The superintendent will lead the administrative team in developing an action plan to provide a school culture that develops socially and emotionally intelligent students who are self-aware and confident. During the 2021-2022 school year, a school-wide social and emotional health initiative will support an equitable environment that empowers all students to achieve their potential. By the end of the year, all staff will be trained in research-based and tested social and emotional health practices, and instructional activities will be reflected in monthly lesson plans. Teacher observations by the administrative team will cite their effective use, and survey results will illustrate implementation. Additionally, building activities will support the social and emotional health initiative and goals.
The superintendent will lead the administrative team in developing an action plan to guide the on-going, district-wide Differentiated Instruction initiative in grades K-8. During the 2021-2022 school year, through training and observation feedback, teachers will be provided with support in order to modify the content, process, and product within their instructional plans.
By the end of the 2021-2022 school year, student data, across all grade levels and subgroups, will illustrate a 20% increase in the number of students scoring at or above proficiency on the spring 2022 state assessments compared to the fall 2021 state assessments and/or the spring 2022 STAR 360 assessments compared to the fall 2021 STAR 360 assessments. Additionally, all teacher summative evaluations will illustrate the effective use of differentiated strategies to increase student academic achievement and engagement.
The superintendent will lead the administrative team in developing an action plan that will help all students successfully transition back to the previously established academic school schedule and additional approved activities. As evidenced by pre- and post- surveys, students will report positive attitudes about their attendance in school. Additionally, the average yearly attendance of 95% (FY 2020 & 2021) will increase to at least 97% by the end of the year, which is the average yearly attendance pre-COVID19.
