    Introduction: Texas School for the Deaf District Improvement Plan 2017-2018

    TSD’s District Improvement Plan (DIP) is designed to implement Year Two of our school’s Five Year Strategic Plan. The DIP was developed by the Chairs of the Five Year Plan Strategic Goal Teams and was designed to better align the DIP with the Five Year Strategic Plan.

    The TSD Five Year Plan for 2016 – 2021 consists of six strategic priorities:

    Communication

    Academic and Personal Achievement

    Staff Support

    Data-Driven Decision-Making

    Outreach for Maximum Statewide Impact

    Campus and Facilities

    DIP Monitoring Process

    Strategic Goal Team Chairs and the Executive Leadership Team will provide periodic status reports on the DIP during the course of the school year. The status reports, which will be made available on a searchable spreadsheet, will be arranged by strategic priorities and will include status indicators and outcomes as outlined in our DIP action plans.

    Regulatory Appendices

    Over a period of several years, a number of state and federal regulations have required the addition of certain components to the DIP. An appendix has been added to address these required state and federal components.
