The Office of School Improvement (OSI) assists schools
in developing School Improvement Plans (SIPs) that are in alignment
with the District Strategic Plan and state and federal requirements.
Assistance to schools with the development of School

of Education and federal legislation. Beginning with the 2008-2009
