School Improvement Plan

Every school, as part of the federal No Child Left Behind Act and Indiana’s Public Law 221, must have a school improvement plan. Each school has an improvement team comprised of staff, parents and community members. These teams developed their initial building plan in 2001-02 and revise the plan as needed each year.
