What is Student-Centered Accountability (S-CAP)?
The Student-Centered Accountability Program (S-CAP) is a system of accountability proposed and designed by a group of Colorado rural school districts. At the heart of Student-Centered Accountability is a focus on the success of well-rounded students using a system for continuous improvement. To accomplish this, the districts use multiple measures of student success to expand results beyond a single state test score. Classroom assessments, as well as dispositions that characterize a successful student, are used to provide more meaningful and comprehensive data to describe student achievement and growth. In addition to student results, S-CAP believes evaluating the capacity of the systems that support student success is an essential function of accountability. S-CAP uses an on-site audit of districts to evaluate the system components needed to support student success. With both comprehensive student success data and ratings from on-site reviews, local school boards are able to monitor performance and ensure the district continuously improves its capacity for the purpose of student success.
