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.

Magnolia 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.

BTA IV

In February 2016, Seattle voters approved the $475.3 million Buildings, Technology and Academics IV (BTA IV) Capital Levy by more than 72 percent. BTA IV renewed the expiring BTA III.

The existing school was modernized and new classroom and gymnasium wings were building in order to open the school as a new attendance area elementary to provide needed capacity in the Magnolia area.

Existing classroom windows were replaced with new thermally efficient windows, which replicate the historic aesthetic. Given the landmark designation of the building, many of the existing interior features, such as the main entry hall, the lunchroom/auditorium, classroom casework and trim, were refurbished to preserve the school’s historic character.

The school includes a multi-level playground designed to provide outdoor learning opportunities as well as play and is fully ADA-compliant.

About BTA

The Buildings, Technology and Academics (BTA) Capital Levy supports the district’s long-range plans to upgrade and renovate aging school facilities and address enrollment growth.

The BTA IV Capital Levy was approved by voters in 2016. Seattle Public Schools will receive these levy funds from 2017 through 2022.
