What is the purpose of School Improvement Planning?
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 objectives and tasks, including specific targets, effective practices and milestones required to address the school priorities.
