Action Planning/Continuous Improvement Plans ‘Continuous improvement’ is defined in the CCSU Mission and Vision as “a process characterized by inquiry, decision-making, engagement, and assessment within the learning organization that utilizes both internally (local) and externally (state and federal) generated benchmarks and/or quality indicators to monitor progress toward meeting or exceeding shared goals.” The CCSU Comprehensive Plan for Continuous Improvement (CPCI) is the framework that guides all site-based school action plans in our 7 schools, and is based on the following assumptions: The CCSU Comprehensive Plan for Continuous Improvement is the Educational Leadership Team‘s tool for ‘one plan planning.’ That is, any and all school-based action planning aligns with the K-12 Needs Assessment in column one of this tool. CCSU schools are at differing stages of progress concerning continuous quality school improvement as indicated by their data summaries and achievement goals. Action planning and the school improvement process promote continuous growth. Supporting schools to build upon identified capacities will enhance that school’s ability to implement quality improvement efforts that lead to improved student performance. Each school develops a Continuous Improvement Plan (CIP), formerly known as school action plans. The school CIPs are developed by the school leadership teams and faculty members and are driven by student data and any state required actions or school legislation. Schools review the goals and track data to measure progress towards meeting those goals. Below are the most recent Continuous Improvement Plans for the seven schools of Chittenden Central Supervisory Union: Center for Technology, Essex Essex High School Albert D.
