RMC Research is conducting diagnostic reviews of seven Aurora Public Schools (CO), including two charter schools, to help pinpoint areas of instructional and organizational strengths and concerns and to support the development of a focused, high-leveraged approach to improvement. The reviews are based on the 2015 Colorado Standards and Indicators for Continuous School Improvement School Level Standards and Indicators. These standards and indicators outline the elements found in the research to be associated with student success in elementary, middle, and high schools and may be found at http://www.cde.state.co.us/fedprograms/diagnosticreviewandplanninggrant. The reviews include focus groups, interviews, and classroom observations, and are designed to inform revision of the schools’ Unified Improvement Plans. and are designed to inform revision of the schools’ Unified Improvement Plans.
