Kenwood Community: School Improvement Plan
All schools are required to have a school improvement plan (SIP). While we will continue to have high standards in all academic areas, the SIP helps to focus instruction in areas that the staff determines needs improvement. These plans are created by individual schools after looking at instructional data.

SCHOOL IMPROVEMENT STRATEGIES
To reach our school improvement goals, we will utilize the following evidence-based strategies.
Multi-Tiered Systems of Support (MTSS)
Description: MTSS is a comprehensive, evidence-based prevention framework. Within MTSS, multiple levels of support are provided to support the academic, social, emotional, and behavioral development of all students. Through it, all students are giving access to inclusive and equitable educational practices that minimize opportunity gaps.
Social Emotional Learning (SEL)
Description: "Social and emotional learning is the process through which children and adults acquire and effectively apply the knowledge, attitudes, and skills necessary to understand and manage emotions, set and achieve positive goals, feel and show empathy for others, establish and maintain positive relationships, and make responsible decisions" (CASEL, 2016). Social Emotional Learning strategies promote the development of schools that are safe, welcoming, and inclusive learning communities for all stakeholders.
