Public Schools in North Carolina are required to submit a School Improvement Plan (SIP) to the local board of education for review and approval. Local boards of education are required by federal and state regulations to review and take action on submitted SIPs. The School Improvement Plans are written by School Improvement Teams at individual schools.
School Improvement Teams consist of the principal of each school, an assistant principal, teachers, support staff, teacher assistants, and parents of children enrolled in the school. Parental involvement is a critical component of school success and positive student achievement. The team develops a school improvement plan to improve student performance. For more information on SIPs, please contact the principal of your school.
