                                      This school improvement plan template is designed to provide a step-by-step approach to planning. The template is aligned with the NCDPI-recommended model for
                                      school improvement planning as outlined in The North Carolina School Improvement Planning Implementation Guide. The template is aligned with the
                                      recommendations found in the Guide. For instance, space is provided for up to 5 goals for each school and drop-down menus reflect recommended guidelines such

                                      as quarterly, or at most semi-annual, review cycles. Each page of this template is designed to print neatly on an 8.5 inch-wide piece of paper, though the length may
                                      stretch to several pages. At certain locations, you will see a prompt to "select" an item from a drop-down menu. To use this feature, select the cell, then
                                      look to the far right of the cell for the drop-down button. Click the button to select the item for that cell.


                                      Please note the template has several tabs along the bottom of the Excel workbook. Each tab corresponds to an input and/or step of the planning process. For
                                      example, the tab named “Step 1 Cover Sheet” (see below) provides a location to input relevant school demographic data (we anticipate that the future on-line version
                                      will pre-populate this data) and school improvement team information as well as space for the principal and the local board of education chair to sign-off. Other tabs
                                      provide reference information for the school improvement team (SBE Goals, District Goals), a place for data analysis and summary, and of course, a place to identify
                                      and track school-level goals. Additional detail for each tab is provided below.


                                      SBE Goals – This tab lists the five current State Board of Education goals for North Carolina. Use this as a reference as needed.

                                      entering your district-level goals is a critical step because it builds one of the drop-down menus you will use in Steps 3 through 7, described below in greater detail.

                                      school. Other data sources may be available locally as well and teams should not limit themselves to evaluating the sources listed in the template.

                                      planning process.

                                      priorities. Data sources for use with this tab are listed on the “Data Sources” tab and the SWOH template is provided to help structure meaningful team
                                      conversations.

                                      Steps 3 through 7 – School Goals – These tabs provide space to record goals based upon the priorities resulting from data analysis. A separate tab is provided for
                                      each goal up to 5 goals (3-5 goals are recommended for each school). For each goal, several items can be recorded: the relevant area for improvement, the goal and
                                      the district-level goal it supports, measures, quantitative target, and milestone date. The school improvement team can also record the specific strategies to be
                                      implemented to achieve the goal along with action items for each strategy. The lower portion of each sheet provides a place to discuss potential interventions, to
                                      identify funding sources (using a drop-down menu) and team members, and to document the review cycle frequency for the goal (also using a drop-down menu).

                                                       SWOH Analysis: School Improvement Review Process
Purpose     The SWOH Analysis (Strengths, Weaknesses, Opportunities for Improvement, and Hurdles) provides a current assessment of the school improvement plan and
            data. The information obtained through the SWOH Analysis will be used as the basis for action planning with the School Improvement Team.

            Data gathered by priority/goal team
            Copies of School Improvement Plan
            Copies of SWOH Template (1 per team)


            Step 1 – Determine the stakeholders (faculty, staff, administrators, parents) participating in the School Improvement Plan Review.

            Step 2 – Organize the stakeholders into their priority/goal team.

            Step 3 - In each team, appoint a timekeeper, two recorders, and a reporter. Timekeeper keeps the group on schedule. Recorder #1 takes notes on the SWOH
            Template and Recorder #2 creates the chart that will be presented to the whole group. Reporter shares the information on the chart with the whole group

            Step 4 - Each team works together to complete the SWOH template, analyzing their data and their action steps.
Process




            Step 5 - Recorder #2 captures the Strengths, Weaknesses, Opportunities for Improvement, Hurdles and recommended next steps on the chart paper.

            Step 6 - Each reporter presents the information on the chart to the full group.

            Step 7 - Time must be allowed for additional input about the data and action steps from the whole group. This can be accomplished by having the group write
            additional input on sticky notes or by completing a gallery walk.

            Step 8 - The School Improvement Team compiles the information from the SWOH templates and the charts.

            Step 9 - The School Improvement Team uses the SWOH analysis in their planning process.

                                      School Data and Summary Analysis

Use data identified on the Data Sources tab (or from other sources) as the basis for understanding the school and identifying

Guiding Questions: Review school data and consider a variety of perspectives including overall school/student performance,
sub-group performance, attendance, teacher satisfaction, instructional practice (from walk-throughs/observations), and
student learning (also from walk-throughs/observations as well as data).


1. What does the analysis tell you about your schools strengths?
* Northwest F & P benchmark assessment data for 08-09 shows that 93% of K-2 students were performing at grade level
standards at the end of the school year compared to 85% for DCS.

* Northwest math assessment data for 08-09 shows that 91% of K-2 students were proficient on math objective
assessments at the end of the school year compared to 87.3% for DCS.

* Northwest F & P benchmark assessment data for 08-09 shows that 77% of 3-5 students were performing at grade level
standards at the end of the school year compared to 73.4% for DCS.

* Northwest reading EOG data for 08-09 shows that 79.9% of 3-5 students were proficient on the EOG reading test
 compared to 75.6% for DCS.

* Northwest math EOG data for 08-09 shows that 90.7% of 3-5 students were proficient on the EOG math test
 compared to 87.8% for DCS.

* Northwest science EOG data for 08-09 shows that 82.3% of 5th grade students were proficient on the EOG science test
 compared to 67.9% for DCS.

2. What does the analysis tell you about your schools gaps or opportunities for improvement?

*There is a 16 % gap between student performance on K-2 and 3-5 F&P benchmark assessments.

* Science scores were improved over 07-08 -- teachers will continue to have Mad Science demo lessons in 5th grade
and will be implemented in other grades this year as well.

* Math scores were improved over 07-08 -- with new textbook will be trying new approaches to teaching math as well as
maintaining the previous years growth.

3. What data is missing, and how will you go about collecting this information for future use?


* All data is based on end of the year assessments. This year we will collect data on a quarterly basis. We will also
implement ClassScape in grades 3-5.

4. Based upon the analysis conducted, what 3-5 top priorities emerge for the school?
Cite relevant evidence from your analysis to support these priorities.
Goal 1 -- Improve K-2 Reading
Goal 2 -- Improve K-2 Math
Goal 3 -- Improve 3-5 Reading
Goal 4 -- Improve 3-5 Math
Goal 5 -- Improve 5th grade Science

Evidences are cited in the answer to question 1.
