Virtual School Quality Reviews

A virtual school quality review employs a transparent, research-based set of standards linked to positive student outcomes in order to evaluate the effectiveness of academic programs across all settings – remote, in-person, or hybrid. It is conducted 100% virtually, through a combination of document review, surveys, interviews, focus groups, and remote observation of classroom instruction. Check out this fact sheet to learn more.

School, District, and Network Reviews

SchoolWorks provides objective on-site Quality Reviews of academic programs conducted through document review, classroom observation, and interviews/focus groups.  During our reviews, school practices are measured against SchoolWorks Quality Criteria – a research-based set of standards linked to positive student outcomes. Each review includes a verbal and written report that identifies strengths and areas of need to inform improvement planning.
