Using Logic Modeling for Statewide School Improvement Efforts Training

This REL Southwest project built the capacity of the Southwest School Improvement Research Partnership to develop and use logic models to conceptualize school improvement initiatives in a way that will enhance the state’s ability to support district implementation and monitoring of school actions for school reform. The project began with a general introduction to logic modeling and how logic models can be used to support program development, monitoring, and evaluation and was followed with a training on how to use logic models for three school actions: reassign, restart (partner- or district-managed), and new school (partner- or district-managed). By supporting our Texas Education Agency (TEA) partners’ understanding of the connections between system-level supports provided to districts, actions districts take, and the data needed to monitor implementation and effectiveness of school improvement initiatives, this project intended to help TEA use logic models to better understand school improvement efforts as well as communicate to districts how to plan for and implement school actions.
