School Improvement Plan

What is a School Improvement Plan?

School improvement planning provides a plan 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.
