Continuous School Improvement Plan and School Profile

Nathan Hale CSIP

In Seattle Public Schools, we understand that a shared vision of practice is essential to fostering the learning communities that each of our students and adults needs to thrive.

This shared vision enables educators to work in concert to build their practice with a focus on student learning and principles of targeted universalism – a strategic framework where targeted and differentiated efforts are required to meet the needs of specific student populations, so every student meets the universal goal.

Each school annually publishes a Continuous School Improvement Plan (or CSIP) to outline the goals for our school, our students, and our parents and families. The CSIP provides a clear summary of the steps we will take collaboratively to improve our educational practices in order to support the academic and social-emotional needs of our students.
