Job Title: School Quality Director

Job Description:

The Quality Review (QR) is a process that evaluates how well schools are organized to support student learning and teacher practice. It was developed to assist New York City Department of Education (NYCDOE) schools in raising student achievement by looking behind a school’s performance statistics to ensure that the school sis engaged in effective methods of accelerating student learning. The QR is a two-day school visit during which reviewers talk with parents, students, teachers, and school leaders, visit classrooms, and use the Quality Review Rubric to evaluate how well the school is organized to support student achievement.

After the school visit, the school receives a Quality Review Report that is also published on its NYCDOE webpage. The Quality Review Report rates 10 indicators of the Quality Review Rubric and includes narrative information on six indicators. The report provides the school community with evidence-based information about the school's development and serves as a source of feedback for school leaders to improve the school's support for students.
