School Improvement Plan

  • What is the SIP?

    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 roll 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.

     NCLB Restructuring Process, An Action Plan for Continuous School Improvement.

    Our school will be receiving our AYP (Adequate Yearly Progress) data towards the end of June or the beginning of July 2009, for this school year.  We have been working very hard this school year in helping all of our students meet state and federal criteria in meeting AYP and in raising our school grade. As you know, some of our students continue to struggle with some academic growth. As partners in the education of all of our children, we are determined to help every child meet his or her highest potential.  As parents and educators, we know that sometimes it takes not only quality programs and teachers but also more time to be able to meet the needs of some of our children. 

    Because we have not made AYP for five consecutive years, we need to begin developing a plan for restructuring for next school year.  Depending on the data and the AYP designation we receive at the end of the 2010-11 school year, our school may be required to implement the restructuring plan.  A restructuring plan includes many opportunities to add additional support to some of our most fragile students. Look for additional information on how you can participate in meeting all students’ needs by volunteering, working on a committee, or reviewing plans at parent meetings. We look forward to our continued work together as we develop all of our plans for next school year.
