A model for evaluating a district’s options to pursue one instructional priority over another should present all of the options together and evaluate them along common criteria. This helps make sure all participants in the evaluation process are looking at the same information and helps them to consider multiple criteria against which to judge a given option.

The objective when evaluating options is solely to determine which options are more desirable than others, rather than to determine the absolute cost/benefit of each option. Therefore, a relatively simple evaluation model will suffice.
