From 2000-2003, the CSSI (Curriculum Standards for School Improvement) was engaged in a study of student proficiencies. The staff was surveyed about the skills they thought were most important for students to develop before graduating. Using the data collected, CSSI constructed a survey to collect feedback from various constituent groups e.g. senior students, alumni (Classes of 1997 and 2000), teachers and parents. CSSI then identified problem areas and began to study how the proficiencies are being addressed in our schools.
