School Continuous Improvement Plan (SCIP)

  • What is a SCIP?

    SCIP stands for School Continuous Improvement Plan. Every school in St. Paul Public Schools has a SCIP. The SCIP helps keep us focused on our goal of high academic achievement for all of our students at LEAP. It is 3 years long and goes from 2020 to 2023.

    How do we make the SCIP?

    To make our SCIP, we look at data from tests students take in school, like the MAP, the MCAs, and the Access test. We also look at teacher classroom assessments, student grades and student surveys.

    What is the focus of SCIP?

    We feel that our school is meeting the mission and vision which is to meet the needs of students new to the country. While the Northstar Accountability metric developed by the Minnesota Department of Education measures LEAP’s success through four year graduation rate, attendance and scores on standardized tests, we have developed our own realistic measures. We will increase our four year graduation rate from 11% to 18%, by June 2021. We will continue to work with all of our students’ personalized learning and graduation plans on an individual basis, which includes supporting families who choose to have their students graduate in six-years.Please get involved!

    If you want more information about the SCIP or are interested in getting involved in our SCIP and school, please contact Principal Rose Santos at 651-228-7706.
