School Improvement Plan (SIP)

The School Improvement Plan (SIP) is an annual submission made by government schools to their District Education Office.

The submission is required to help schools define their needs so that the government can provide them with a corresponding budget to help improve the quality of education at the schools based on those defined needs. The objective is to establish the long-term and regular practice of the all-round development of the schools by promoting the participation, dynamic involvement, and ownership of local parents/guardians, social workers, and students including all the stakeholder-groups (SIP Formulation Guidebook, MOE, 2069). The ultimate objective of school improvement planning is to improve the level of student achievement (SIP, a Handbook for Principals, Teachers and School Councils, 2000).

Childreach Nepal found that there was a need for the Head Teachers, and the School Management Committee (SMC) members to know the process through which schools set goals for improvement and make decisions about how and when these goals will be achieved. During various sharing programmes in these schools, Head Teachers and SMC member expressed a need for such training/s – not only to provide quality education to students but even for their own professional development which would not only motivate them but will also help in building their capacity.

Objective

To give a general Introduction of government policy and planning to the SIP stakeholders, head teachers and the School Management Committee (SMC). To un- derstand the roles and responsibilities of different stakeholders, Head Teachers, SMC members in preparation of the SIP and process of developing SIP.
