School Improvement Hierarchy

The School Improvement Hierarchy provides a model to guide what needs to happen next in a school's improvement journey. It incorporates the nine domains of the National School Improvement Tool.

The hierarchy is a tool that provides a common language for conversation in school communities. It acts as a lens to determine a school's current position in its improvement journey.

Key elements of school improvement have prerequisites, depending on the context, commitment and capacity of the school community. For example, substantial progress in Differentiated Teaching and Learning hinges on building shared understandings, establishing consistent practices and demonstrating success in Analysis and Discussion of Data.
