Indistar® is a web-based system implemented by a state education agency, district, or charter school organization for use with district and/or school improvement teams to inform, coach, sustain, track, and report improvement ac-tivities.
Similar to a global positioning system (GPS), Indistar® tells you where you are and helps you get to where you want to be — every child learning and every school improving. Indistar® is stocked with indicators of evidence-based practices at the district, school, and classroom levels to improve student learning. But Indistar® is also customizable, so that the client (SEA, LEA, or charter organization) can populate or enhance the system with its own indicators of effective practice. The system also accommodates rubrics for assessment of the indicators.
Parents may log onto Indistar to view the School Improvement of Lee High School. The following is a list of the reports that Parents may view:
