Thorntown Elementary School
School Improvement Plan
Prepared in Compliance with Public Law 221
This school improvement plan has been reviewed and revised on behalf of Thorntown
Elementary School. It was prepared under the leadership of the building principal and assistant
principal working in cooperation with the school improvement committee appointed in
compliance with Indiana Public Law 221. The original plan was structured using the guidelines
provided in rules approved by the Indiana State Board of Education. The first plan covered a
three-year period dating from 2002-2005.
The original plan was reviewed and rewritten for the three-year period of 2005-2008.
This document reflects the new PL 221 Plan which is required by the Indiana Department of
Education. In order for our school to be considered for state accreditation, our school must
submit timely information regarding legal standards and relevant data regarding school
improvement planning and student achievement. This plan will be submitted to the state as a
three year plan, with our school updating and reviewing each year between 2013 – 2016.
