Proviso West High School Forges Ahead: Will Host School Improvement Plan Meeting

Proviso West High School is forging ahead with school improvement efforts designed to better meet student learning needs, monitor student data, foster a collaborative teaching environment, increase parental involvement, and build a strong community coalition to support improvement efforts.

“When we talk about school improvement we are talking about putting the systems and processes in place to help better support our teachers, our students, and our parents,” said PTHS 209 Superintendent Dr. Nettie Collins-Hart. “I have met with the faculty, staff, and students of Proviso West to collaborate on how we can effectively implement our school improvement plans and work together to move our school system forward.”

Over the past few years Proviso West High School has worked to develop a school improvement plan that focuses on quality education and high levels of student achievement. These plans include goals designed to improve student achievement along with the steps necessary to accomplish those goals. Led by the building principal, the process of developing each school improvement plan includes the input and involvement of building and district staff along with student, community, and parental support. On Wednesday, February 2nd Proviso West High School will host a School Improvement Plan Informational Meeting for parents.

“We hope to share our plan with parents and to encourage them to support our efforts,” said acting Proviso West Assistant Principal, Dan Johnson. “Everyone at Proviso West is interested in ensuring the educational outcomes of our students. We will use the school improvement plan as a guide to ensure that we are working toward the same goals and objectives when it comes to meeting the educational needs of our students.”

Johnson said during the meeting they will also solicit parent and community volunteers to serve on the school improvement plan team.

During the school improvement process, a School Leadership Team is in place and includes all of the administrators in the building. This leadership team focuses on the full implementation of the school improvement plan including the facilitation of meetings that involve all stakeholders in the plan. Additionally, there is a School Instructional Team, comprised of administrators and teachers, who focus on meeting student learning needs through consistent review and revision of curriculum and teaching.

Finally, there is the School Community Council, comprised of representatives of the school including administrators, teachers, students, parents and community members. They focus on anything relating the school to the home including parent teacher conferences and supporting the school-home compact. The "ongoing conversation" between school personnel and parents is candid, supportive, and flows in both directions. The school regularly and clearly communicates with parents about its expectations of them and the importance of the "curriculum of the home." In addition, a liaison from West 40, the school district assigned regional support through the state, works closely with the team.
