News and Tips

Now is the time to look at the VTA Process and your calendar as a committee and see what needs to be planned in order to successfully complete the remainder of the SIP work for the year.

MARCH: PAIs and SMART Goals
After attending the webinar on March 1 or viewing the archived webinar, the Achievement Data will be carefully analyzed in order to select PAIs for your school. Once the PAIs are submitted and meet criteria, then SMART goals will be selected.

As you can see, the March steps cannot be successfully completed without the Achievement Data report. Make sure the Achievement Data steps in section 2. Collect Data on the VTA Process have met criteria.

April and May will go very quickly; school calendars get filled with year-end activities. Be sure to set up a Steering Team work schedule in order to get items for the SIP done in a timely manner. The VTA Process calendar is set up in order for schools to finish by June 15; please plan accordingly.
