School Improvement Process

School Improvement Process (SIP)

School improvement is a continuous process. It is anchored in the belief that all students can achieve when the school culture, instructional practice, and classroom conditions are designed to meet a student’s diverse needs and experiences. The School Improvement Process (SIP) refers to a cyclical change process that promotes shared leadership with staff, students, parents/caregivers, and the community in developing a plan.

Interim Expectations for Parent/Caregiver Engagement in the School Improvement Process (SIP)

At its meeting on June 30, 2021, the Board of Trustees approved the extension of the 2019-2020 interim expectations for parent/caregiver involvement in the SIP to 2021-2022 school year with the addition of data sharing with parents and caregivers. The 2021-2022 proposed interim expectations for school teams will focus on:

  • Information sharing by the school on the SIP and the value of parent/caregiver engagement  
  • provide an opportunity for parents/caregivers particularly those, under-represented and under-served, to engage and provide input on the SIP goals
  • sharing of school data with parents/caregivers (well-being, equity, and achievement)
  • seeking input on the initial thinking regarding SIP goals with the School Council (as required under Regulation 612)
