Community Based Accountability System (CBAS)

  • Community-based accountability empowers students, parents, and educators to build a learning community that honors and supports their work. It empowers school districts to design their own internal systems of assessment and accountability that, while meeting general state standards, allow them to innovate and customize curriculum and instruction to meet the needs and interests of their communities.


  • The seven pillars in community-based accountability are:

    • student learning and progress
    • student readiness
    • engaged and well-rounded students
    • community engagement and partnerships
    • professional learning and quality staff
    • fiscal and operational systems
    • safety and well-being of our students
