Prior to the first day of school:

  • Districts and schools are to provide documents needed for the visit.
  • Schools are prioritized for scheduled visits based on data from previous visits.

During the first four weeks following the student start date:

  • High priority and selected schools will receive a visit.
  • Selected chools with no prior insufficiencies in selected districts will receive a Teacher Questionnaire (TQ).

For a school that is visited within the first four weeks of school:

  • If the school is sufficient, the school and district will receive a letter of sufficiency.
  • If the school has insufficiencies, the school and district will receive a five-day letter of insufficiency and the school will have until the end of the eighth week of school to remediate insufficiencies.

For a school that receives a Teacher Questionnaire (TQ):

  • If the TQ indicates the school is sufficient, the school will be scheduled for a visit later in the academic year.
  • If the TQ indicates the school is insufficient (or an inadequate number of TQs are returned by the end of the fourth week of school), the school and district will receive a TQ letter of insufficiency and the school will be scheduled for a visit as soon as possible.

For a school that is visited with the second month of school and found insufficient:

  • If the school remediates within the first two months of school, the school and district will receive a letter of sufficiency.
  • If the school does not remediate within the first two months of school, the school and district will receive a letter of insufficiency, with a copy sent to the State Superintendent of Public Instruction (SPI).

For a school with a TQ that indicates sufficiency and is visited later than the first two months of school:

  • If the school visit indicates the school is sufficient, the school and district will receive a letter of sufficiency.
  • If the school visit indicates the school is insufficient, the school and district will receive a letter of insufficiency, with a copy sent to the State Superintendent of Public Instruction (SPI).
