It’s that Time of Year…..School Improvement Planning
With our latest temperatures, one would say that spring is in the air. It’s also that time of year that School Improvement Planning (SIP) for the 2017-2018 school year takes place. I was excited and honored to work with Two Rivers Middle Prep leadership team on February 9, 2017 with their SIP development. Let me share how the collaborative inquiry process was used to facilitate the process.
Collaborative inquiry is a data-based team process that consciously uses the collaborative learning cycle (activating and engaging, exploring and discovering, and organizing and integrating) and the qualities of effective groups (fostering a culture of trust, maintaining a clear focus, taking collective responsibility and data-informed decision-making) (MNPS Community of Practice, 2016).
With this definition in mind, let me take you through the process.
