Strategic plans turns goals into action
The Report Card for Student Success is the strategic plan for the Peel board, based on a proven, research-based methodology. Its power is in using data to transform our strategic plan into action. It demonstrates the cause-and-effect relationship between our actions and what we're trying to achieve. It helps us answer the question--is what we are doing having a direct impact on what we are trying to achieve? The Report Card for Student Success shows us whether our actions are having an impact, because each goal clearly sets out targets for improvement.
