District Continuous Improvement Plans are required by Oregon State Statute 329.095. The Oregon Department of Education is committed to assisting schools and districts in the important work of self-assessment and continuous improvement planning. To that end, ODE is using Indistar® for Continuous Improvement Plan (CIP) submissions.

Indistar® is a web-based, continuous improvement process, adopted by Oregon for school and district continuous improvement planning. District and school Leadership Teams use this tool to assess their professional practice compared with indicators of research-based effective practice and chart their course for improvement. The system supports this process with clear expectations, a structured process and access to research and resources (R & R) related to each of the “indicators” of effective practice. The resulting “Continuous Improvement Plan” communicates to educators, students and their families, and the community the process of self-evaluation, thoughtful planning, implementation and monitoring of that plan to elevate professional practice targeting increased student achievement.


Resources and Research (R&R) Aligned to Indistar® Indicators


Resources and Research (R & R) documents are designed to provide districts and schools a context for the indicator, research syntheses, examples and references.

Indistar® Forms
