State Board of Education Guidelines for a School Improvement Planning Process
Washington State Board of Education
Beginning with the 2003-2004 school year, school districts are required to assure the State Board of Education (SBE) that each school in their district has in place a school improvement plan/process (SIP) that includes a continuous improvement process. This assurance is noted on the Minimum Basic Education Requirement Compliance Report, that school districts submit annually to the SBE. School improvement plans must promote a positive impact on student learning, be data driven, and be based on the characteristics of effective schools (including safe and healthy supportive learning environments) as identified by the Office of Superintendent of Public Instruction's Office. This document includes the following information: (1) An Overview; (2) State Board of Education Guidelines for a School Improvement Planning Process; (3) SBE Policy: WAC 180-16-220; (4) Nine Characteristics of High Performing Schools; (5) State board of Education Learning Support and Improvement Committee.
