Schools and districts in Oregon are called upon to engage in continuous improvement work to improve outcomes for students.
A continuous improvement process is the process by which districts and schools:
• Determine what is working and what needs to change;
• Establish a process to engage stakeholders to effect change;
• Leverage effective practices to implement a plan;
• Use data to monitor and make timely adjustments to improve outcomes.
The continuous improvement process results in the development of an ambitious, priority-driven action plan where routine collaboration and decision-making among district leaders is reflected throughout implementation. Here is the three-year CIP plan for the Gladstone School District, developed in fall 2019.
