In the fall, schools begin to function under their newly adopted school improvement plan, paying specific attention to gathering baseline data, and effectively progress monitoring the strategies outlined within each building-level objective.
- School Improvement Plans and School Data Analysis were DUE on September 1 (ideally submitted by June 1 for district-level planning purposes)
- District should have submitted all School Improvement Plans by September 1
- Fall Benchmark Assessments need to occur during appropriate windows
- Title I Comparability from mid-October till late November
- Registration of Educational Personnel (REP) due late November
_A) Organize/Confirm the School Improvement Team with required members.
C) Compile summaries of both adult monitoring data (fidelity of implementation of SI strategies) and student impact data (generated from fall benchmarking or other assessments – identifies student need as it relates to chosen strategies) to use when reporting to District Improvement Team during October meeting
D) School Board Meeting: Present accreditation status seen at MI School Data Portal or MI School Report Card and the School Improvement Plan (SIP - preferably in 1- to 2-page summary of non-negotiables determined by the staff); share the Annual Education Report by October 15 (also advisable to "market" availability at Open House)
E) School Improvement Team should begin gathering formative and summative assessment data (Informed Interim Assessments) from all teachers and support staff in order to progress monitor chosen strategies as delineated in the School Improvement Plan
G) Administer Parent Perception Survey (typically at Parent-Teacher Conferences). Plan to administer staff and student surveys (December and March, respectively).
H) Discuss School Systems Review and how to collect staff perspective
o Option 1: Send out an electronic survey tool for all staff to complete then discuss key indicators in a follow-up staff meeting
o Option 2: Divide indicators to be addressed by staff teams that are composed of a variety of grade levels and/or departments.
o Option 3: Combine the two previous options OR create your own process
A) Organize/confirm the District Improvement Team with similar membership as at the building level (most likely representatives from the building SITs) to meet regularly (three to six times per school year recommended).
