MPIP: District Leadership Team (DLT)<hr>

Madison-Plains follows the recommendations of the Ohio Improvement Process in developing its teams. Membership of the DLT should include individuals with key positions at various levels of the school district, for example:
Superintendent Board Member
CCIP Administrator   Principals
Teacher Leaders    Department Directors
Parents   Union Representatives.

Those chosen for the team should be able to communicate effectively and influence others. The size of the DLT should be no larger than 20 and can be as small as 10 people. The facilitator must be able to articulate the work of the team, build consensus among the team members, and contextualize the process as needed. The DLT needs to understand that the work continues after the plan is developed: The work of continuous improvement is ongoing and involves the DLT in all four stages of the OIP.
