From SIP to CSI: The History of School Improvement
at Schweinfurt Elementary Middle School
Schweinfurt Elementary Middle School was accredited during the 2004-2005 school year by the North Central Association (NCA). Accreditation focuses a school on improving learning for all students. A six-year study of schools actively engaged in the NCA process revealed that 79% made verifiable gains in student achievement. Consequently, NCA accreditation is a proven method for student success.
Since our last accreditation, The North Central Association Commission of Accreditation and School Improvement (NCA CASI) has reorganized with the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools Council on Accreditation and School Improvement (SACS CASI) and the National Study of School Evaluation (NSSE). The newly unified organization is called AdvanceED. From now on, they will be responsible for the accreditation of all DoDDS-E schools. Their Web site is: http://www.advanc-ed.org/. There is additional information about this merger on the
SES Accreditation Page.
Every DoDEA School is tasked to look at the strengths and weaknesses of the students in their school. They then choose a focus or goal. Data supporting this choice must be documented from three separate sources (triangulated) to insure that the goal truly addresses student needs. An action plan is then formulated to provide interventions and strategies that will directly impact student learning.
In September 2006, the name School Improvement Plan (SIP) was changed to Continuous School Progress (CSP). In September 2009, the name Continuous School Progress (CSP) changed once more to Continuous School Improvement (CSI).Our CSI Pages are dedicated to bringing you the news and information about Continuous School Improvement being implemented at SES.
