School Improvement in Region 8 

Ohio Improvement Cycle Graphic
SST8 provides support implementing the Ohio Improvement Process (OIP) to districts in reaching their long-term and short-term goals. OIP refers to implementation cycle that brings educators together through collaborative team structures to learn from each other and it facilitates communication and decision-making between and across levels of the system (district, central office, school, grade levels, content areas, classrooms). When viewed as an organizational framework, rather than a compliance check, the OIP gives districts a process for focused and intentional action. The team structures at the core of the OIP cultivate a wealth of information and understanding from multiple perspectives that drive and sustain successful improvement.
