School Improvement Plan
A School Improvement Plan (SIP) is the result of a planning process through which schools set goals for improvement, and then decide how and when those goals will be achieved. The ultimate objective of the process is to improve student achievement levels.
The Cherokee County School District welcomes parents, students and the community to view its school improvement plans.
Please see the Dean Rusk Middle School SIP on our School Improvement Plan page.
