The CIP is a consortium of public school divisions in Virginia that have pooled resources and talents to help improve outcomes for students. In the fall of 2015, ten public school divisions in Virginia fully implemented the Comprehensive Instructional Program (CIP). Buchanan County, Dickenson County, Grayson County, Lee County, Norton City, Radford City, Russell County, Smyth County, Wise County, and Wythe County trained teachers and administrators in the use of CIP instructional resources, implemented the CIP benchmarks, and used the CIP data throughout the year to positively influence student outcomes. A very prescriptive approach has been implemented in each division as opposed to a one size fits all methodology. The results have been remarkable.
As evidenced by the data below, these CIP divisions in aggregate far outpaced state growth from 2015 to 2016. CIP divisions experienced a greater increase in pass rates from 2015 to 2016 than the state at a rate of 0.83 points in Reading, 1.25 points in Writing, 1.69 points in History, 3.11 points in Math, 1.36 points in Science, and 1.78 points overall (all tables on this page were created from data sets obtained on the Virginia Department of Education’s SOL Build-A-Table website).
The CIP consortium currently boasts participation by twenty-eight public school divisions in Virginia, and all others are welcome to join. If your division would like to participate, please contact Matt Hurt at email@example.com.
