Creating a performance-driven system
Abstract: The New York City public school system is in the process of creating the nation's first performance-driven system. Such a system promotes competition, maintains quality, and emphasizes a consistently high level of achievement. The goal of a performance-driven system is to set clear standards and to align resources, policies, and practices with the support that students need to hit the target. The following management principles are used at all levels of the organization: define clear standards, articulate educational strategies designed to enable all students to meet the standards, align all resources, policies, and practices to carry out strategies, track results, and use the data to drive continuous improvement and to hold the entire system accountable for school performance. Sources of value in the system includes standards, the arts, technology, uniforms, and a longer day and a longer year.
