School/Comprehensive Educational Plans (S/CEP): Quality Assurance and Monitoring Progress All schools / Deadline: February 27 Please review the updates below regarding the School Comprehensive Educational Plan (S/CEP) process: Revised Process for Reviewing Progress: You should use this 2014-15 S/CEP Mid-Point Review of School Progress document to guide your School Leadership Team (SLT) in a review of your school’s progress towards meeting your annual goals. Note that: As first noted in the January 6 edition of Principal’s Weekly, you should first download your school’s S/CEP from the iPlan Portal and review it to determine whether the NYCDOE made any updates to your plan. If your school completed the 2014–15 S/CEP, you should not complete Part 6b – Progress Monitoring. Leave Part 6b blank and use the 2014-15 S/CEP Mid-Point Review of School Progress document instead. If your school is a School Improvement Grant (SIG) or School Innovation Fund (SIF) school, you are not required to use the Mid-Point Review of School Progress document; however, you may find it useful to complete the document as you engage in performance management progress reporting. For more information about the process, click here if you are a SIG school or here if your school is a SIF school. During this period, you should work with your SLT to determine if your school reached benchmarks towards meeting the annual goals. If, when reviewing a particular benchmark, you and your SLT determine that your school has not made sufficient progress, you should reach out to your network CEP point and work with your SLT to identify resources and strategies to support your school in meeting the goal by the end of the year. You must then edit each action plan in your S/CEP to reflect the newly-agreed upon strategies before uploading your final S/CEP in the iPlan Portal. Revised Process for Quality Assurance Feedback: If your school completed a CEP, your superintendent and network leader will receive CEP Quality Assurance (QA) feedback about your school’s CEP on January 27. Your network will share the CEP QA feedback with you so that you can work with your SLT to incorporate the feedback. If your school completed an SCEP, you and your SLT should revisit the SCEP QA feedback that you received from your network back in December and use this time to make any additional revisions that were not made in December. The deadline for uploading your revised final plan to the iPlan portal is February 27. By March 5, the NYCDOE will combine your school’s S/CEP with its Language Allocation Policy (LAP), Language Translation and Interpretation (LTI) Plan, and Title III plan (if applicable) and post it on your school’s NYCDOE website. For questions, contact your network CEP point.
