  • Deepen school leaders' understanding of the school performance framework.
  • Facilitate the goal-setting process for students in the upcoming school year.
  • Help set district-wide outcome targets for student achievement and school culture.
  • Assist leaders in assessing personnel needs and allocations to best align budgets with student needs.
