School Improvement & Accountability
Schoolwide improvement and school accountability are the mechanisms by which schools are held to the requirements set in federal and state statutes as well as Flagler School Board policy.
Additional information about the accountability process, including state-assigned school grades, is available from the Florida Department of Education (FLDOE) as well as the links below.
The Schoolwide Improvement Plan (SIP) is intended to be the primary artifact used by each school to work with stakeholders and review data, set goals, create action plans, and monitor progress on improvement. Individual SIPs are found within the Florida Continuous Improvement Management System (CIMS). Each school submits their plan to the FLDOE through this system.
The Elementary and Secondary Education Act of 1965, as amended by the Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA), requires every state and district to publish report cards that show how the state, district, and schools are doing with regard to student achievement and success. The FLDOE collects data on student performance metrics to calculate school and district grades. The most detailed sets of these data can be found using their EduData information portal.
The School Advisory Council (SAC) is a school-based group intended to represent the school, the community, and those persons closest to the students that share the responsibility for supporting the school's continuous improvement. The SAC is responsible for final decision-making at the school relating to the annual implementation of the SIP. The SAC assists in the annual preparation of both the SIP and the school's annual budget as well as the evaluation of the SIP.
SACs are coordinated by each school individually. Please visit the SAC page on each school's website for more information about meeting dates, times, and locations.
