Ohio Improvement Process (OIP): A Foundation for Sustainable Improvement in Student and Adult Learning

Not Just a Planning Process

Ohio's improvement strategy – consisting of the OIP and Ohio's Leadership Development Framework – is a systemic process that builds on but goes far beyond a traditional plan-do-study-act model. By providing a structured way for collaborative learning teams (and their members) to examine their own and each other's work in relationship to a system-wide plan, it counters isolated practice. In fact, the OIP contributes to the development of a unified approach whereby professionals at each level of the system (e.g., classroom, school, central office) play an important leadership role in refining and expanding the collective capacity of the entire system.
