3rd Quarter 2018 - Quarterly KPI Progress Report

posted Nov 15, 2018, 2:10 PM by Lisa Griffin

The September 2018 quarterly Key Performance Indicators (KPI) report - a tool to help stakeholders better understand how Stargate is performing relative to the school's strategic plan and its KPIs - is posted below.
The document can also be found in Forms and Files, in the KPI folder.

The report will be updated quarterly by the School Accountability Committee. If you have any questions, please contact accountability@stargateschool.org.

About Stargate's Key Performance Indicators:

Key performance indicators (KPIs) are measurable values that demonstrate how the school is performing. These values are represented in five categories that align with the Governance Board’s Strategic Plan. Defined goals and measures that are outlined in the school’s Unified Improvement Plan are also included so that progress toward those goals can be more effectively evaluated and tracked. Stargate School’s KPIs are formulated and monitored by the School Accountability Committee. As data from various sources is collected and analyzed and historical trends are established, changes may be made to the scoring process. New indicators will also be included as new data becomes available. KPIs will be updated on a quarterly basis and will be made available to the Stargate community after data is finalized and approved.

The KPIs will highlight areas of strength, as well as reveal areas that require continued attention and goal-oriented strategies. The KPIs will be utilized by the Board in the preparation of each year’s Strategic Plan, as well as in their day-to-day decision making as they strive to fulfill the school’s mission.
