Center for the Improvement of Student Learning (CISL)

The Legislature created the Center for the Improvement of Student Learning (CISL) to facilitate access to research, information, and materials on educational improvement (RCW 28A.300.130).

The Superintendent of Public Instruction appoints CISL’s director. CISL’s office is within OSPI, but it is not a part of any single division within the agency. Instead, CISL works in collaboration with OSPI staff, external partners, and families to address the academic and non-academic needs of all students. CISL’s work includes a specific focus on students who are underserved in our schools.

CISL’s mission is to connect people to the research, information, and tools they need to improve learning and teaching in our state.
