Monitoring and Evaluation
Monitoring and evaluation assist a school to measure their progress and continuously improve their program. Without this step, a program may not improve and may stagnate.
Many companies use triple bottom line reporting to their shareholders to demonstrate they are responsible in their operations and as a basis for continual improvement. This type of reporting measures the environmental, social as well as the wider economic impact of the companies operations.
Schools can extend this concept and include a fourth component dealing with educational outcomes.
