Are there any prerequisites?

To jump into this workshop, we ask that teams complete 'CI 101: Introduction to Continuous Improvement'. We have a lot of flexibility in how this is offered. We can even schedule a time for your team to participate via a one hour webinar.

Pen and a notepad to take notes with.  We will provide you with a copy of the Student Survey Report that most applies to you. Light snacks will be provided.

Purpose of the Adams County Student Survey
The Adams County Student Survey (ACSS) asks about safety and wellness in order to help schools create and sustain safe, respectful, drug-free school environments, and promote positive social skills. The results also help Adams County partners improve services which support youth. The survey has been administered to our 5 partner districts (Adams 12 Five Star Schools, Adams 14, Mapleton Public Schools, School District 27J, and Westminster Public Schools) each of the past ten school years (2008-2017) to students in grades 6 through 12. Beginning in 2015, the ACSS expanded its reach and launched its elementary version, surveying students in grades 3 through 5. Originally, ACYI began providing this service to schools and districts with the aim of filling a significant data void in our region. ACYI’s overall role within the partnership is to guide a shared vision and goals, to support continuous improvement across our partnership and to advance policy and mobilize funding to improve youth outcomes across the six cradle to career outcomes: kindergarten readiness, elementary grade reading, middle grade math, high school graduation, postsecondary enrollment, and postsecondary completion.
