Academic Accountability System
LifeWorks Schools strongly embraces the nation’s on-going commitment to academic accountability and fully supports each school district’s ambitious goals to raise student achievement and prepare every learner for post-secondary opportunities.
The primary goal of the “Best in Class” Academic Accountability System is to measure and report on the academic achievement of the students enrolled in each one of our highly specialized programs.
In order to gain an objective, rigorous baseline of each school’s services as they relate to student achievement and curriculum, we conduct internal reviews that strengthen the Educational Strategic Planning Process. The internal educational services review allows each school to evaluate its strengths/weaknesses and to author an annual School Improvement Plan (SIP) focusing on industry standards, best practices and future needs.
This dedicated effort to Educational Performance Improvement focuses us to meet the needs of our communities, ensures compliance with regulatory agencies and positions LifeWorks ahead of our competitors. The Academic Accountability System looks at 12 standards and over 50 indicators for each program annually. One of the standards is the monthly report which each school collects and reports data across 21 domains for over 40 indicators. The data from the monthly and annual reports are used to develop strategic plans for education services.
GOALS OF OUR EDUCATIONAL PLAN
- Increase academic achievement for ALL students in a secure environment.
- Provide a scientific, evidence-based curriculum and remediation intervention plan to improve academic, behavioral and career outcomes.
- Implement a well-organized set of operating policies and procedures that are in-line with the educational industry and accreditation standards.
- Coordinate multi-agency/family collaboration to ensure a successful transition back to the
student’s traditional school, post-secondary education or the working world.
