Ohio’s strategy for developing a unified statewide process is the Ohio Improvement Process. The objective of the OIP is that collaborative teams at the district (District Leadership Team), building (Building Leadership Teams) and classroom levels (Teacher Based Teams) be organized: to use data to assess the impact of instruction on student learning; to identify gaps and trends in student performance and make decisions regarding curriculum, instruction, assessment, intervention and professional development; and to use building and classroom data to consistently monitor progress in meeting indicators that are designed to close achievement gap sand contribute to the success of all children.
The Windham Exempted Village Schools have been involved in the Ohio Improvement Process since the 2009 school year in collaboration with SST8 support team from Summit County ESC. Information contained on this page and throughout this website contain information about the legal rights and notifications for parents and students concerning some of the programs and funding for improvement models under the Ohio School Improvement process.
