The Valley View ISD conducts a Comprehensive Needs Assessment each school year. District strengths and weaknesses are identified yearly from data pertaining to the following eight areas::
B. Student Achievement
C. School Culture and Climate
D. Staff Quality, Recruitment, and Retention
E. Curriculum, Instruction, and Assessment
F. Family and Community Involvement
G. School Context and Organization
A committee comprised of Central Office staff, campus representatives, and parents is convened to examine each of the areas listed above. The committee analyzes and discusses data and then makes a list of needs for each area. The committee then summarizes the needs for report purposes for the district improvement planning committee. The identified needs for each of the eight sections appear at the end of the specified section. The specific identified needs are then addressed by the strategies listed in the District Improvement Plan.
