  • “A great fuss was made about the adoption of the national models, but (we) have done very little to tell how effective they are.” (administrator)

  • “What national models are working?” (board member)

  • “I don’t know in the four years I’ve been here of a program being eliminated.” (principal)

  • “We don’t have what we need to see if the programs are successful.” (administrator)

  • “We’ve been so busy putting programs in place that we didn’t take time to evaluate them.” (administrator)

  • “I can’t remember very many things...that have been done away with because of program evaluation.” (administrator)

  • “There doesn’t appear to be a mechanism to determine, if a model is not working, how to get rid of it.” (parent)

In summary, board policies offer limited direction for gathering and analysis of assessment data for curriculum management and decision-making in the Clover Park School District. No comprehensive, ongoing plan for use of data in decision-making at all levels of the organization was presented for auditors’ review. Various types of assessment data exist, although they are inadequate in scope and quality for decision-making purposes (see Findings 4.1 and 4.2). Auditors were not provided with information supporting the effective use of data for decision-making. Therefore, auditors found the assessment plan inadequate to provide direction and the use of assessment data ineffective for curriculum management and decision-making across the Clover Park School District.
