  6. 6. Component Four: Developing Target Area Goals Future Strategies for School Improvement TARGET AREA GOALS Component Three: Assessment Analysis The School Profile Identifying areas of improvement Component Two: Assessment of School’s Present Condition What is and What Should Be Component One : Survey Development Identify specific areas to target Developing Target Area Goals
