School Improvement Plan or Compliance Plan?

Or is it a school improvement plan?

Look, a one-page essay is hard for many students to write. A one-page poem is hard for most adults to write. And a one-page improvement plan is hard to find in most schools.

That’s because most schools don’t have improvement plans.

They have compliance plans.

Compliance plans are lengthy. They document everything your school does. They attempt to prove you’re doing your best. They attempt to show how well your school complies with local or regional mandates.

Compliance plans are about safety and security.

Improvement plans are not this. School improvement plans are bold and risky.

The best improvement plans are short. They’re focused, and they have clear Objectives and Key Results (see What are OKRs?).

This is my challenge to you. Can you fit your improvement plan on one page?
