The School Accountability and Improvement Framework (the Framework) provides a key resource to support Victorian government schools and their communities identify and implement a shared vision for improvement. Each element of the Framework is linked to provide a coherent and streamlined means for schools to: understand their performance (self-evaluation and review) identify their vision and purpose and set goals and targets for improvement (school strategic plan) put into operation their improvement plans and manage resources (annual implementation plan) report on their performance (annual report to the school community).
The Framework builds on the relationships that exist within each school: those with the school council as the governing body, school staff and parents and the broader community in which the school is located. Shared responsibility, partnerships and transparency are seen as key principles within the Framework in supporting quality student outcomes.
