District Improvement Audits
Client: New York State Education Department
Since 2005–2006, Learning Point Associates has worked with 30 districts across New York state that have failed to meet academic standards to create customized plans for improving their performance. The basis of each improvement plan is our comprehensive audits of the written, taught and tested English language arts and mathematics curricula in the districts' schools.
Staff employed a variety of data collection methods to reveal a complete picture of what is being taught, how it is being taught, and where it matches state curriculum standards. An alignment study of each district's written curriculum was conducted against the state content standards. (Learn more about our curriculum audit process.)
The audit process concluded with a final report to the New York State Education Department and the districts that included detailed recommendation. Each district is responsible for creating an improvement plan detailing how it will respond to the recommendations and is held accountable by the New York State Education Department for implementing the recommendations during the next three years. In many districts, Learning Point Associates facilitated that planning process, helping districts create measurable plans.
In total, our audits have reached more than 630,000 students in kindergarten through Grade 12 in urban, suburban, and rural school districts in New York City, Long Island, and the greater New York metropolitan area, as well as upstate New York.
