    District comprehensive needs assessment
    District Comprehensive Needs Assessment

    Using the data notebook, as well as any other data you brought with you, including parent evaluation information, you will:

    • identify needs

    • prioritize needs if necessary

    • align needs to Title I PS3111 activities and SPP indicators using the activity worksheets

    • begin delineating costs for district-level vs. campus activities

    Usde guiding questions
    USDE Guiding Questions

    And, check to ensure that the district can answer YESto all five questions posed by the USDE. Will the proposed use of funds:

    1. drive improved results for students, including students in poverty, students with disabilities, and ELLs?

    2. increase educator’s long-term capacityto improve results for students?

    3. advance state, district, or school improvement plans and the reform goals encompassed in ARRA?

    4. avoid recurring coststhat states, school systems, and schools are unprepared to assume when this funding ends?

    5. include approaches to measure and track implementation and results and create feedback loops to modify or discontinue strategies based on evidence? (i.e., foster continuous improvement?)
