In the Mt. Adams School District, each school and the district have improvement plans. Each plan is required to be data driven, promote a positive impact on student learning, and include a continuous improvement process that shall mean the ongoing process used by a school to monitor, adjust, and update its school improvement plan.
Harrah Elementary School, Mt. Adams Middle School and White Swan High School use the Consolidated School Improvement plan format. This template meets the requirements of Title I, Part A, Schoolwide Programs, WAC 180-16-220, ESSA, and The Office of System and School Improvement. This plan follows the plan, do, study, adjusts cycle and has four components: The Needs Assessment, Schoolwide Reform Strategies, Activities to Ensure Mastery and Coordination and Integration. Plans are submitted electronically using Sharepoint, a web-based system implemented by OSPI for use with district and/or school improvement teams to inform, coach, sustain, track, and report improvement activities. Plans are submitted in January and June.
