School Improvement

Each year, our faculty reflects on the previous school year in order to make changes to improve our students' educational experience at McDonnell. The result is the Alabama Continuous Improvement Plan, or ACIP. This plan provides our faculty and staff with specific academic goals to aim for, and strategies to use to reach said goals. It also consists of stakeholder input, data from the previous year, and information about the school as a whole. The ACIP is a document that is revisited each year, and revised to meet the needs of the current academic year. Click the link below to view this year's ACIP.

The following document is prepared and required by the State of Alabam, and may not be fully accessible.
