What is a School Improvement Team?
According to North Carolina state statute, every school must have a School Improvement Team (SIT) which is designed to "develop a school improvement plan (SIP) to strengthen student performance". The membership of the SIT at the Hospital School includes the principal, the administrative assistant and the chairperson of each SIT Action Team. At monthly meetings, the SIT creates and monitors the implementation of the SIP. Meetings also provide an opportunity for collaboration among stakeholders to address issues directly or indirectly related to instruction, student performance and school climate.
The school improvement process is designed to move schools toward the goals established in the CHCCS Long Range Plan.
