  • Comprehensive School Improvement Plan

    The Comprehensive School Improvement Plan, or CSIP, is a detailed plan of actions for accomplishing the district goals. Creating and sustaining a high performance education environment takes both dedication and thoughtful planning. The CSIP is a planning document, featuring both broad-based perspectives on the priorities of our district as well as specific learning goals for our students. These goals provide an important measure of accountability.

    As a district, we are committed to focusing our time, our energy and our resources on providing a quality education for all of our students by striving to achieve our mission:  To enhance each student’s abilities by providing a quality education enriched by our diverse community.
