School improvement in Pasco County is influenced by three processes that are either mandated by Florida Statute or entered into voluntarily by the actions of schools and the District School Board of Pasco County’s policies and initiatives.
The first is the AdvancED Southern Association of Colleges and Schools Council on Accreditation and School Improvement (SACS CASI) standards-based accreditation process utilizing the Next Generation of School Improvement Process.
The second is Florida’s System for High Quality Schools, as required by Florida statute, which requires, among other things, the formation and meaningful involvement in school improvement decision-making by duly elected School Advisory Councils in all schools.
The third is the District School Board of Pasco County’s process for developing annual school improvement plans.
Functioning in the current environment will require schools in Pasco County to have a system of planning, implementing, and monitoring of all three school improvement processes through data-based decision-making and cooperative school planning.
