The School Improvement Plan (SIP) is a document that results from a collaborative effort of school stakeholders and sets forth measures to ensure change in student achievement. The plan is based on school data, and its strategies and activities align with what research indicates will improve student learning. As per the requirements of Title I, Section 1114, every school-wide school must have a School Improvement Plan that meets ten requirements set forth by the federal government. The ten requirements are as follows:
A comprehensive needs assessment;
School-wide reform strategies;
Instruction by highly-qualified teachers;
High-quality, ongoing professional development;
Strategies to attract high-quality teachers to high-needs schools;
Strategies to increase parent involvement;
Plans for assisting preschool children in the transition from early childhood to elementary school programs;
Measures to include teachers in the decisions regarding the use of academic assessments;
Activities to ensure that students who experience difficulty mastering proficient or advanced levels of academic achievement standards are provided effective, timely additional assistance; and
Coordination and integration of federal, state, and local services and programs.
