Bureau of School Improvement (BSI) Mission

The Bureau of School Improvement (BSI) serves as a partner in supporting improved outcomes for all students through strategic problem solving, capacity building, and the implementation of sustainable systems in the areas of:

  • Transformational Leadership
  • Standards-based Planning, Instruction, and Learning
  • Positive Culture and Environment

Bureau of School Improvement Vision

We serve districts and schools as collaborative partners to support continuous improvement and improved outcomes for all students by:

  • Providing monitoring and support to low performing schools
  • Building positive relationships, effective communication, and a growth mindset among all stakeholders
  • Supporting an equitable learning environment focused on improving student outcomes and closing the achievement gap
  • Coaching for standards-aligned learning and evidence-based interventions
  • Utilizing various data for purposeful planning and problem solving

Bureau of School Improvement Goal

If we implement our Bureau of School Improvement mission and vision with fidelity, then 67% of Differentiated Accountability (DA) schools will increase their school grade in 2019.

Continuous Improvement Management System (CIMS)

The Continuous Improvement Management System (CIMS) was developed by BSI to provide districts and schools with an online platform to support school improvement. The system includes:

  • School-based data visualizations for needs assessment and goal development
  • School improvement plans
  • UniSIG grant 1003(a)
  • Registration for BSI-hosted professional development opportunities
  • Resources, tools, and guidance to support continuous improvement

All districts and schools in Florida are welcome to use CIMS. Specific requirements and timelines for schools and districts in Differentiated Accountability, as well as a wealth of additional information may be found in the FAQ and Toolkit.
