All elementary principals and at least one teacher from their school attended the SIP Academy. Dr. Johnson used a direct teaching model for the workshop. She said that in looking at school improvement, you should start global but then zoom in on specifics, including data and classroom instruction. To really look at the SIP, you must do a Root Cause Analysis (RCA).
The goal for all elementary schools is to reduce non-proficient students by 10% in Language Arts and Math. Measurable Objective 1 should address Tier 1 instruction and Measurable Objective 2 should address Tier 2 and 3 instruction. The part that has traditionally been missing in SIP is monitoring. Dr. Johnson suggested revisiting the SIP weekly and monthly to monitor the school's progress.
