    Comprehensive Improvement is used as the means of determining how
    schools and districts will plan to ensure that students reach proficiency
    and beyond by 2014. The process focuses district improvement efforts
    on student needs by bringing together all stakeholders to plan for
    improvement, focusing planning efforts on priority needs, building upon
    school and district capacity for high quality planning, and by making 
    connections between how the funds that flow into the district address
    priority needs in schools. 
    Copies of the CLIP are kept in our Parent Resource Center. Parents
    are welcome to come in and read the material and make any
    comments and suggestions. We welcome your feedback anytime
    during the school year. You may complete the form and return it to
    your child's school. If you have any questions, contact Felicia Hills
    at (912) 728-5112 or fhills@effingham.k12.ga.us.

SHES feels it is extremely important to educate all aspects of the student learner. Project Wisdom provides the opportunity for students to begin their day considering one of citizenship’s big issues, such as honesty or respect. Read more
