Key Performance Measures

A significant accountability and support mechanism for any strategic plan is the identification of a set of coherent and connected data measures that are indicative of the organization’s ability to accomplish its stated goals and ultimately achieve its mission. These measures are commonly referred to as Key Performance Measures (KPMs). Using KPMs to track the progress of an organization is supported both in the research as well as by effective practices from other school districts such as Montgomery County Public Schools, Charlotte-Mecklenburg Public Schools, and Boston Public Schools. In San Jose Unified, KPMs will not only provide accountability for the execution of SJUSD’s strategic goals, they will also be central in supporting the Equity Plan by highlighting the key variables and underlying factors that contribute to the opportunity gap that exist among SJUSD’s diverse student groups.

Several principles will drive the development and creation of the KPM system. These principles include: using leading indicators across all KPMs; connecting the classroom to district-level through bottom-up coherence; uses a monitoring process to drive KPMs; measuring the opportunity gap across each KPM; and building a school support and accountability system.
