Office of School Improvement

The mission of the Office of School Improvement is to ensure that ACPS leaders and educators are equipped with the tools and skills to engage in continuous improvement practices necessary to achieve the vision of empowering all students to thrive in a diverse and ever-changing world.

The Office of School Improvement focuses on facilitating the division’s school improvement planning process for over 18 schools and Alexandria City Public Schools (ACPS) central office departments as well as the achievement of continuous academic improvement, especially in the area of Tier I teaching and learning as articulated in the division’s Multi-Tiered System of Support (MTSS).

This office's primary goal is to ensure that all schools successfully implement School Improvement Plans (SIPs) and the respective processes to achieve specific performance targets and outcomes. This office is responsible for establishing and implementing a systematic and cyclical management system to analyze and prioritize division-wide formative assessments, collect data, and subsequently develop action plans, and tools for monitoring as well as reporting outcomes.
