Continuous Improvement Process and Planning

Continuous Improvement CycleWhat is the Continuous Improvement Process?

Schools and districts in Oregon are called upon to engage in continuous improvement work to improve outcomes for students. A continuous improvement process is the process by which districts and schools: 

  • Determine what is working and what needs to change;
  • Establish a process to engage stakeholders to effect change;
  • Leverage effective practices to implement a plan;
  • Use data to monitor and make timely adjustments to improve outcomes. 

The continuous improvement process results in the development of an ambitious, priority-driven action plan where routine collaboration and decision-making among district leaders is reflected throughout implementation. 

Required for All Districts 

As described in OAR 581-022-0606 all districts must submit a continuous improvement plan to ODE every three years. ODE will require all districts to submit a plan no later than June 28, 2019. 
Please contact Tim Boyd, Director of District and School Effectiveness, with questions or for more information.
