Identify Root Causes
A 5 Step Process
Every school improvement plan must address the following areas of student success:
At least 54% of all students will be proficientin Reading, as measured by the annual state-wide PSSA assessments.
At least 45% of all students will be proficientin Mathematics, as measured by the annual state-wide PSSA assessments.
3. STUDENT PARTICIPATION IN STATE ASSESSMENTS
At least 95% of eligible students will participate in required state-wide assessments.
4. STUDENT ATTENDANCE
Student attendance in school will improve continuously (to an average of at least 90% by 2014).
5. FOUR-YEAR GRADUATION RATE (high schools only)
The 4-year graduation rate for high school students will increase consistently (to at least 80% by 2014).
* If your school has already met these targets for all students and student groups, consider setting your own challenging, ‘stretch’ targets that will ensure continuous improvement of instructional practices and student achievement.

Introduction & Exercises
A Root Cause is the deepest underlying cause or causes of positive or negative symptoms within any process, which if removed, would result in elimination, or substantial reduction, of the symptom.
Root Cause Analysis:
• helps to eliminate the problem, not just the symptom
• conserves scarce resources
• promotes discussion and reflection
• provides rationale for strategy selection
Will correcting or eliminating this root cause result in success?
If yes, then it is a root cause.
If no, then it is a contributing factor.
Your water bill is extremely high!
Possible Root Causes:

staff accountability for performance
others identified by the school
student readiness to learn
others identified by the school
