Assessments and Testing

Learn more about the district and state tests students take to measure academic progress. Visit our Assessments and Testing webpage.


  • Continuous School Improvement Plans (CSIP) are action plans that identify the areas a school plans to focus on. The CSIP is an action plan for each school that identifies the areas a school plans to focus on in the current and coming school year, the performance goals they want students to achieve, and how the school plans to collaboratively meet these goals.
  • The plans are updated regularly to reflect the strategies being used at each school. This document also serves as the school-wide improvement plan for our Title I schools. To view other schools, visit our CSIP webpage.
