What Are Strategic School profiles?
The Connecticut General Assembly passed Section 10-220(c) of the Connecticut General Statutes, an act concerning the reporting of school and district strategic profile reports, in May 1990. The law provides that:
"...each local and regional board of education shall submit to the commissioner of education a strategic school profile report for each school under its jurisdiction and for the school district as a whole. Each profile report will contain information on measures of student needs, school resources, and student and school performance."
Reports will be available annually on November 1st. The broad areas of the report include:
Student Needs - factors which may place a student at risk educationally
School Resources - those which have been purchased and are available for use in a school
School Performance - school programs and activities which translate resources into outcomes
Student Performance - the results of the instructional process
This report is available to all either through the State Department of Education Website or from the Superintendent's office. The current year profile will be available in March of next year.
