The development of goals, objectives strategies and activities is slated to take place during phase III of the continuous improvement process (November 1-January 1) and will be conducted using this offline template. Once completed to satisfaction, the document should be uploaded into the eProve Platform using the Phase III Goal Builder Diagnostic. Users may add columns and rows as needed while staying within the basic framework of the template. eProve administrative users can manipulate the document as many times as desired throughout the course of the year, uploading the latest versions as often as desired.   
 
Continuous Improvement/eProve Training
The Office of Continuous Improvement and Support, in conjunction with AdvancEd, will offer a series of three-hour training sessions.

Tools for Building Effective CSIP/CDIP Components
 
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.

We believe that all practices, processes and conditions are attributable to one or more of the Key Core Work Processes below: 

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