The last in our series examining the five, “Framing Questions for Decision Making” in using ARRA funds for school reform and improvement.
5. Foster continuous improvement? Will the proposed use of funds include approaches to measure and track implementation and results and create feedback loops to modify or discontinue strategies based on evidence?
YES. The CLM contains an Implementation Accountability Process (IAP) to assure that everyone on the ‘Site Team’ knows what is happening in a given setting and who’s responsible for the tasks. This allows persons to measure and track implementation and results. Everyone knows exactly what their priorities are when putting the CLM in place.
