Continuous School Improvement Plan (CSIP)
The Continuous School Improvement Plan (CSIP) is an action plan for each school that identifies the areas a school plans to focus on in the current and coming school year, the performance goals they want students to achieve, and how the school plans to collaboratively meet these goals.
The plans are updated regularly to reflect the strategies being used at each school. This document also serves as the school-wide improvement plan for our Title I schools.
School and Building Reports
School Reports show a brief snapshot of a school’s academic growth, student climate, accountability, family and staff engagement, and overall school performance. School reports are produced by the State Office of Superintendent of Public Instruction for each school and district in the state and updated periodically throughout the year as data becomes available.
On state assessments, students who are expected to participate but do not, such as absences or opting out, are counted as non-proficient. This may affect the school’s overall proficiency rating.

School Climate Survey
School Climate Surveys are used for school-level improvements, climate surveys are given to all staff, students and families each year. The staff and student surveys are given to respective groups in person at schools; the family survey occurs in the spring.
Asbestos Hazard Emergency Response Act (AHERA)
Surveillance of known asbestos in the Seattle World School building is performed every six months by a designated person to assess the condition of the Asbestos Containing Building Materials (ACBM). Six-month assessment results are maintained by the district.
As required under AHERA, Seattle World School must maintain an Asbestos Management Plan (AMP) and keep it on file at the school. The AMP is available for review during school hours, Monday through Friday. For additional information, please contact:
Environmental Health and Safety Manager
As part of Seattle Excellence, Seattle Public Schools’ Strategic Plan, the district is committed to interrupting disproportionate practices in discipline. To support this work and to increase transparency and accountability, the district has created and published public facing discipline dashboards for each school which became available on November 1, 2021.
Discipline dashboard data reflects the current school year and will be updated quarterly throughout the school year. For questions or concerns, please reach out to the school leader for a specific school.
