DIAGNOSTIC TOOL FOR SCHOOL AND DISTRICT EFFECTIVENESS (DTSDE)
On May 29, 2012, the United States Education Department granted the New York State Education Department (NYSED) a waiver from specific provisions of No Child Left Behind (also known as ESEA "the Elementary & Secondary School Education Act"). One of the primary focuses of NYSED's successful waiver submission was to create a new, common, and robust school and district review process. This process compares a school and district's practices to the optimal conditions of learning, as defined by the Diagnostic Tool for School and District Effectiveness (DTSDE) rubric.
Section 100.18 of Commissioner's Regulations requires that each Focus District participate annually in a diagnostic review using a diagnostic tool of quality indicators as prescribed by the Commissioner that shall focus on the accountability group(s) for each accountability performance criterion for which the school district and its schools have been identified as Priority and/or Focus. Each year, the Commissioner will appoint an Integrated Intervention Team (IIT) to conduct an on-site diagnostic district review and school reviews of selected Priority and/or Focus Schools within the district to inform the development of the District Comprehensive Improvement Plan and school Comprehensive Education Plan. For schools designated as Focus and Priority in the years in which an IIT does not conduct an on-site diagnostic review, the school district will be required to annually use a diagnostic tool, in the form prescribed by the Commissioner, to inform the development of the District Comprehensive Improvement Plan and the school Comprehensive Education Plan.
