Time and Resources
Are you sure your resources are being well spent in terms of targeting science classroom instructional practices and student learning?
A Science Program Improvement Review will help you prioritize your time and money to get the most out of your resources.
SPIR fees are determined by the unique needs of the client and can be negotiated to support those needs. The base fee of $15,000 for one school review includes work with district/school leaders, surveys of key stakeholders, on-site observations of up to eight classrooms, focus groups, and the final report with recommendations. Most districts choose to sample more schools.
The cost of a district review depends on the size of your district and decisions you make about how many schools will participate in on-site classroom observations and focus groups. NSTA staff will guide you through the rationale and process for picking a sample of schools that will receive on-site observations. During that strategy, the costs can be determined while the benefits and constraints are considered.
