School and District Improvement (SDI) Review
SDI uses several processes to examine a
districts's and/or school’s level of implementation in each of the five
systems of Georgia’s Systems of Continuous Improvement (GSCI):
1. Coherent Instruction
2. Effective Leadership
3. Professional Capacity
4. Family and Community Engagement
5. Supportive Learning Environment
Each of these processes is designed to be implemented by a
team from SDI and/or RESA or by a district or school as a self-assessment
tool. SDI provides technical assistance for
a district and/or school to implement each of these review processes, and if
capacity allows, provides an external team to implement the review
processes. Contact the appropriate SDI Area Program Assessment Specialist (APAS) for assistance and information.
Georgia School Assessment of Performance on Systems (GSAPS)
The purpose of the GSAPS review
process is to provide detailed information for a school on its progress toward
full implementation of all five systems of the GSCI by conducting
an in-depth examination of a school’s data to determine areas of opportunity
and support and to guide the school’s improvement plan.

Georgia District Review Process (GDRP)
The purpose of the GDRP is to determine areas of focus and support for a district
to improve student achievement by conducting an in-depth examination of
a district’s data to determine areas of opportunity and support and to guide
the district’s improvement plan.
This process is currently undergoing
field-testing. Resources and tools will
be made available once the field-testing and any necessary revisions are
Instructional Awareness Walks (IAW)
The purpose of the Instructional Awareness Walks process is to support a school in the process of establishing and sustaining effective Coherent Instructional and Supportive Learning Environment Systems by providing a framework and tools to implement classroom observations.
