School Improvement
Plans
According to the Revised Schools Code (380.1277)
• All schools in Michigan must adopt and implement
a school improvement plan (SIP)
• These SIPs must focus on student academic
achievement
• The School Improvement Teams (SITs)that
implement the SIPs may include school board
members, school administrators, teachers, other
school employees, pupils, parents of pupils and
other district residents
• Local Boards of Education must approve the SIPs

For Most Schools….
• The ability of School Improvement Teams to
implement quality School Improvement Plans leads to
academic success for students
• Title I funds supplement the educational programming
in schools that meet poverty criteria and sustains
academic success for students
For Some Title I Schools….
• The implementation of the SIP along with the
supplemental funding has not been successful for
students
• The Statewide System of Support strengthens those
schools

2007-08 Cohort
• 141 Identified Title I schools received services
through the SSoS.
• The graph on the next page charts their progress
over the next 4 years.

New Identification for Title I
Schools
• Priority Schools (Persistently Lowest
Achieving Schools on the Top to Bottom List)
• Focus Schools (Schools with the largest
achievement gaps)
• Title I Schools Not Making AYP
• Reward Schools

Priority Schools
• Lowest performing 5% of Title I schools
as measured by MEAP/MME on:
o Reading
o Writing
o Math
o Science
o Social Studies
• BAA predicts there will be 150 – 200
schools in this category
4/8/2015 10
Priority Schools (cont.)
• These lowest 5% of Title I schools will also
be considered Persistently Lowest
Achieving Schools and be required to
follow state law and choose a Reform
Model to implement:
o Closure
o Restart as a charter school
o Transformation
o Turnaround

MDE’s Hypothesis
• If we combine the successful elements of the
current Statewide System of Support (SSoS) with the
implementation of a Transformation or Turnaround
Plan, schools have the opportunity to make rapid
achievement
• If districts and schools use their Title I money to
support the SSoS and Transformation/Turnaround
Plan, students have the opportunity to increase
student achievement rapidly

CLASSIFICATION OF TITLE I PRIORITY SCHOOLS
In order to differentiate for supports from the Statewide System of Support
All Priority Schools will choose one of the four School Improvement Grant Reform/Redesign models to implement:
1)closure 2)restart as a charter 3)transformation 4)turnaround
