School Development and Accountability Framework

The School Development and Accountability (SDA) Framework introduced by the Education Bureau in the 2003/04 school year emphasises school self-evaluation (SSE) is a core element of school for its own improvement. SSE, complemented by school inspections and External School Review (ESR), helps promote continuous self-improvement in schools through putting in place a systematic Planning-Implementation-Evaluation (P-I-E) cycle. ESR teams validate the school performance in SSE and give suggestions for continuous school improvement. Schools are expected to make use of SSE and ESR to promote schools’ sustained development and accountability for improvement of students’ learning.
