School Improvement Plan

Each year all MCPS schools develop a School Improvement Plan (SIP). The SIP is the driving force for continuous school improvement. The school's School Improvement Team (SIT) works with all stakeholders as the plan is developed and implemented. Plans are revised and updated yearly and submitted to the Community Superintendent to keep them informed. Copies of the entire plan are available in the main office or media center.
