Ohio is committed to the implementation of a unified state system of support directly
focused on improving the academic achievement of all students and student groups.
The Ohio Improvement Process (OIP) is Ohio's strategy for ensuring a systematic
and coherent approach for building the capacity of all districts and schools in
meaningful and real ways that allow districts to improve instructional practice
on a district-wide basis, and make and sustain significant improvement in student
performance against grade-level benchmarks aligned with academic content standards
for all students across the district.
The OIP offers a structured process for enacting the essential practices, outlined
in the Ohio Leadership Development Framework, by giving districts time to review
their data and make more informed decisions, requiring a District Leadership Team
(DLT) Building Leadership Teams (BLTs), and Teacher Based Teams (TBTs) to participate
in the process of improvement, and offering a more time effective and efficient
process for districts in completing a comprehensive needs assessment as part of
their Comprehensive Continuous Improvement Plan (CCIP).
Ohio’s state support system, including State Support Teams (SSTs) and Educational
Service Centers personnel support districts in the implementation of the Ohio Improvement
Process and on the use of a connected set of tools so they can assist all districts
and schools in the state to improve instructional practice and student performance.
