What is a School Improvement Plan?

We expect each school to be engaged in a process of continuous improvement, and the SIP is an avenue for schools to report on and monitor their work. Through the SIP process, schools reflect on their goals, assess their progress and strategies, and refine their approach as needed. The end result is the school’s roadmap for achieving excellence and providing each and every child with an exemplary college preparatory education. Once the Instructional Initiative Action Teams complete their work, the expectation is that schools will align their SIPs to the action team goals and strategies, so the SIPs will effectively become blueprints for how each school is accomplishing our united goals.

The Bellevue School District acknowledges that we learn, work, live and gather on the Indigenous Land of the Coast Salish peoples, specifically the Duwamish and Snoqualmie Tribes. We thank these caretakers of this land, who have lived and continue to live here, since time immemorial.
