Comprehensive Needs Assessment (CNA)
The Georgia Department of Education’s strategic plan emphasizes transforming the agency into one that provides meaningful support to schools and districts. The agency has developed a common, continuous improvement framework to ensure that these efforts are aligned across all agency divisions, departments, and programs. Georgia’s Systems of Continuous Improvement focuses on the systems and structures (the “what”) that must be in place for sustained improvement in student outcomes. It also utilizes a problem-solving model (the “how”) to provide a clear process for identifying improvement needs, planning for improvement, and implementing, monitoring, and evaluating the improvement efforts.
Georgia school districts completed a Comprehensive Needs Assessment (CNA) to review and define areas that need improvement. Click here to download the Comprehensive Needs Assessment for Whitfield County Schools.
