The strength of a plan is in its ability to be measured and guide practices.  To this end, each direction is further defined by goals, with the success of these goals measured and rated on a scale of 1 to 5 (1 serious decline, 5 great progress), which then are averaged to inform the overall success of that direction.  These individual metrics can be explored by clicking the links to the Directions or Goals.  Metrics will change over time, as additional initiatives are launched, new practices explored, and additional consideration is considered.  By bundling measures by themes, we create an overall aggregate for directions, mixing a combination of qualitative and quantitative feedback for each direction.
