Thinking About School Improvement

Continuous school improvement encourages a coordinated, focused school-wide approach through which those who work in schools can carry out society’s trust and demonstrate that this trust is well placed.

Continuous Improvement Leadership

The district administrative team and an appointed steering committee have primary responsibility for leading, coordinating, and monitoring the continuous improvement process.
