Revised
9/13/16

It is the policy of the Edmonds School District to require each school to develop and adopt a school improvement plan that includes an annual review process. Each school shall submit its plan to district leaders by October 15. School Improvement Plans will be submitted to the Edmonds School Board by the end of October each year for initial approval and annual review.

Each school improvement plan shall reflect the use of student performance data and shall promote a positive impact on student learning. (A positive impact on student learning means promoting the continuous achievement of the state learning goals and essential academic learning requirements, and the achievement of nonacademic growth in areas like public speaking, leadership, interpersonal relationship skills, team work, self-confidence and resiliency, so that students can meet the goals of Washington's basic education system: to become responsible citizens, to contribute to their own economic well-being and that of their families and communities, and to enjoy productive and satisfying lives.)

Each school improvement plan shall be based on a building self-review that includes the active participation and input of building staff, students, parents, and community members.

Each school improvement plan shall address the following elements:

  • Continuous improvement of student achievement of the state learning goals and essential academic learning requirements;
  • Safe and supportive learning environments;
  • Educational equity factors including economic disadvantge, gender, race, ethnicity, culture, language, and physical and mental abilities;
  • Use of technology;
  • Parent and community invovement; and
  • Other factors identified by the school community for inclusion in the plan or process.
Any school participation in a program of improvement assistance through the state accountability system or the federal Elementary and Secondary Education Act shall constitute sufficient compliance with this policy.
