improvement Plan.
Goals of Program Reviews To improve the quality of teaching and learning for all students in all programs To allow equal access to all students to the skills that will assist them in being productive citizens To allow students to demonstrate their understanding beyond a paper-and-pencil test To ensure a school wide natural integration of the program skills across all contents, beyond the program areas
