District Plan of Action

Background

The Longview ISD District Plan of Action is prepared in accordance with requirements of Chapter 11, Subchapter F, of the Texas Education Code, specifically §11.251 and §11.252. These requirements are also contained in LISD policies BQ (Legal) and BQA (Legal).
 
Each school district shall have a district improvement plan that is developed, evaluated, and revised annually, in accordance with district policy, by the Superintendent with the assistance of the district-level committee. The purpose of the district improvement plan is to guide district and campus staff in the improvement of student performance for all student groups in order to attain state standards in respect to academic excellence indicators.
 
The District Plan of Action is required by statute to include the following components:
• Comprehensive needs assessment
• Measurable district performance objectives
• Strategies for improvement of student performance
• Strategies for providing secondary students with information on higher education preparation and opportunities
• Description of resources needed to implement identified strategies
• Description of staff responsible accomplishing of each strategy
• Timelines for implementation of each strategy
• Formative evaluation criteria
 
In developing the 2013-2014 District Plan of Action, the LISD District Improvement Team met in committee to review the Needs Assessment and proposed Performance Objectives and Targets, and the full DIT recommended approval on November 11, 2014.
 
Accordingly, monitoring of the strategies included in the District Plan of Action is accomplished through ongoing monitoring. Further, each Campus Improvement Plan aligns directly with the District Plan of Action.
 
This plan has been collaboratively developed by the District Improvement Team which represents all District stakeholders. All performance goals identified in No Child Left Behind legislation including Special Education and Bilingual Performance Based Analysis System (PBMAS) identified indicators and the Highly Qualified Plan have been adopted by the district and are reflected in this Plan of Action.
