School Improvement Plans

According to State Statute and Bay District School Board Policy 8.601:

Each school in Bay County shall establish a School Advisory Council (“Advisory Council”). The Advisory Council at each school in the district shall assist in the preparation and evaluation of the School Improvement Plan which shall provide a system of school improvement and accountability in accordance with Florida law. 


School Improvement Plans

• Is your SIP a catalyst for change? 

• How will you be a change agent on your school site?

School Improvement Plans are housed online at FDOE's Bureau of School Improvement website. SIP Contacts for each school may learn a great deal of information from the online toolkit under the SIP tab. If you should like to meet with someone to work through the process or provide feedback contact Dawn Capes.


Guidance for 2016-2017 when revising SIP

Schools should write their School Improvement Plans with their School Based Leadership Teams. While data is steadily being reported from FSA, we have plenty of data to refer to in order to revise/tweak our existing SIPs for 2016-2017 (FSA, EOC, FCAT, PLUS2, end of year NWEA MAP, Attendance, Behavior, etc.). 

Please note: Many items will roll in CIMS to the new 2016-2017 SIP- however, schools should examine each component to ensure it is updated and current for 2016-2017.
