OIP-stagesThe OIP involves four-stages (see Figure below) across which processes, structures, tools, and people are connected – all with the intent of helping districts enact Ohio’s Leadership Development Framework by (1) using data to identify areas of greatest need; (2) developing a plan to address those areas of need that is built around a limited number of focused goals and strategies to significantly improve instructional practice and student performance; (3) implementing, and monitoring the degree of implementation, of the plan with integrity; and (4) evaluating the effectiveness of the improvement process in changing instructional practice and impacting student learning and performance.

Sustainable improvement is not random. Rather, it is highly focused, beginning with an honest assessment of student data and the identification of academic weaknesses and related issues (e.g., climate and conditions) that must be addressed.

Stage 1

STAGE 1 of the OIP begins with this kind of assessment using Ohio’s Decision Framework (DF) tool. The DF is a decision-making aid designed to assist districts in making informed decisions – based on what their data tell them – about where to spend their time, energy, and resources to make significant and substantial improvements in student performance. A state-developed data warehouse allows for relevant data needed to complete the DF process to be readily available to districts and buildings, and community schools (AKA charter schools). Such data are organized in such a way as to allow district leadership teams (DLTs) and building leadership teams (BLTs), and community school leadership teams (CSLTs), to answer essential questions and make decisions about their greatest need related to improving student learning and performance.

This tool aims to facilitate planning for improvement of data systems based on data collected from users. The tool can be used to identify data collection goals and to document decisions made based on the data collected.
