Organizational Audit

Taking a Good Look at Ourselves!

Each EdFOCUS audit is a thorough and objective description of the current status of a school operation in comparison to the intended status. EdFOCUS identifies the discrepancy between the two, and this gap analysis provides a road-map for what needs to be addressed. These audits are planned with district staff to match the context of its particular circumstances. An audit could target the entire district, specific grade levels, or an individual building. The data collected include on-site interviews, observations, and review of key documents.

The final report for each audit documents findings, cites commendations, and makes recommendations – all to reduce or eliminate the identified “gaps” between the desired and actual status. Although EdFOCUS has a set of protocols for several types of audits, a combination of audits is often requested.
