Ensure implementation of the Journey's Reading and Math Expressions Programs with fidelity across all grade levels and across the two elementary schools and monitor the effectiveness of Tier I instruction including whole and small group instruction.

Continue to utilize the intervention block model to deliver Tier II and III services to students who need support in reading and/or mathematics, and enrichment activities for students meeting or exceeding goals.

Continue to strengthen our collaborative team model to review student assessment progress and identify the needs of our students down to the individual level, and in turn, adjust how we deliver instruction to our students in an effort to promote high achievement for all learners.

To monitor the progress of students through an individual teacher data team model in collaboration with the reading teachers and pupil service staff.


Human Capital

Through walk-throughs and observations, determine if current professional development training is being implemented in the classrooms with fidelity.

Ensure that a systematic employment process results in the selection of high quality candidates for every teaching and non-teaching position. Ensure our faculty reflects the diversity of the students and the community that we serve.

Develop teacher effectiveness using the Danielson Framework for Teaching.  Create opportunities for on-going teacher/administrator dialogue including Goal Setting Meetings, informal and formal observations, Mid-Year Review, and End of Year Evaluation.

Through grade level meetings determine the professional development needs of our staff.


To continue to supplement classroom instruction with online resources, including ReflexMath,  Lexia Core 5, IXL Math, and Reading A-to-Z Kids.

To use the school computer lab, iPad carts, and wireless lap-top cart to extend learning in and out of the regular classroom.

To coordinate the library and computer lab schedules to allow the library clerk to deliver increased technology to all students in conjunction with what the classroom teachers are doing.


 Culture and Climate

To maintain the frequency of grade level meetings to bi-weekly, including separate meetings for the unified arts and pupil services.

Include outside agencies such as TEAM and VITAHLS to promote the mental and physical health of our students and offer additional programs to our students and their families.

Utilize the Child-Study-Team (CST) model to establish SMART goals for academic, behavior and/or social needs of at-risk students.
