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.

Meany Middle School was originally built in 1902. Additions were added in 1907, 1941, 1945 and 1955, with the 1902 section demolished in 1962 and replaced with the two-story central core. The renovation modernized and repurposed the existing building as a middle school designed for the 21st century.

Levy Approved: 2013

Budget: $19.3 million

Project Description

This new comprehensive middle school provides classroom seating for up to 850 students in grades 6-8. It will help meet the need for additional middle school capacity for Seattle Public Schools’ growing enrollment.

The reconfiguration of the 119,000-square-foot school was designed to ensure that all students are challenged and engaged, while keeping them safe socially, emotionally and academically.

Building projects included: new central commons, new entry, better internal circulation, new teaching stations, structural reinforcement to improve earthquake safety.
