RMC Research is conducting instructional audits of three schools that have qualified for an extension of their turnaround status by the Utah State Board of Education. The purpose of the audits is to determine the alignment of each school’s curriculum and classroom practices to Utah Standards, provide recommended actions to remedy issues identified, and recommend revisions to the school turnaround. The audits include an analysis of the prior 3 years’ performance data and an on-site visit during which observations are conducted in each classroom and interviews and focus groups are conducted with school leaders, teachers, instructional and non-instructional support staff, students, parents, and district leaders. Reports will include information about strengths and areas of improvement identified during the audit process and recommendations to strengthen each school’s improvement efforts.
