Schools and districts in Oregon are called upon to engage in continuous improvement work to improve outcomes for students. A continuous improvement process is the process by which districts and schools:
Determine what is working and what needs to change;
Establish a process to engage stakeholders to effect change;
Leverage effective practices to implement a plan;
Use data to monitor and make timely adjustments to improve outcomes.
The continuous improvement process results in the development of an ambitious, priority-driven action plan where routine collaboration and decision-making among district leaders is reflected throughout implementation.
CIPs are reviewed at regular intervals during the year to adjust strategies and techniques to reach the plan goals.
