The Unified Improvement Plan is an intensive planning process required of all Colorado schools by the state Department of Education. Spearheaded by the principal with assistance from the Collaborative School Committee, the Plan asks schools to annually gather and analyze test data, identify root causes, and create an action plan with specific goals addressing the root causes. The Plan draws upon performance data from the Colorado Student Assessment Program and other tests to support conclusions and action steps. The process is intended to ensure Colorado’s schools meet state and federal standards and are held accountable for student performance.
