What do you know already about program reviews?

Program Review

A systematic method of analyzing components of an instructional program, including instructional practices, aligned and enacted curriculum, student work samples, formative and summative assessments, professional development and support services, and administrative supports and monitoring.

KRS 158.6453 (1)(i)

Senate Bill 1 (March 2009)

Program Reviews for 3 areas

  • Arts & Humanities

  • Writing

  • Practical Living/Career Studies

Program Reviews . . .

  • provide a tool for on-going discussion and reflection

  • lead to on-going improvement in the program

  • lead to student success in the program

Program Review Document

Let’s glance through sample pages of the Writing Program Review early draft.


  • Curriculum & Instruction

  • Formative & Summative Assessments

  • Professional Development & Support Services

  • Administrative/Leadership Support & Monitoring


  • Standards – 4 as defined by Senate Bill 1

  • Demonstrators – statements that describe what is happening in a school considered to be fully functioning

  • Fully Functioning Characteristics – for a demonstrator, specific occurrences in a school considered to be performing at high levels

  • Examples of Evidence – schools may use to support decisions

Sample Questions for Pilot Schools

  • Is this doable?

  • Do PR allow for diversity between schools?

  • Do PR encourage innovation?

  • Are the characteristics measureable?

Revisions after the Pilot Process

  • Decreased size

  • Less repetition, redundancy

  • Clearer characteristics

  • More evidence listed

The Review Process

Program Review Process

  • Compose team

  • Using analytic method to determine Level of Implementation at the characteristic and demonstrator levels

  • Identify evidence

  • Determine Performance Rating at the standard and program levels

Program Review Process

  • Teams use their professional judgment

Program Review Process

Not This

But This

Program reviews

Purpose of the Program Review

  • To inform the school’s program in order to develop a process of on-going improvement and growth

  • Schools develop a plan for improvement and may include in School’s Comprehensive Improvement Plan

But This

We asked pilot schools. . .
