Step 1 Upon the approval of the respective board of education, a district volunteers to participate in the review process.
Step 2 The district provides informational material to CISL. These materials correspond to four protocol areas - leadership, human resources, facilities management, teaching and learning. Documents may include: safety plans, board agendas, staff development activities, human resource manuals, etc.
 Step 3 The district identifies the groups from which it would like to receive feedback. The survey may be distributed to teachers, administrators/board of education members, students, classified staff and parents/patrons in the community. The survey consists of 40-50 questions regarding various aspects of the district.
 Step 4 A one to three day on-site visit is scheduled with the school district. The CISL team meets with various groups including: parents, teachers, board of education members, administrators, and classified staff. This visit includes observation of a board meeting.
 Step 5 CISL presents a summary of its findings at an agreed upon board of education meeting approximately 4-6 weeks after the conclusion of the on-site visit.
 Step 6 A full report detailing all findings from the review process is created by CISL and provided to the district approximately one month after CISL’s meeting with the board of education.
