7.C. District and Campus Improvement Plans

Texas Education Code requires the development of a District Improvement Plan (DIP) that helps maintain the direction of the district and supports the achievement of the Board's strategic Lone Star Governance goals.  The District Education Improvement Committee (DEIC)  reviewed the DIP and will receive quarterly progress updates regarding the efforts to achieve the goals and objectives as outlined in the plan. The DIP is presented for board review.

The purpose of the Campus Improvement Plan (CIP) is to improve student performance for all student populations, including special education, with respect to the academic excellence indicators and other appropriate performance measures for special needs populations. The CIP must be supportive of the objectives of the district improvement plan.

Each school year the principal of each school campus, with the assistance of the campus-level committee, must develop, review, and revise the CIP. The CIP for each campus is presented for board review.
