School Improvement Planning Implementation Guide
The Guide offers a one-stop-shop for guidance on conducting school improvement planning. Sections include a legal overview, best-practices-based guiding principles, and a step-by-step process for planning. Several appendices are provided to offer additional details in areas where school improvement teams may wish for more information. The Guide is 25 pages long and is written in an easy-to-read, easy-to-reference "information mapping" format. The appendices add about 35 additional pages. We hope district and school leaders find this useful and keep it close by for use as a handy reference.

School Improvement Planning Template
The Template is provided in Microsoft Excel format. It is fully aligned with the guiding principles in the Implementation Guide. School improvement teams can use this document to walk through the process step-by-step, entering information directly into the pages of the Template. Each tab can be printed and compiled as desired to build a hard-copy school improvement plan. An on-line version of the Template currently is under development and will be available at a future date.
