Continous Improvement for Schools & Districts

 

Each year, schools and districts review policies and practices to consider ways to improve and enhance student achievement. This process, commonly referred to as the continous improvement process, is deeply embedded in building, district and state planning and accountability systems, and has become an integral and necessary part of school and system reform. While this type of planning has existed for many years, recent state and federal mandates including annual testing directives and increased accountability have intensified the importance of this process and its outcomes.

 

The Michigan Continous Improvement Process is:

 

  • A Mindset:  A way of thinking, resulting in decisions being made with student achievement in mind.
  • A Process:  Implementation of instructional strategies with fidelity and consistency over time.
  • A Product:  The plan that guides the teaching process on a daily basis.

  

This site will help all stakeholders involved in their school or district's continous inprovement process locate the necessary, policies, templates, deadlines, and tools.
