School Improvement Plans (SIPs) and School Performance Reports

School Improvement is a continuous process schools use to ensure that all students are achieving at high levels.  All schools engage in school improvement planning and develop a school improvement plan (SIP) for the purpose of annual building approval by the district. It is based on a self-review of the school’s program. The goal is always to support students in higher academic achievement by improving the teaching and learning environment of their school.


School Improvement Plans (SIPs) are documents produced by the schools which reflect the school improvement process.  Throughout the year, schools use student learning data to refine and modify plans to support student learning. The School Improvement Plans reflect the student learning needs and work for each individual school.

School Performance Reports were created first out of education reform legislation in 1993.  As part of that effort, each school in the state annually provides its parents and the community with a yearly update of its progress in key areas.  In 2001, the federal No Child Left Behind Act was adopted.  Through this requirement, schools are providing detailed information about student progress on state assessments, teacher quality, and other key demographic areas.
Most recent achievement information (2012-13):
The U.S. Department of Education granted Washington State a waiver request from Certain Elementary and Secondary Education Act (ESEA) requirements in July 2012.  Now there is a new way to measure progress and provide resources to support our work.  Schools may be identified be as Reward, Priority, Focus or Emerging. The number and percentage of District schools is included below:
     Reward    Priority    Focus    Emerging
District Number    2    0    1    2
District Percent    5.9%    0.0%    2.9%    5.9%
