CEC Audit 2015 - Overview

Video Podcasts Below

To help us identify areas of strength and opportunities for improvement, District 64 engaged an external organization -- the Consortium for Educational Change (CEC) --  to conduct an audit. This District-level process -- called a “System Overview Assessment” -- allows us to benchmark our District against effective practices of other "high performing" districts. The CEC utilizes a framework built around the Malcolm Baldrige Performance Excellence Program and also embraces the Professional Learning Community model. 

On February 3-5, 2015, a 29-member team from CEC visited to review self-study materials and evidence, and interview stakeholders. The team fanned out to visit all eight schools to interview students, teachers and parents -- almost 1,000 stakeholders in all -- to evaluate how accurate the self-study reflected current practice throughout the District around three key indicators: learning, collaboration, and results.
