Virginia Department of Planning and Budget (DPB) Matrix of School Review Best Practice Recommendations and Best Practice Models

In response to Item 136 of Chapter 665 of the 2015 Acts of Assembly, the Virginia Department of Planning and Budget has developed a matrix of best practices and common recommendations previously reported in School Efficiency Reviews so that school divisions may use the model as a guideline for self-directed improvements toward better financial management and use of school division resources.

Best Practice Models
The list of best practice models provides a short list of techniques and methodology used in producing and supporting best practice recommendations.
