Reflection Questions on Implementation and Service Delivery

As you begin the process of working toward a school- or district-level needs assessment, consider the following questions to help you identify priorities, barriers, and stakeholders in conducting a needs assessment:

  1. What are some barriers to completing a school- or district-level needs assessment in your setting?
  2. How frequently should your schools engage in this process?
  3. What areas do you think are most likely to surface as needs or priorities for your school?
  4. Aside from school psychologists, who else should participate in this process?
  5. How much time do you expect this process to take?
  6. What time of year would be best to begin and complete this process?
