Comprehensive Improvement Planning

Comprehensive Improvement Planning for Schools and Districts

Published: 6/6/2018 2:13 PM

​School and district improvement efforts focus on student needs through a collaborative process involving all stakeholders to establish and address priority needs, district funding, and closing achievement gaps between identified subgroups of students. Additionally, schools and districts build upon their capacity for high-quality planning by making connections between academic resources and available funding to address targeted needs.  CDIPs and CSIPs are due to KDE on January 1 based on public release of data via the School Report Card.

Continuous Improvement Diagnostic Rubric

In brief, continuous improvement should involve reviewing data, diagnosing needs, setting goals, and planning  strategies that can be deployed through actionable steps, or activities. When schools concern themselves solely with compliance, they have lost the spirit of continuous improvement. 

Goals and Objectives reflect measurable student achievement, and student achievement is determined by the processes, practices and conditions found within a school. We believe that all practices, processes and conditions are attributable to one or more of the Strategic Key Core Work Processes below: 

Once a strategy is identified, schools can begin to determine the actionable steps or classroom activities that will be
undertaken to effectively address critical needs. These activities should be monitored quarterly for progress.
