School Improvement Plans:  2016-17

School improvement planning provides a mechanism for identifying needs and establishing a common approach to meeting those needs at the school level. 

Effective school improvement planning contributes to overall school performance by:

• Establishing an understanding of the “big picture” of a school's current state, including student achievement, school environment, teacher community, parent community, and administrative issues;

• Reaching consensus across the school community on which needs represent the highest priorities for action based upon the potential to improve overall student and school performance; and

• Identifying for implementation goals and strategies, including specific targets, indicators and milestones required to address the school priorities.
