On February 9, 2017, Two Rivers Middle leadership team began the journey of developing their SIP goals for 2017-2018, which will be used to guide their budgeting. After that meeting, two more meetings were held. The next meeting occurred on February 23, 2017 to develop draft SIP goals. The final meeting was held on March 9, 2017 to solicit feedback and finalize the 2017-2018 SIP goals. The collaborative inquiry process was used to facilitate each meeting.

East Nashville Magnet Middle Prep also used the collaborative inquiry process for developing their SIP goals. However, they took a different approach by first having common planning time teams make data observations. The East Nashville Magnet Middle leadership team then used the observations to develop SIP goals for 2017-2018. Again, the SIP will be informing the budgeting process at East.

One great thing about the collaborative inquiry process is the fact that it can be used in different contexts and different ways to support schools.
