FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
 
Gresham-Barlow School District awarded organizational assessment grant
 
Assessment team will review district’s performance in seven core components
 
The Gresham-Barlow School District is the recipient of a grant from the Oregon Department of Education to conduct an organizational assessment. The assessment will look at the district’s performance from a systems perspective. The goal is to develop high-performing school districts that support their schools and classrooms in increasing the success of all students.
 
“Organizational assessments are conducted to assist school districts in determining the work we need to do to become a high-performing system,” said Superintendent Jim Schlachter. “We are pleased to participate in this assessment and look forward to learning what we are doing well and where there are opportunities for improvement.”
 
During the assessment, a team of experts will:
Conduct school and classroom visits
Meet with various stakeholders
Gather and analyze district documents
 
The assessment instrument consists of seven inter-related components essential to accomplishing the goal of improved student achievement.  All seven components must be present to bring about meaningful, long-term, systemic school improvement. The seven components are:
Leadership – strong, visionary, results-oriented leadership
Strategic Planning – alignment of action, resources, and results           
Curriculum & Teaching – standards-based curriculum and powerful teaching
Stakeholder Engagement – active engagement of internal and external stakeholders
Stellar People – stellar teachers, board members, leaders, and support staff who are continuously learning and growing
Effective and Efficient Processes – aligned and linked core business processes to support the system
Accountability – employee and student accountability for results
 
At the end of the assessment, the external team will meet with district leaders to share strengths and opportunities for improvement. The results of the assessment will be posted on the district website for staff and community members to review. Krenek Consulting is conducting the assessment.
