The Strategic District Improvement Plan (SDIP) is the Stamford Public Schools three-year improvement plan for the 2009-10, 2010-11 and 2011-12 school years. The SDIP reinforces the Board of Education's five goals and categorizes our high-leverage work into four areas:
- Curriculum, Instruction & Assessment
- De-Tracking/Instructional Grouping
- Professional Learning Communities and Data Teams
- School Culture
The SDIP sets measurable targets to increase student achievement on the CT Mastery Tests (CMT) in grades 3-8 and CT Academic Performance Test (CAPT) in grade 10 and to decrease achievement gaps. The SDIP also lays out clear action steps for each area and includes results indicators --measurable progress checks-- for adult actions and student outcomes to be tracked at regular intervals. Visit the Executive Summary page for additional information about the strategies and outcomes for each of the four areas.
