Annotation: This chart for policymakers, educators, and advocates presents a framework for evaluating how well states, districts, and schools address areas critical to student success. The chart is designed similarly to a logic model allowing states and districts to visualize the resources, policies, and practices fundamental to achieving student success. Contents include seven criteria representing general areas deemed critical to the success of public schools and students (school readiness, standards and curriculum, conditions of teaching and learning, work force quality, accountability and assessments, family and community engagement, and school funding). Subcriteria (outcomes integral to closing opportunity and achievement gaps and preparing students with skills) are followed by the indicators that determine the extent to which states, districts, and schools address the criteria. Indicators are grouped by resources, policies and practices, and outputs.
