    Above is the link to the Cove Creek School School Improvement Plan (SIP). In accordance with Watauga County Schools Board of Education policy 3430, "School Improvement Plan," SIPs are developed by each school's School Improvement Team (SIT), which is composed of administration, classroom teachers, support staff, and parent representatives. SIPs encompass the goals of the North Carolina State Board of Education's Strategic Plan and are directly aligned to the goals of the Watauga County Schools Strategic Plan.
