Norton City Schools began the process of writing a strategic plan to guide our district in systematically improving student achievement in February of 1999. A district committee was formed to develop the district goals. Each building created a committee to form building goals that supported the district goals.
Each year the district reevaluates the goals met and conducts an analysis of student performance data. The goals are revised and each building revises their building plans. This process was called the Continuous Improvement Process.
In the spring of 2009, Norton City Schools began the Ohio Improvement Process. The Ohio Improvement Process (OIP) is Ohio's strategy for ensuring a systemic and coherent approach for building the capacity of all districts and schools in meaningful and real ways that allow districts to improve instructional practice on a district-wide basis and make and sustain significant improvement in student performance against grade-level benchmarks aligned with academic content standards for all students across the district. --ODE
