2011-12 School Quality Review Process


All newly identified Improvement (year 1)  Basic schools  will be participating in the School Quality Review (SQR) process by completing a self-assessment using the Quality Indicators (QI) document. The Basic SQRs are a district responsibility and District Superintendents will check to ensure that these are completed.

Schools newly identified as Improvement (year 1) Focused or Comprehensive will also be participating in the School Quality Review (SQR) process that includes an on-site visit by the SQR Team. The SQRs for these schools will be led by  District Superintendents in Title I schools outside the Big 5 and by SED School Improvement  Liaisons in the Big Five and in non-Title I schools. For additional information, please contact the School Improvement Team at 518-474-5923, or e-mail Albanysit@mail.nysed.gov .
