• School Improvement

    School Improvement is the single most important business of the school. It is the process that schools use to ensure all students are achieving at high levels. “The combination of three concepts constitutes the foundation for positive improvement results: meaningful teamwork; clear, measurable goals; and the regular collection and analysis of performance data.” Mike Schmoker

    School Improvement Plans

    Every school in LCPS develops a School Improvement Plan annually based on a comprehensive needs assessment that addresses the school’s current strengths and areas for growth. The School Improvement Office provides support to schools in developing their improvement plans using a variety of data points and stakeholder input.

    State and Federal Accountability

    The School Improvement Office supports school leaders with state and federal accountability requirements. All LCPS schools are fully accredited by the state of Virginia and also receive federal report cards, demonstrating compliance with federal education guidelines. The State and federal accountability ratings for all schools in Virginia can be accessed through the online VDOE School Quality Profiles: https://schoolquality.virginia.gov/ .

    Additional Support to Schools

    The School Improvement Office provides additional and ongoing support to schools as needed. This includes supporting school leaders in developing tools that help them assess the quality of instruction in their building, developing tools to monitor student data and student performance, and supporting additional instruction for SOL test remediation.

    Federal Programs

    Federally funded programs that provide funds to meet criteria set forth by the Elementary and Secondary Education Act (ESEA), as amended by the Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA):

    • Title I provides funding to develop, implement, and evaluate instructional programs that ensure that all children have a fair, equal, and significant opportunity to obtain a high-quality education and reach, at a minimum, proficiency on challenging state academic achievement standards.
    • Title II provides funds to assure that students in high poverty and/or high minority schools are not taught by inexperienced, unqualified, or out-of-field teachers at a higher rate than students in other schools.
    • Title III provides funding to help develop high-quality language programs designed to assist in teaching LEP and immigrant children.
