The HPISD District Improvement Plan was developed by the District Leadership Team in the spring and fall of 2007. The planning
process was facilitated by Bill Mayfield, Janet Hindman, Shelley Collins, and Pamela Hicks. After reviewing district data to conduct a
needs assessment, small groups developed goals and objectives for the plan based on areas of need. Administrative staff
developed action plans to support the goals and objectives. Principals were responsible for using the same process to develop their
campus plans. District and campus goals and objectives were approved by Superintendent Bill Mayfield and the HPISD Board of
Trustees on October 17, 2007. Together, our Highland Park Team is committed to work on activities throughout each school year to
carry out the goals and objectives of the plan. We would like to acknowledge the following people for their efforts on this plan:

                                     Highland Park District Improvement Plan 2006-2009

Preface:       The District Improvement Plan (DIP) for Highland Park ISD is formatted as an interactive, online PDF
               document that will enable the Superintendent, Curriculum Director, Principals, District and Campus Improvement
               Committees, and other Professional Staff to readily access a working document throughout the school year. We
               believe this streamlined format provides a more effective means to focus upon our goals, to monitor our progress in
               meeting our goals, and to provide the School Board and our community the most current information possible about
               our schools.

               The Elementary Campus Improvement Plan, the Middle School Campus Improvement Plan, and the High School
               Improvement Plan each integrate into the District Improvement Plan by dovetailing into the District’s Goals and
               Objectives. These have been outlined and included with matching Campus Strategy numbers within the District
               Improvement Plan. The Financial Report of the District Improvement Plan outlines our State Compensatory and
               Federal Fund Sources and Full Time Employment (FTE’s) in support of our goals in a more condensed, user-friendly
               spreadsheet format. This report will be presented annually to the School Board for approval. The 2009 Budget is not
               available at this time. Campus Improvement Plans may be revised into a similar format of the District Improvement
               Plan the next school year and will be resubmitted to the School Board for final approval (2008-2009).

               Upon Board approval, our District and Campus Improvement Plans 2006-2009 will be posted on the Highland Park
               ISD website (http://www.hpisd.net) for parental and community perusal for two years according to state law. They will
               be updated periodically throughout the year as goals and objectives are reached. Our plans include and meet all
               federal, state, and local requirements including No Child Left Behind (NCLB) and §11.252 District-Level Planning and
               Decision-Making and §11.53 Campus Planning and Site-Based Decision-Making.

               We hope that you enjoy our new and improved format! Thank you!

Comprehensive Needs Assessment:

To assess where our students are in relation to our Vision, Mission, and our Board-approved goals, each Campus Site-Based
Decision-Making Team (SBDM) reviewed all available data to identify our strengths and to prioritize our areas of concern. Formal
reviews include data from the following: disaggregation of longitudinal AEIS reports and current-year AEIS data; results of
community and parent surveys; benchmark and/or common, periodic assessments; prior year budgets/entitlements and expenditures
in relation to current year funding and priorities; staff development needs surveys; results of state and federal planning requirements,




                                                                                                                                       3
and student retention rates. Informal measures include: needs identified through campus faculty meetings carried forward to SBDM
meetings; reviews of previous year initiatives to determine over-all effectiveness and implementation levels and to consider continued
development/modifications and necessary continued funding; staff emails to district-level personnel; and review of the District’s vision
and discussion at the District level, regarding current information/research-based strategies that will help us to attain our Vision.

Our studies led us to the following discoveries regarding our strengths and our areas of concern, and both of these, then became the
major focus of the Highland Park District Improvement Plan, either in the form of very specific objectives and Campus Strategies tied
back to our objectives. Our strengths and areas of concern are expressed in the following

                                    Mission and Vision Statements and District Goals


Our Mission:              Highland Park ISD is committed to student success
                                By offering multiple opportunities and experiences;
                                In a safe and challenging environment;
                                To graduate responsible and productive citizens.

Our Vision:          If Highland Park ISD is to be an Exemplary School District, we must have a clear sense
                     of the goals that we are trying to accomplish, the characteristics of the District that we
                     are seeking to become, and the contributions that the various stakeholders in the District
                     must make in order to transform our ideals into reality. Our vision statement that follows outlines
                     the standards that Highland Park Independent School District is committed to achieve and to
                     maintain as we continually strive to ensure student success for all of our students.

      An Exemplary School District recognizes the importance of each individual student and operates on the premise that school
      can only be as good as the personnel that it employs. With every staff member committed to our students, students are
      provided with a balanced, common core curriculum supported through innovative technology that stimulates intellectual
      curiosity, requires them to demonstrate that they have learned how to learn, and enables them to become productive and
      effective citizens in the midst of a warm and inviting climate. Most importantly, we believe that the effectiveness of any school
      is assessed on the basis of the conduct, character, and achievement of its students and that all are learners. Our goals serve
      as the blueprint for our continuous improvement efforts and the assessments by which we will evaluate our progress.

Our Goals:

Goal 1: HPISD will earn an accreditation status of Exemplary through the Academic Excellence Indicator System
        (AEIS), including earning Gold Performance Acknowledgements in all identified measures.
                                                                and
Goal 2: All HPISD special programs will meet or exceed compliance standards for individual programs for staff,
        students, parents, and community.

          (4)   resources needed to implement identified strategies;
          (5)   staff responsible for ensuring the accomplishment of each strategy;
          (6)   timelines for ongoing monitoring of the implementation of each improvement strategy; and

   (b) A district’s plan for the improvement of student performance is not filed with the agency, but the district must make the plan
       available to the agency on request.
   (c) In a district that has only one campus, the district and campus-level committees may be one committee and the district and
       campus plans may be one plan.
   (d) At least every two years, each district shall evaluate the effectiveness of the district’s decision-making and planning policies,
       procedures, and staff development activities related to district and campus-level decision-making and planning to ensure that
       they are effectively structured to positively impact student performance.
   (d-1) Expired.
   (e) The district-level committee established under Section 11.251 shall hold at least one public meeting per year. The required
       meeting shall be held after receipt of the annual district performance report from the agency for the purpose of discussing the
       performance of the district and the district performance objectives. District policy and procedures must be established to
       ensure that systematic communications measures are in place to periodically obtain broad-based community, parent, and
       staff input and to provide information to those persons regarding the recommendation does not create a new cause of action
       or require collective bargaining.
   (f) A superintendent shall regularly consult the district-level committee in planning, operation, supervision, and evaluation of the
       district educational program.
