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

The OIP 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 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 OIP draws upon improvement efforts that are already in place and involves the commitment of all stakeholders, in the district and community.
