The Student-Centered Accountability Program seeks to promote and implement an accountability system that is timely, meaningful, considers the whole child and engages community stakeholders in a continuous cycle of improvement and innovation supported by a network of peers.
S-CAP was established in 2015 to develop and maintain a cross-district collaborative approach to accountability and improvement. The S-CAP approach is timely, meaningful, considers the whole child and engages community stake holders in a continuous cycle of improvement and innovation supported by a network of peers.
Comprehensive Student Success
S-CAP emphasizes every student and the whole student including their academic competence, thinking processes and dispositions towards learning. In addition to state assessment results S-CAP considers local assessments, classroom assessment and measures of student engagement, mindsets and post-secondary readiness to provide more meaningful and comprehensive data to describe student success.
S-CAP believes evaluating the capacity of the systems that support student success is an essential function of accountability. S-CAP uses System Support Reviews, collaborative, peer reviews with diverse sources of evidence to provide feedback to districts about their system components that support student success.
S-CAP districts use data related to their comprehensive student success, feedback and evaluation from system support reviews, engage with their local school boards, establish/update district strategic priorities, monitor performance and ensure the district continuously improves its capacity to support student success.
