After setting targets, planning teams will develop a plan of action. This step includes identifying major improvement strategies, interim measures, and implementation benchmarks. Planning teams will also identify the specific action steps required to carry out each major improvement strategy and should respond to and eliminate or correct the root causes of each of the district or school’s prioritized performance challenges.
