Continuous Improvement

The Michigan Integrated Continuous Improvement Process (MICIP) is a whole child district needs assessment, leading to an integrated and streamlined district continuous improvement planning process that will help us ensure that all Michigan districts are thinking comprehensively about the entire range of student needs, develop high-quality plans, and use their funding effectively to implement those plans and meet those needs.
