Adaptive System of School Improvement Support Tools - ASSIST

ASSIST (Adaptive System of School Improvement Support Tools) is an interactive web-based platform that uses technology to guide school and district administrators through the continuous improvement process, support disciplined thought and data-based decision making and ensure that compliance and improvement activities are effectively monitored and implemented. ASSIST allows Kentucky schools and districts to create unique data profiles, build high quality goals and plans, document and track the implementation process and evaluate the effectiveness of program and planning initiatives in a single system.

Who uses this system? Administrators in all Kentucky schools and districts (Superintendents, Principals and collaborative planning groups responsible for District and School Improvement Plans).

What data are collected? Comprehensive School/District Improvement Plans (CSIP and CDIP) are developed within the ASSIST system. Districts use data available in the School Report Card to guide the improvement planning process through the creation of goals and plans to improve student achievement. School and district administrators monitor and evaluate school progress through this tool.
