MIRACLES Continuous Improvement

MIRACLES A Continuous Improvement Plan

In the 2020-2021 school year, Evanston/Skokie School District 65 implemented a set of bold strategies to positively impact student achievement. Accomplishing this work takes a robust, collective approach across the entire district, all schools, and throughout the community. The MIRACLES framework creates a pathway to truly realize the District's mission and values.

By using the word MIRACLES as an acronym, the District is able to align priorities with the values important to our community. Each letter represents a principle or belief in the form of a tenet. Each tenet has a minimum of 5-7 indicators, which are research-based strategies for school improvement in the areas of equity, the instructional core, rigorous and relevant course of study, learning targets, accountability structures, and sound financial planning.

MIRACLES represents the District's commitment to continuous improvement through a formal plan which incorporates district-wide priorities established in the 2019-2020 school year as well as needs based on the ongoing collection of data.

District 65 issues its MIRACLES in Action report twice per school year (December and June) to reflect and monitor the continuous improvement efforts underway across the district.
