The SIP Big Picture site is intended to support educators in building, using, communicating, and monitoring school improvement plans that actively link improvements in student outcomes with improvement in professional practices.

Many School Improvement Plans are compliance-driven and are not effective in supporting  the changes in professional practices that will improve student outcomes. Additionally, traditional school improvement plans tend to conflate means and ends by creating goals that do not focus on students but rather focus on process.

This web site will introduce educators to the “Big Picture” for School Improvement that will include the following key elements:

  • Student Goals
  • Professional Practices
  • Educational Strategies
  • Professional Development and Collaboration
  • Metrics
  • Monitoring System
