The Ohio Improvement Process (OIP) brings educators together through collaborative team structures and facilitates communication and decision-making between and across a multitude of systems. The team structure consists of peer-to-peer networks that encourage all voices and allow for the inclusion of multiple perspectives in guiding each school toward organizational learning and continuous support.
The purpose of TBTs is to work continuously to strengthen teaching and learning for all students through collaborative planning based on the collective interpretation of formative assessment data. When TBTs fulfill their purpose, teachers acquire higher levels of individual and collective efficacy, they use more effective practices, and student learning improves. The diagram below illustrates the connections.
The diagram below summarizes the most important findings.

The TBTs function exceptionally well as a result of their fidelity of implementation of the five-step process. They analyze the data from all students (including subgroup populations) at all TBT meetings, and through this process develop multiple teaching and learning strategies they will implement. They hold each other accountable, and they support each other collaboratively not only within their own grade bands, but vertically as well. The principal, as a leader of the process, supports all the staff members as they strengthen the adult practices in their classrooms.
