1 Writing a School Improvement Plan High Schools

2 School Improvement Plan Rules and Regs School improvement planning is a process of developing, implementing, and integrating activities to maximize human, material, and fiscal resources. Illinois schools have been required to complete a school improvement plan (SIP) since 1986 [Illinois Code: 105 ILCS 5/2-3.63; 23 Illinois Administrative Code, 1.10; H.R. 1 (NCLB) Sec. 1116, p. 86.]

3 Schools in SIP Status Public Act explains the requirements for revised school improvement plans for schools in academic status. These requirements indicate that revised school improvement plans for schools in academic early warning status must be approved by the local school board and that plans for schools in academic watch status must be approved by the school board and the State Superintendent of Education. ISBE has developed a school improvement plan rubric to assist schools in the revision of their plans. This rubric will be used to evaluate the school improvement plans submitted to the State Board of Education.Public Act

4 We are expected to be very systematic about what we do to help ALL students master core curriculum.

5 We are expected to be very systematic about what we do to help ALL students master core curriculum. Can you be more specific?

6 We are expected to be very systematic about what we do to help ALL students master core curriculum. 1. Align each school districts core curriculum with state standards.

7 We are expected to be very systematic about what we do to help ALL students master core curriculum. 1. Align each school districts core curriculum with state standards. 2. Teach the core curriculum to each student

8 We are expected to be very systematic about what we do to help ALL students master core curriculum. 1. Align each school districts core curriculum with state standards. 2. Teach the core curriculum to each student 3. Monitor the progress of each student

9 We are expected to be very systematic about what we do to help ALL students master core curriculum. 1. Align each school districts core curriculum with state standards. 2. Teach the core curriculum to each student 3. Monitor the progress of each student 4. Use research-based strategies to instruct each student

10 We are expected to be very systematic about what we do to help ALL students master core curriculum. 1. Align each school districts core curriculum with state standards. 2. Teach the core curriculum to each student 3. Monitor the progress of each student 4. Use research-based strategies to instruct each student 5. Provide interventions for students who need more in order to succeed

16 41 Targets All students category plus 9 subgroups equals 10 groups Look at the 10 groups in the following areas –% tested in reading (10 targets) –% tested in math (10 targets) –Academic performance in reading (10 targets) –Academic performance in math (10 targets) Add in 1 point for one of the following –Elementary schools look at attendance –High schools look at graduation rate

18 AYP Information Page Review the AYP sheet. Work with your SIP team to identify your schools targets (Nos).

19 1.0 Performance Targets 1.1 AYP Information from the School Report Card SIP includes a copy of the AYP info page Score of 0 – AYP info page is not present Score of 3 – AYP info page is present Page 1 of School Improvement Plan Template

20 How to Copy & Paste AYP page from the web Go to isbe.net Select Report Card from left of page Select button for City name Type in City name Click on Search Click your City name Click on your school name Scroll to end of report card to find the AYP information page. Select the snapshot tool to take a picture of the AYP page Paste this page onto page 1 of the SIP plan

21 2.0 School Information 2.1 Information about students and staff 2.2 School characteristics narrative 2.3 Community characteristics narrative Describe your context. Pages 2-3 School Improvement Plan Template

22 Terms DEPENDENT VARIABLES = What are the NOs on the AYP Information Page? (NOs become targets) INDEPENDENT VARIABLES = What has caused these problems? STRATEGIES = How will you fix these problems? I ? D

23 3.0 Data Collection and Information TARGETS or NOS (DEPENDENT VARIABLES) 3.1 State assessment data 3.2 Local assessment data POSSIBLE CAUSES (INDEPENDENT VARIABLES) 3.3 Educator data 3.4 Professional development 3.5 Parent/family involvement 3.6 Additional types of data 3.7 Data quality Show your data!

26 Reading Comparison of Meets and Exceeds Total school population = White = Disabilities = Reading Gap between Disabilities & White Students Reading Comparison of Meets and Exceeds Total school population = White = Hispanic = Reading Gap between Hispanic & White Students Math Comparison of Meets and Exceeds Total school population = White = Disabilities Math Gap between Disabilities & White Students Math Comparison of Meets and Exceeds Total school population = White = Hispanic = Math Gap between Hispanic & White Students Findings:

27 Findings Learning History, Family Background of Target Groups Instructional History, Organizational History What has been tried previously?

28 4.3 Hypotheses to Explain Dependent Variables SIP team and faculty members brainstorm possible causes: Why did this group fail to hit the target?

29 Targets & Possible Causes TARGET or PROBLEM Low reading scores Poor attendance Insufficient # tested POSSIBLE CAUSES Instructional materials Moms education Teachers on leave Teacher mobility Student mobility Flu epidemic Uneven ILS instruction

31 Data Analysis T Target #__: 4.3 Hypotheses – Theories based on professional judgment about why the problem exists Data supporting the theories in 4.3 – Data to support the hypotheses. 4.5 Causal Factors – Professional judgment and data to identify the primary factors that cause the poor performance Selection of Strategy – Select one causal factor for each refined target. 1.
