Continuous Improvement Cycle

The effectiveness of ESEA investments can be strengthened by:

  • identifying local needs;
  • selecting evidence-based interventions that state education agencies, local education agencies, and schools have the capacity to implement;
  • planning for and then supporting the intervention; and
  • examining and reflecting upon how the intervention is working.

These steps when taken together, promote continuous improvement and can support better outcomes for students.
