The purpose of the Data-driven Decision Making Companion Guide is to assist local educational agencies (LEAs) understand the school improvement planning process as the driver for continuous improvement. A critical component of the school improvement planning process is writing a school improvement plan (SIP) that is data-driven. A thoughtful and well-written SIP communicates specific, intentional actions to reach a desired outcome. Data-driven decision making refers to a school's ongoing process of collecting and analyzing multiple sources of formative and summative data to guide decisions toward improvement of the educational process. DDDM involves making decisions that are supported by data rather than making decisions that are intuitive or based on observation alone.
The School Leadership Team Review Process Guide provides a school with detailed information on how to establish a strong leadership team to fully implement the Effective Leadership System and supporting structures within Georgia’s Systems of Continuous Improvement (GSCI). The school will be able to evaluate the current practices of their leadership team by completing a self-assessment using the High Impact Practices Implementation Rubric. Following the self-assessment, the leadership team will discuss the progression needed to move the team to exemplary status and identify targeted actions for improvement. The Leadership Team Review Process Guide provides resources and exemplars to assist schools in improving leadership team evidenced-based practices to support the continuous improvement cycle.
