MDE has negotiated with Advanc-ED to continue for one more year (2017/18) the ASSIST platform. However, most compliance reports have become optional, knowing best practice is to make the best use of the school improvement process using your own templates or continuing to use those in ASSIST. The key is to make the process practical for your school and district. The Home page provides the general requirements for three different situations: Priority schools, Advanc-ED external review, or the most common option for both Advanc-ED and MDE accredited schools pictured below. In addition, slides for the SI Update at OAISD on 10/16 are located here.
