•  DIRECTIONS FOR COMPLETING

    THREE-YEAR SCHOOL IMPROVEMENT PLANS

     

     

    Your three-year school improvement plan is due to the Office of School Improvement in the Department of Education 60 business days after the completion of your Academic Review.  The division superintendent and the local school board must approve your plan.

    (see 8 VAC 20-131-310.F.-G.)

     

    For guidance in developing your school improvement plan, visit the OSI web page:  http://www.pen.k12.va.us/VDOE/SchoolImprovement/

    Scroll down to “School Improvement Planning.”

     

    Using the Three-year School Improvement Plan Format

     

    You may use the template for the School Improvement Plan (SIP) at the OSI website.  You must use the cover sheet and include the SOA/NCLB checklist found at http://www.pen.k12.va.us/VDOE/SchoolImprovement/supportteams.html

    Scroll to “School Improvement Planning Resources for School Support Team members.”

     

    When using this template, duplicate the second page and complete one of these pages for each goal in your plan.  Fill in all appropriate cells in the table, adding additional rows to accommodate additional information. Leave the OCTOBER 1 STATUS column of the table blank. This will be submitted on or before October 1 next school year. Complete the cover page and the checklist.  After approval by the division superintendent and local school board, submit the plan, the completed coversheet, and the completed checklist to Marsha Owens, Office of School Improvement, in the Department of Education.  The plan may be transmitted electronically to Marsha.Owens@doe.virginia.gov. When sending plans by e-mail, put “School Improvement Plan” on the subject line. A signed cover page (original or copy) must be mailed to Marsha Owens or faxed to the OSI office at 804-786-9763.

     

    You may use your own locally developed format or any other format for developing the three-year school improvement plan, but the requirements listed above for the cover sheet, checklist, and submission must be followed.
