Continuous Improvement Process

Adopting a continuous improvement process is integral to a school leader’s success in supporting student literacy outcomes. 

The continuous improvement process, often referred to as a “Plan/Do/Study/Act” or “Plan/Do/Check/Act” cycle, involves evaluating the current reading system, establishing priorities and goals based on evaluation data, creating an action plan for the prioritized areas, and implementing the action plan while collecting student and implementation data. Once the plan is implemented, data is analyzed, and the process begins again.

In this guide you will learn how to establish a process of continuous improvement across all elements of the Lead for Literacy Framework to improve instruction and intervention, and ultimately the effectiveness of the schoolwide reading system.
