Performance Management (PM) is a rigorous, evidence-based, collaborative problem solving process. The process involves frequent PM reviews to help BCPS align and optimize all school district initiatives and services to the three strategic goals of high quality instruction, continuous improvement, and effective communications.
Guided by data and information, divisions, offices, and departments experience several opportunities to engage in open and honest conversations during the PM reviews to evaluate each and every unit’s value-added services.
During the PM reviews, real-time ‘Action Items’ are identified and assigned to responsible parties. The process is interactive and iterative because progress against baseline metrics and assigned Action Items is documented, acted upon, and shared at subsequent PM reviews.
