Ohio Improvement Process - OIP

The state is implementing the Ohio Improvement Process (OIP), a system to support cohesive leadership to raise expectations and outcomes for all students. This process is aimed to close achievement gaps and ensure that a unified system of leadership is in place at all levels—state, regional and local.

he Ohio Improvement Process (OIP) is the result of work done by the Ohio Leadership Advisory Council (OLAC). The council defined leadership as key to improving instruction and instructional practice and learning. The Ohio Leadership Advisory Council was established in March 2007 to work with the department on school improvement. The council is composed of 50 representatives from key education groups and works with assistance from the Buckeye Association of School Administrators.

Strategy to Build Capacity at All Levels

The Ohio Improvement Process is the state’s strategy to build capacity at all levels to raise instruction district wide and increase academic performance for all students.

The Ohio Improvement Process will define how people operate in a system by supporting the creation of a framework that can be applied at all levels. The research-based process will support districts to use data to identify their areas of greatest need and develop a plan with streamlined goals and strategies to improve instructional practice and student outcomes.

By impacting leadership at all levels, the process will affect school improvement through careful planning, thoughtful implementation, effective evaluation, and progress monitoring. The overall process addresses the reality that all involved are responsible for success and accountable for results.

The Ohio Improvement Process draws upon improvement efforts that are already in place and involves the commitment of all stakeholders, including State Support Teams.
