The documents on this page include tools to guide the Campus Improvement Planning process: evaluate, investigate, monitor/adjust.

A CIP should be a focused action plan for the campus. It should define student achievement goals, establish instructional strategies for the campus community, and set priorities. The construction of a CIP requires evaluation of existing campus goals, making decisions based on relevant data; investigation of best practices, such as the "Core Practices Framework"; and knowledge of what to monitor and how to adjust throughout the school year.

For questions or more information about the CIP process, please review the Region 10 website
