The Performance Indicator Report has its origins in Avoca’s 2007 Strategic Plan. At that time, we were using Jim Collins’ book Good to Great as our strategic plan framework. The original printing of Good to Great didn’t address municipalities, but a few years later Collins wrote Good to Great and the Social Sectors, a monograph to accompany Good to Great, to address that void.
In Good to Great and the Social Sectors, it was reported that the Cleveland Orchestra used the following three goals as measures of organizational success:
- Superior performance
- Distinctive Impact, and
- Lasting Endurance
Borrowing from that model, Avoca has used the following tools listed below as some of our measures of performance since 2007. The links below will take you to the 2016-2017 reports that were shared with the Board of Education at the September BOE meeting. I hope you enjoy celebrating these accomplishments with us:
- Awards and Recognition (Superior Performance)
- Student Connectedness (Distinctive Impact)
- Distinctive Impact Report (Distinctive Impact)
- Student Academic Achievement (Superior Performance)
Though our current strategic plan uses the Baldrige Educational Excellence and Professional Learning Communities criteria as its framework, these performance indicators are still representative measures of how we perform as a district.
