  1. Conducting a Comprehensive Needs Assessment John Purcell School Improvement Specialist Melissa Blossom Assistant Director of School Improvement @EducateIN

  2. CNA-SIP Resources Available on Padlet: https://tinyurl.com/ycj725xe @EducateIN

  3. CNA/SIP Roadshow Objectives • Locate your school’s federal report card, Moodle Course, CNA-SIPtemplate, and additional resources. • Identify the benefits of a unified approach to school improvement vs. random acts of school improvement. • Utilize the state’s template and resources to conduct a Comprehensive Needs Assessment. • Understand how to apply aroot cause analysis to identify the deepest underlying causes of school-specific challenges. @EducateIN

  4. Federal Report Card Overall federal grade Subgroup grade with TSI designation CSI and TSI Lists www.doe.in.gov/sig @EducateIN

  5. Comprehensive Support & Improvement (CSI) Title I served F’s or the lowest performing 5% of all Title I schools High school (Title I or non-Title I) with a graduation rate less than 67% Title I schools with an underperforming subgroup at the same level as the lowest 5% schools for 5 consecutive years • School develops a Comprehensive Needs Assessment (CNA) and School Improvement Plan (SIP) using the state’s template. • School administers a culture and climate survey. A survey will be provided by the state at no cost. • The state will provide technical assistance to support the design and implementation of effective school improvement plans. Exit Criteria: Attain a grade of C on the federal accountability model for 2 or more consecutive years; demonstrate a strong plan for sustaining progress. @EducateIN

  6. Targeted Support & Improvement (TSI) Schools (both Title I and non-Title I) with one or more subgroups at or below the lowest performing 5% threshold used to identify CSI schools. • School develops a comprehensive needs assessment (CNA) and school improvement plan (SIP) focused on meeting the needs of students in the identified subgroup(s). • The state will provide technical assistance to support the design and implementation of effective school improvement plans. Exit Criteria: Attain a grade of C for 2 consecutive years within 5 years on the federal accountability system for the identified subgroup(s); demonstrate a strong plan for sustaining progress. @EducateIN

  9. Unified Approach to a CNA/SIP School Improvement Plan Creates focus, intentionality, and aligns resources and efforts towards the areas identified most in need of improvement by the CNA. Comprehensive Needs Assessment Provides a framework for analyzing school data and performing root cause analysis to identify areas in which improvement is most critical. @EducateIN

  12. Comprehensive Needs Assessment Establish a Comprehensive Needs Assessment Planning Team Develop a Vision of Excellence Create a School Profile • 2 • 3 • 1 Collect Additional Data on Focus Areas Identify Focus Areas Analyze Data to Determine Key Findings and Root Causes • 4 • 5 • 6 @EducateIN

  13. CNA Phase 1: Establish A Team • Diversity of stakeholders/experiences • Supplemented with committees with a domain of study (TSI) • Establish a meeting schedule -Agenda -Minutes -Meeting norms -Strategies for active participation • Principal • Teachers • Professional staff • Family members • Community members • Students @EducateIN

  16. CNA Phase 4: Focus Areas • Compare and contrast the following to identify gaps between the school’s vision of excellence and current state: -Vision of Excellence (aspirations) -School Profile (current state) • Identify up to three (3) focus areas • TSI subgroups must be focus areas • May choose to identify additional focus areas • TSI subgroups = focus areas • May choose additional focus areas @EducateIN

  17. CNA Phase 5: Collect Additional Data • Gather and organize data for all focus areas • Identify focus area(s) for further study • Consider collecting additional data • TSI subgroups must be focus areas • May choose to identify additional focus areas • Qualitative: formative/summative assessment, SIS, and Compass • Quantitative: Classroom observations, surveys, interviews, or focus groups @EducateIN

  18. CNA Phase 6: Data Analysis/Root Causes • Analyze data using a well-sequenced process • Conduct a root cause analysis *Five Whys *Fishbone • TSI subgroups must be focus areas • May choose to identify additional focus areas • Conduct a data quality review • Revisit/refine focus areas to investigate • Analyze data in a triangulated manner • Identify key findings and root causes @EducateIN

  19. Phase 6 Continued: “Five Why’s” Root Cause Analysis Why? Data shows that …. Why? Why? If the last answer is something you cannot control, go back to the previous response. Why? Why? @EducateIN
