CSIP and School Report

About CSIP

The Continuous School Improvement Plan (CSIP) is an action plan for each school that identifies the areas a school plans to focus on in the current and coming school year, the performance goals they want students to achieve, and how the school plans to collaboratively meet these goals.

The plans are updated regularly to reflect the strategies being used at each school. This document also serves as the school-wide improvement plan for our Title I schools

About School Reports

School Reports show a brief snapshot of a school’s academic growth, student climate, accountability, family and staff engagement, and overall school performance.

School reports are produced by the State Office of Superintendent of Public Instruction for each school and district in the state and updated periodically throughout the year as data becomes available.

About School Climate Surveys

Denny Levy Projects

Here you will find an overview of work completed by school levies.

Levies are a primary funding source for construction, renovations, safety and security upgrades, major maintenance, classroom technology and technology infrastructure, academics support projects and athletic field and track improvements.

Seismic Report: The safety of our students and staff is our top priority. Earthquake safety/seismic improvements projects are funded through the voter-supported Building Excellence (BEX) and Buildings, Technology and Academics (BTA) capital levies. Visit the Capital Projects webpage to read the most recent report.


Denny International Middle School and Chief Sealth International High School are co-located on one campus. The modernized Chief Sealth opened Fall 2010, and the newly constructed Denny opened in Fall 2011.

Levy Approved : 2007

Project Description

The campus provides separate outdoor student plazas for the high school and middle school students. Landscaping and building forms express environmental sensitivity and a connection to nearby Longfellow Creek. The new Denny building features murals, paving patterns that reflect global diversity, off-street bus loading, new play areas and an environmental learning space.

Chief Sealth International High School’s modernization focused on abating life-safety issues, improving energy efficiency and comfort, revitalizing the school’s appearance inside and out, and creating a superior educational environment.

Denny International Middle School was newly constructed, with the school community moving from a nearby location. The building encourages team learning, a clear and flexible pathway to high school, and provides the many benefits of a 21st-century facility.

A new, large Galleria space between the two schools offers the flexibility of either separate school, joint school, or community use. The light-filled and expressive structure accommodates student services, student activity spaces, large display areas, and dining facilities.

The former Denny International Middle School buildings were demolished and sports fields were built for both district and community use.
