Framework for Improving Student Outcomes (FISO): Policy

Details The FISO, a key Education State reform initiative, was introduced in 2015 for all Victorian government schools. The FISO encompasses three elements. The Model also includes the FISO Continua of Practice (the Continua) that supports schools to self-evaluate and sustain a climate of continuous improvement. The second element is the FISO Improvement Cycle, which supports schools to focus with greater precision on better outcomes for students by guiding schools through an effective inquiry process.
