School Development Plan (SDP)
The NIS “School Development Plan” (SDP) is an action plan which represents a synthesis of the goals and tasks that were identified in the most recent CIS and WASC self-study and final team report, the various PYP, MYP and DP authorization/validation processes and our own planning. These are the key areas of focus which, if comprehensively addressed, will ensure that we can deliver our mission.
There are eight areas of focus: (1) Learning; (2) Well-being; (3) Staff; (4) Trust & Understanding; (5) Finance & Development; (6) Facilities, Resources & Operations; (7) Risk & Safety, and (8) Governance & Leadership. Each of these contains goals which represent an area of focus which we believe can be addressed in one academic year.
Within each area of focus the school has identified one or more targets, and within each target one or more goals. These goals form the focus of our collective work over the course of the 2022-23 school year.
Below in the attached PDF are the targets and their respective goals (numbered) for this upcoming school year. A full plan – which includes tasks or success criteria for each goal, as well as the goals set aside for future years, is available upon request.
