Understanding Continuous Improvement: Goals, Objectives, Strategies and Activities


Rationale: The development of goals and objectives to be obtained through strategies and activities is an essential component of executing a continuous improvement plan. In short, the Needs Assessment completed during Phase II expresses the school or district’s CURRENT STATE, while goals, objectives, strategies and activities should succinctly plot the school or district’s course to their DESIRED STATE. Here are the operational definitions of each:


Goal: Long-term target based on Kentucky Board of Education Goals. Schools may supplement with individual or district goals.


Objective: Short-term target to be attained by the end of the current school year.


Strategy: Research-based approach based on the 6 Key Core Work Processes designed to systematically address the process, practice or condition that the school/district will focus its efforts upon in order to reach its goals/objectives.


Activity: The actionable steps used to deploy the chosen strategy.


Key Core Work Processes: A series of processes that involve the majority of an organization’s workforce and relate to its core competencies. These are the factors that determine an organization’s success and help it prioritize areas for growth.


Guidelines for Building an Improvement Plan


  • There are 5 required District Goals: Proficiency, Gap, Graduation rate, Growth, and Transition readiness.

  • There are 4 required school-level goals:
    For elementary/middle school: Proficiency, Gap, Growth, and Transition readiness.
    For high school: Proficiency, Gap, Graduation rate, and Transition readiness.

  • There can be multiple objectives for each goal.

  • There can be multiple strategies for each objective.

  • There can be multiple activities for each strategy.

1: Proficiency

State your Proficiency Goal


Goal 1:  Increase combined reading and mathematics proficient/distinguished percentage from 48.9% to 54.3%

Which Strategy will the school/district use to address this goal? (The Strategy can be based upon the six Key Core Work Processes listed below or another research-based approach. Provide justification and/or attach evidence for why the strategy was chosen.)


Which Activities will the school/district deploy based on the strategy or strategies chosen? (The links to the Key Core Work Processes activity bank below may be a helpful resource. Provide a brief explanation or justification for the activity.

Identify the timeline for the activity or activities, the person(s) responsible for ensuring the fidelity of the activity or activities, and necessary funding to execute the activity or activities.

Objective 1:  Increase percentage of students scoring proficient and distinguished in reading and math

KCWP 1:  Continue vertical curriculum work to ensure alignment, pacing and identification of standards to be mastered.

· Ensure monitoring measures are in place to support high fidelity in teaching to the standards, by way of peer observations, formal and informal observations, classroom data/running records, and standards mastery checks.

· Ensure that vertical curriculum mapping is occurring to identify instructional gaps, including planning for the introduction of the standard, development and gradual release phases, and arrival at standards mastery.

· Ensure ongoing professional development in the area of best practice/high yield instructional strategies to aid in curricular adjustments when students fail to meet mastery.

· Ensure that curricular delivery and assessment measures provide for all pertinent information needs for students

Process which addresses activities are established

Monthly CIA meetings

Monthly Admin meetings

Objective 1:

Increase Reading proficient/distinguished percentage

KCWP 5:  Provide support for Tier 3 schools by providing professional learning on utilizing MAP for the purpose of increasing student mastery of skills in Math and Reading

District will provide schools with professional learning experience to learn how to:

  1. Why we take the MAP test?  What is its purpose?

  2. Obtain student growth goal data.  

  3. Plan for differentiated instruction.  

  4. Monitor and Measure student growth.



Student growth will increase in Reading and Math will increase at a higher rate than predicted by NWEA.

Staff will meet with teachers/SST/school admin to record and discuss student progress made with differentiated planning of learning for students.





KCWP 5: Provide Tier support for all schools based on needs

  • Ensure that Needs Assessment results are reflected in the systemic approach to funding expenditures that support school improvement efforts.

Schools will be demonstrating growth with strategies as documented through data and meetings

Monthly CIA meetings


  • Ensure that formative, interim, summative assessment results, as well as universal screener data, are used appropriately to determine tiered intervention needs

  • Utilize the Persistence to Graduation Tool/Early Warning Tool to assist in identifying students at risk for remediation, failure, and/or untimely graduation.

  • Develop and deploy a PLC protocol with an effective cyclical process for standards deconstruction, designing of assessment measures, resource sharing and collaborative lesson creation, and analysis of data.








3: Graduation rate

State your Graduation rate Goal


Goal 3:

Increase graduation rate from 86.9% to 90%

Which Strategy will the school/district use to address this goal? (The Strategy can be based upon the six Key Core Work Processes listed below or another research-based approach. Provide justification and/or attach evidence for why the strategy was chosen.)

Which Activities will the school/district deploy based on the strategy or strategies chosen? (The links to the Key Core Work Processes activity bank below may be a helpful resource. Provide a brief explanation or justification for the activity.

Objective 1:

Establish different pathways to graduation

Research option for an alternative pathway to high school graduation.

Work with KDE, FCS Board of Education, Academy and local high schools to establish purpose, plan and function of an alternative pathway to high school graduation.  

Documentation of discussion via meetings leading to approval of an alternative pathway to high school graduation.

Meeting notes/updates



Research and implement night school

Meet with stakeholders to create and implement a night school learning pathway for high school students so that they may work during the typical school day and attend classes during evening hours


Approved plans and implementation

Meeting notes/updates



Create and pilot a leadership course in collaboration with Frankfort Chamber of Commerce

Stakeholders from FCS will meet with Frankfort Chamber of Commerce to create and implement a work ready leadership course for high school students who are most at risk.  This course will be implemented as a pilot project in Spring 2017 with FLEX students at FCHS.

Creation and implementation of work ready leadership course

Meeting notes, presentations to Chamber members for approval




4: Growth

State your Growth Goal


Goal 4:
