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.

The new 91,000-square-foot Genesee Hill School replaced the site’s former building and accommodates up to 650 students. The school community was moved from nearby Schmitz Park Elementary, providing that community with a modern school designed to 21st century standards.
