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.

BEX IV

The recently land marked Loyal Heights Elementary building is 38,000 square feet and was built in 1932. It will be modernized and a 54,000-square-foot addition will be built to increase capacity to 660 seats.

Levy Approved: 2013

Budget: $37.3 million

Project Description

The project will provide much-needed classrooms surrounded by open-shared learning areas to provide flexibility in teaching and learning. The building will also provide spaces for special education programs, music, art/science and childcare.

The new commons multi-purpose space will be located adjacent to the new gymnasium with a partition wall, which creates an enlarged space for school performances and other events on the new stage when opened. The library will be relocated into the historic lunchroom taking advantage of the main floor location to improve accessibility for students and the community.

The approximate one-acre playground will continue to be located on the south portion of the site but with an enlarged covered play area.

Sustainability Features

An open courtyard in the heart of the building will provide daylight and natural ventilation to surround spaces improving the learning environment.

Energy efficiency will continue with a geothermal system, displacement ventilation, LED lights with lighting controls and other passive systems to achieve a low energy use index (EUI) goal.
