Certification

Baseline Analysis

The Baseline Analysis

A Baseline Analysis is a tool for a district/school to use to assess the progress of a career academy. It is based on the ten National Standards of Practice. So, if your team believes the academy is not ready to be reviewed for Certification (In-Progress, Certified, Model, or Model with Distinction), but they are committed to following the National Standards of Practice, this might be helpful to you.

The Baseline Analysis is available for use in two ways. First, an academy can use the document for self-assessment.  Second, two NCAC Baseline consultants will conduct the analysis through an on-site meeting with the academy team(s), administrators, and external partners.  This assessment will provide you with a critical reference point for assessing your academy based on the National Standards of Practice.

The Baseline consultants will evaluate your strengths and areas for growth, submit a report to the review coordinator. Once the report is edited for accuracy, a written report with commendations and recommendations will be sent to the principal and promary contact. A Baseline Analysis my be a crucial element in formulating a professional learning plan for successful academy implementation.  NCAC is available to provide help with every step in designing, implementing, and sustaining your career academy.

You may contract with NCAC for an individual academy Baseline Analysis or for a school-wide Baseline Analysis.
