Fiscal Year 2020 → Question 1
The Office of School Support and Improvement (OSSI) identified multiple opportunities to check in with schools as well as other offices. Current efforts to solicit feedback are either in development or occur on an ongoing basis through existing structures.
OSSI engages in continuous improvement by re-examining our processes, procedures, and support during OSSI PLC and bi-weekly area associate superintendents’ school support team meetings that include the area associate superintendent, directors, and instructional specialists. We also value the important connections with our partners. Most recently, leadership from the Department of Special Education K-12 Programs and Services and OSSI met and re-examined the shared agreements regarding the reorganization created during the summer and made adjustments for the remainder of the school year. We used feedback from our principals to collaboratively address how to better serve our schools with special education topics/issues/needs in a timely manner.
