Charter public schools are mission driven institutions for learning so they must define and quantify mission success.
How can charter schools develop clear measures and methods of assessment that can stand up to external scrutiny and merit credence in formal judgments of their success?
Making the Mission Matter is the first and only book written specifically to guide charter school leaders through the complex but critical process of defining, establishing and measuring mission-specific educational goals.
We all know standardized test scores are only half the story. As educators focus on the “whole child,” charter authorizers and leaders must focus on the whole school and measure what matters.
This book will help charter school leaders conquer the challenge of developing mission-specific educational goals through easy-to-follow exercises and learn how to translate largely qualitative goals into quantifiable terms supported by quantifiable data.
Making the Mission Matter is THE school leader’s guidebook to successfully develop rigorous educational goals and measures.
