CSI Introduction

INTRODUCTION TO CONTINUOUS SCHOOL IMPROVEMENT (CSI)

The Southwestern Union K-12 Educational System has adopted a Continuous School Improvement Cycle in support of strategic planning as well as the accreditation process.

Purpose:  Continuous School Improvement facilitates the transition from seeing school improvement as an “event” or based solely on compliance and accountability to a commitment to a shared vision that is inclusive of both student achievement and faith identity, and the evidence created can be used to satisfy external functions such as the accreditation process. This concept aligns with EDUCATION that emphasizes coherence among the key components of teaching and learning.   

Plan: Continuous School Improvement Implementation Plan based on the Six-year Accreditation Cycle 

Years 1-4: Implementation of the CSI Cycle in preparation for the Accreditation Visit in Year 6
Year 5: Implementation of the CSI Cycle in preparation for the Accreditation Visit in Year 6; Initiation of the Self-study process
Year 6: Implementation of the CSI Cycle in preparation for the Accreditation Visit; Completion of the Self-study; On-site Visit
