    School Improvement Plan

    The School Improvement Plan (SIP) is a set of goals, objectives and action steps, that drives our educational activities relating to school improvement and education accountability.  Parents, teachers, and administrators all have a role in developing these goals.  Each plan shall address issues relative to budget, training, instructional materials, technology, staffing, student support services, specific school safety and discipline strategies, and other matters of resource allocation, as determined by district school board policy, and shall be based on an analysis of student achievement and other school performance data. Please click here for our SIP.

    How can parents get involved and participate in the SAC committee?

    Parents are encouraged to attend the monthly meeting of the SAC committee at their child’s school.

    Why is it important for parents to be active participants?

    • The SAC committee provides a place where parents can voice their opinions and suggestions.  They have an active role in making decisions that will best serve the students.
    • SAC also gives the opportunity for parents to actively participate in setting goals and making plans to achieve those academic goals.
    • SAC allows for parents to identify issues that need to be addressed concerning the school climate.

    What can be accomplished if I participate in SAF?

    Over the years, it has been parents, teachers, community members, etc. who have made positive changes in schools.  These changes can be at the school level, district level, state level and within the community or city.  From the school level, parents like you made the following changes:

    • Instead of having social security number to identify children, the schools now use a new randomly generated number to prevent identify theft and other privacy issues.
    • Defibrillators are now at every high school. A defibrillator is a machine used to shock the victim's heart and restore the heart's normal rythmic patterns. When a defibrillator is used, it in effect kicks the heart into action again, causing it to resume sending blood throughout the body.  This was needed specifically due to incidents during athletic activities.
    • It is now mandated that recess must not be used as punishment and all elementary students are entitled to 15 minutes of recess.
    • Currently, SAF was brought the idea to make lunch account information available online.
