Systemic Instructional Review (SIR)

The Systemic Instructional Reviewis a Pre-K to 12 instructional comprehensive assessment (academic and social emotional) of a Local Educational Agency’s (LEA’s) instructional systems, progress on state requirements, and implementation of teaching and learning practices. The review will identify the LEA’s strengths, weaknesses, opportunities, and threats to their instructional systems. In addition, the process and related document(s) such as a Systemic Instructional Review Report are individualized to the needs of the LEA.

As part of the SIR process, the instructional components below are reviewed:
