SMARTIE Goals & Key Performance Indicators

What is a SMARTIE goal?

Goals are a concrete way to drive results, but without an explicit equity and inclusion component, goals won’t produce better outcomes for marginalized communities, address disparities, or create belonging.

SMARTIE stands for Strategic, Measurable, Ambitious, Realistic, Time-bound, Inclusive, and Equitable. By incorporating an equity and inclusion component to your SMART goals, we're ensuring District 96's commitment to equity and inclusion is anchored by tangible and actionable steps.


What is a Key Performance Indicator (KPI)?

Key Performance Indicators (KPIs) are the critical (key) indicators of progress toward an intended result. KPIs provides a focus for strategic and operational improvement, create an analytical basis for decision making and help focus attention on what matters most.
