School Board of the City of Virginia Beach
School Improvement Process
The goals of School Improvement Process in Virginia Beach City Public Schools are:
The School Improvement Process shall be implemented in the schools through activities of a School Planning Council, a Principal’s Advisory Committee, and specific Action Teams. These bodies are integral in the development and implementation of the schools’ Plans for Continuous Improvement.
The Superintendent shall establish guidelines for the operation of the School Planning Council and the Principal's Advisory Committee.
The Department of Planning, Innovation and Accountability will be responsible for annually surveying School Planning Council members, Principal's Advisory Committee members, and randomly-selected individuals who are actively involved in the school, but non-members of the School Planning Council or Principal's Advisory Committee, to assist in evaluating site-based management in the school division. Based upon survey results, the Department of Planning, Innovation and Accountability will prepare an annual report to be provided to the School Board.
The school staff and community representatives shall review biennially the extent to which the school has met its goals and objectives, to analyze the school's student performance data including data by grade or academic department as necessary, for the purpose of reporting these outcomes to the school community. The report may be delivered in writing or orally at a regularly scheduled parent-teacher meeting or other publicized public meeting or forum.
