Program Improvement Process

Program Improvement Process

In accordance with School Board Policy and Procedure 616 - World’s Best Workforce, the Department of Curriculum, Instruction, and Educational Standards (CIES), in collaboration with staff across all sites, will implement a periodic Program Improvement Process (PIP) for review of all required instructional programs. The PIP utilizes a systematic process to ensure continual improvement in curriculum, assessment, and instruction. The goal of the PIP is to support high levels of student learning, through the development of comprehensive curricular programs. Each curricular and program area will be reviewed and changed, if necessary, using a process that includes research, data collection, and information and ideas contributed by multiple stakeholders. The PIP takes place over a period of several years and incorporates research on trends and best practices, evaluation of current programming and compliance with federal and Minnesota statutes, and planning for revision. Placement on the Program Improvement Process (PIP) Program Review Cycle Matrix may be subject to change for a variety of reasons which may include, but are not limited to, the following: standards adoption; statutory revisions; financial constraints: etc.
