Initially conducted on a three-year cycle, subsdquent reviews are determined to occur on a one, three or five-year timeframe.

The Principal provides the review team with a self-assessment of the school's performance based on evidence from the school.  Information to be validated by the review team is considered before and during the school visit.  This forms the basis for the school review report and determines when the next review will occur.  The report is provided to the Principal, the Chair of the School Council/Board and the regional Director of Education.  Click here to download the full document.
