Continuous Improvement

Weatherford ISD and the Weatherford ISD Board of Trustees are committed to the use of Continuous Improvement as a means to provide a stable, long-term framework for improving student achievement, as well as department performance.  

The Board holds that the Baldrige Criteria for Performance Excellence, called Continuous Improvement for the Weatherford ISD, provides a comprehensive, integrated systems perspective of overall organizational performance management. The seven categories include the following:

  • Category 1 Leadership
  • Category 2 Strategic Planning
  • Category 3 Customer Focus
  • Category 4 Measurement, Analysis, and Knowledge Management
  • Category 5 Workforce Focus
  • Category 6 Process Management
  • Category 7 Results

These seven concepts bring together an integrated leadership and management system that drives success in departments and schools in the District, providing a strategic focus on overall organizational competitiveness and sustainability. To this end, the Board adopts Continuous Improvement as its improvement theory, providing a framework to advance and align goals, strategic plans, policies, budgets, and administrative actions to improve the District, especially its classrooms.
