• Strategic Plan Goal 1: Student Growth and Achievement
    On Oct. 10, 2019, members of the team who are working on Goal 1 of the district’s strategic plan provided the Board with a brief update on the status of their efforts to date. This update included information about the Key Performance Indicators (KPIs) they will use to measure and assess progress on their goal, which is to ensure that all students are engaged in a rigorous education resulting in college, career and life readiness. These KPIs include:

    • Grade nine students on track
    • Coursework designed to prepare for college, career and life
    • Readiness
    • Grade-point average
    • Graduation rate
    • Math experience beyond Algebra II
    • PSAT/SAT growth and performance

    In addition, they shared information about the work our teachers are currently doing around curriculum alignment, more specifically the efforts being undertaken to help ensure that we are using fair and consistent grading and assessment practices across the district. During the next four Flexible Learning Days, our teachers will be exploring the purpose of grades and what makes them up. They will also be studying the work of researchers in the field of grading in order to inform their thinking and help them organize the district's grading practices.
