School-Level Reflection Rubrics

Refer to the School-Level Reflection Rubrics for the Focus Area(s) that you have identified as priorities. These will be helpful in examining what good practices look like and developing ideas for partnership practices and activities as you develop an Action Plan.

The School-Level Reflection Rubrics can also be used to monitor progress in reaching goals, designing professional development for school staff, and conducting a school walk-through. The levels of practice build on each other, assuming that practices in the emerging and professing levels will continue at the next level.
