The Office of School Performance and Accountability is dedicated to fostering leadership, staff, and students to reach their highest potential. Schools are grouped into 15 instructional cadres to facilitate school improvement and curricular innovation, as well as support the diversity of Broward County. In collaboration with other departments, there is a continued focus on the following for all schools:
- An expert level data-driven culture of collaborative problem-solving, lesson planning, and creation of high yield instructional strategies in every assessed area
- An effective level method for analyzing academic deficiencies, student by student, via the RtI process in every assessed area
- A strong relationship with community members (student/adult & internal/external) to promote the highest possible degree of dedication to the leadership and school
- A constructive relationship among the highest performing schools in their SES band to scale-up BEST practices
Additionally, the Office of Service Quality, the school operations unit of the division, provides support and assistance to parents and communities, as well as school staff by linking them to available resources, providing accurate information and resolving concerns in a caring, helpful and professional manner. This support includes field trips, parent and stakeholder concerns, school leasing opportunities, school communications, district policy advisement and revisions, PTA/ PTO and District Advisory, and many other school related needs. This office works cooperatively with parent organizations and community groups to foster an understanding of available school programs and services while maintaining and enhancing communication between schools and community stakeholders. A positive interaction not only provides a good first impression but can also lead to a good working relationship between the school and the home.
