Pleasant Hill Continuous Improvement Plan
CONTINUOUS IMPROVEMENT PLAN (CIP)
School Years: 2019-22
Pleasant Hill School District
We provide every student with inspiring learning experiences that lead to continuous progression.
To graduate all students:
- With high levels of academic and personal achievement,
- Ready for post-secondary excellence,
- Prepared for productive, compassionate citizenship through research-based instruction and a collaborative system of support.
To empower all students to achieve post-high school success.
The Pleasant Hill School District’s Continuous Improvement Plan (CIP) was developed based on data from the following sources:
- Oregon Integrated Systems Framework (ORIS) Needs Assessment results,
- Stakeholder perception data (elementary, middle, and high school students, staff, parents),
- Student outcome data: student achievement and growth on state assessments, college-readiness testing results, regular attenders, 9th grade on track, and graduation rates
Stakeholder perception data is also disaggregated by race/ethnicity, gender identity, and sexual orientation. All student outcome data is disaggregated by student group and reported in annually to the School Board and community. Goals and Areas of Focus
The Continuous Improvement Plan Committee has put together a prioritized list of goals based on the data gathered. These priorities include student achievement in English Language Arts, mathematics, college-readiness, career-related learning, graduation rates for high school students, and attendance. Upon review of the data gathered from the aforementioned sources, Pleasant Hill School District recognized a gap in the achievement levels between historically underserved groups (students of color, students with disabilities, emerging bilingual students, and students navigating poverty, homelessness, and foster care, and other students that have historically experiences disparities) and other groups. In response to this data, and to meet the needs of all learners, the Continuous Improvement Plan Committee has embedded within its planning strategies ways to focus on improvement for these groups.
The ORIS needs assessment results indicate a need for the development and implementation of a district-wide multi-tiered system of support. This multi-tiered system is put in place to promote academic, behavioral, and social/emotional success for ALL students, with an emphasis on protected classes and historically and currently underserved and marginalized student groups. These systems would match levels of support to each student’s needs, goals, and interests.
In addition to annual public reporting on strategic plan measures and efforts to the community, stakeholders regularly review data to identify needs and assess the effectiveness of improvement efforts. Needs assessments are evaluated in many areas. These areas include District administrative meetings, data team meetings, school staff meetings, SITE council meetings, Special Education department meetings, Student Leadership meetings, and The Native American Advisory Committee meetings through the Lane ESD.
