In light of vision for public sector school education under the New Deal (20182023). a new monitoring framework has been envisioned to focus on, and improve the quality of learning through a mechanism that provides support at multiple levels of educational stakeholders in the Punjab. The School Education Department (SIF) has developed the School Improvement Framework (SIF) that re-organizes the existing system of monitoring to move towards a new system of supporting school improvement.
A pilot was held in six districts from December 2019 March 2020. Based on the findings from the field. requisite changes were made prior to finalizing the SIF.
In preparation for the implementation of the SIF. a dashboard has been developed to generate quarterly scores and provide detailed reports at the District, Tehsil. Markaz and School levels according to the new framework.
Furthermore, PMIU-PIESRP has conducted trainings on the framework of SIF and associated implementation routines in all 36 District Education Authorities (DEAs) of Punjab.
