The Follow-Up Rights Assessment is a process the school undergoes to understand what change has occurred in the rights respecting practices and policies of the school as a result of the Rights Respecting Schools initiative. There is no set date for this assessment, but many schools do the Follow-Up Assessment approximately one school-year after the Initial Rights Assessment.
Most of the components of the Initial Rights Assessment are repeated during this follow-up step so that the rights respecting capacities of the school before the Rights Respecting Schools initiative can be compared with the rights respecting capacities after one school-year of implementation.
Note: That the Follow-Up Rights Assessment differs from the Initial Rights Assessment in that the Student Workshops are not repeated during the follow-up and instead schools must complete and submit a review of their RRS Action Plan called the RRS Action Plan Review.
The Follow-Up Rights Assessment has four components:
- 5.0 Administrator Survey
- 6.0 Student Surveys
- 7.0 Teaching Staff Survey
- 8.0 RRS Action Plan Review
The findings of the Follow-Up Rights Assessment are shared with the RRS Facilitator after which the school receives its formal recognition as a Rights Respecting School.
