About School Improvement

Holding Hands
  • Accreditation
    Cognia, formerly Advanced, system accreditation incorporates a performance-based model that has a five-year cycle. REA facilitates the district accreditation process, which includes a self-evaluation of each school, an organizational evaluation, and an independent external review.

    Customer Survey
    Each year, REA coordinates the BCPS Stakeholder Surveys for parents, students, and staff to gather information regarding school climate, perceptions concerning school improvement, and student achievement.

    School Improvement
    School Improvement (SI) schools are D or F graded public schools identified for support and intervention by the FLDOE. REA works collaboratively with principals to develop goals based on school needs and implement strategies to reduce or eliminate barriers to the goals.

    REA provides technical assistance, editing, budget development, and implementation support for the School Improvement Grant (SIG).

    Parent Advisories
    REA is the liaison to School Advisory Forums, School Advisory Councils, Area Advisory Councils, District Advisory Council, the Superintendent and School Board.

    School Improvement Support
    REA facilitates the completion, implementation, and monitoring of School Improvement Plans through quarterly, interactive professional learning for School Advisory Council chairpersons and administrators.
