Parnell District School Annual Plan
Each year the school develops specific plans based on the Board’s Strategic Plan and Charter.
This sets out the plans and goals for the year and is reported against at Board meetings during the year.
Targets for Achievement
The core business of the school is to raise student achievement. At the start of each school year the the Board, in consultation with the staff, set targets for achievement based on the National Standard results collected in the prior year.
These targets can be found in the Annual Plan section of the school Charter and describe the school’s priority learning areas and expectations for improved student outcomes.
Analysis of Variance
In order to be able to analyze progress towards school achievement targets, the school collects assessment data and evidence on student outcomes and reports these in relation to the targets set. The analysis of variance is a form of self-review in that the school evaluates the year’s work and school based initiatives in terms of their effectiveness.It can also inform the Annual Plan and new targets.
