To monitor the quality and development of our Programs and to provide transparency and clarity, the Opportunity Network conducts a series of annual qualitative and quantitative evaluations. Below are descriptions and links to all available reports for the ’17-18 school year.
Operational Mid-Year Evaluations
Operational Mid-Year Evaluations are formal observations during which a review team focuses primarily on the operational aspects of a program for the following domains: Vision for Learning; Family & Community Relationships; School Safety; Positive Environment, High Quality Instruction; Talent Development; and Data. The domains are aligned to the School District’s evidence-based High Performing School Practices and the Essential Features of Alternative Education Programs, as well as the Pennsylvania Department of Education’s Leadership Framework. Each domain includes three to seven components that are rated according to three performance levels: (1) Failing, (2) Needs Improvement, and, (3) Proficient.
Instructional Visit Summaries
Instructional Visit Summaries are formal observations held during the Spring, in which a review team focuses primarily on the instructional aspects of a program for the following components: Academic Success Questions with Leadership; Academic Success Questions with Teachers; Academic Success Questions with Students; and Classroom Observations.
Operational Mid-Year Evaluations and Instructional Visit Summaries are used to collect qualitative data, which gives us a sense of the students’ experience at the program and help us develop a sense of each individual program’s quality, as well as the quality of all programs/schools across the Network.
Alternative Education Progress Reports
The Alternative Education Progress Report (AEPR) is an innovative tool designed to provide a high-level overview of how our alternative programs are performing. The AEPR reflects our core belief that all students deserve to attend great schools and that we must hold ourselves to a standard of equitable educational excellence. The AEPR enables us to both see whether we are meeting this standard, and to track progress and growth of students against the District’s anchor goals (outlined in Action Plan).
