School Improvement

  • School Improvement and Accountability

    ESSA, Title I, Sec. 1112 requires all Local Education Agencies (LEA) have a general improvement plan addressing the requirements of the law such as a description of the actions the LEA will take to assist its low-achieving schools identified as in need of improvement. Plans must be reviewed and revised annually.


    Marion County Public Schools has established standards for schools that serve as the context for school improvement. School progress toward the attainment of Florida content standards is measured by Florida Standards Assessment in grades 3 through 10 and by End-of-Course examinations. The gap between the state standards and current achievement on these assessments provides the direction for school improvement goals and efforts.
