Accessible

Any school with an interest in growth will have access to the tools and support necessary to begin their strengthening plan.

School-led

Schools will choose the elements and pace of their strengthening plan based on their evaluation results.

PaSS Process
1 School Selection & Expectations
  • Interested schools begin a two-step application process that provides the base of their Profile. If accepted, the school leaders will participate in orientation modules to ensure clear understanding and commitment for what is to come.
2 Survey Tool - Evaluation
  • Once a school has completed their orientation, they begin the survey. It asks yes/no questions about all the essential particulars to an excellent education, and it is organized by neighborhood, the key people groups within a school community. Each survey automatically advances through different levels and complexities based on a school´s response, ensuring a deep analysis of any school, no matter their level of development, without overwhelming the participants.
3 School Results - Analysis of School & Development of SSP
  • Next, a report is provided to school leaders that demonstrates the score in each of the neighborhoods independently. Leaders are invited to complete a second phase of data collection in their highest scoring neighborhoods. This allows celebration of a school´s strengths and keeps their achievements and abilities at the forefront.
  • Then they decide with their leadership team which neighborhood should be the focus for their School Strengthening Plan.
  • Any and all training and progress is unique to each school and their self-determined goals.
4 Training - Modules to advance their unique SSP
  • School leaders and staff are then trained through online resources and learning cohorts to gain the skills needed to progress along their unique plan. They are also re-evaluated periodically to measure their growth against their unique plan.
5 Schools of Influence - Cycles of Growth
  • These are schools that demonstrate continuous growth and achievement of excellence in all particulars. PaSS aims to connect these schools and encourage them to invest their success in their local community and other schools in the PaSS program.
