Our district has a simple but bold vision – thriving schools that prepare graduates for college, career, and community. To achieve this vision, we need exceptional central office departments that inspire excellence with equity and produce the highest-quality products and services. Central Office Measures of Performance (COMPs) are one way that we set goals, monitor their progress, and evaluate success in MMSD.
Why Create a COMP?Throughout the annual COMP process, departments identify their work streams, priority projects, and metrics/data for monitoring completion and success. The COMP process aligns with both the MMSD’s Strategic Framework Priority Area V: Accountability and the Central Office Satisfaction Survey, administered to central office departments every spring. The COMP Theory of Action follows a similar logic to the School Improvement Plan (SIP) Theory of Action: If we execute these work streams and priority projects effectively, we will fulfill our department’s purpose and provide the highest level of support to schools, students, and families.

Manage Projects Effectively
Project management plays an integral role in the success of COMPs. In 2015-16, central office departments jointly focused on project management as a method to efficiently and successfully complete projects in order to better serve the district. Project charter and work plan materials, along with other project management tools, can be found in the Project Management Toolkit.
