1. What’s new in the Annual Implementation Plan
FISO 2.0 continua of practice
To streamline the Annual Implementation Pan (AIP) process, the self-evaluation against the Framework for Improving Student Outcomes (FISO) 2.0 continua of practice has been relocated to the end-of-year assessment process for the current AIP.
Schools continue to require both a learning and wellbeing goal and key improvement strategy in their AIP, however schools will now be able to ‘switch off’ the established system-wide priorities goal in order to adopt specific learning and wellbeing goals and key improvement strategies from the school’s School Strategic Plan (SSP).
Schools with an SSP not yet updated to FISO 2.0 that do not already have both learning and wellbeing goals can continue to use the priorities goal in their 2024 AIP, or can choose to update their SSP.
Schools updating their SSP should do so in consultation with their senior education improvement leader (SEIL).
New NAPLAN data and the AIP
The recent changes to NAPLAN reporting have implications for how schools assess against and develop NAPLAN-related targets. These are:
- 2023 AIP end-of-year assessment: schools can now select ‘not able to assess’ from the drop-down menu in SPOT. This option should be selected for all NAPLAN targets, as schools will not be able to determine whether they have ‘met’ a 12-month NAPLAN target due to the changes to the measurement scale.
- 2024 AIP: schools are able to set targets using the new NAPLAN measures as appropriate to their context. Schools may either set a specific numerical end-of-year target or can choose to use their 2023 NAPLAN results as the baseline for improvement (for example, ‘improve the proportion of students in the ‘excelling’ proficiency level of NAPLAN Reading from 15% (2023 baseline).’
Note that schools should continue to set targets for other (non-NAPLAN) datasets using the standard approach.
