Strategic Plan Indicators

  • After each school leadership team reflected on its school culture, community, and the key contributing factors to student growth, they used this information to select the Strategic Plan Indicators that would have the greatest positive impact for their students.  Each school was directed to select two to six indicators on which to focus during the 2018-19 school year.  Certainly, we all know that if we focus narrowly and deeply, we are more likely to realize positive results.  The indicators that this school’s leadership team selected are noted below.

  • Strategic Plan Indicator(s) Chosen by the School - 3, 5, 6 (expand to view details)

    Indicator 3.  INCREASE THE USE OF RESTORATIVE PRACTICES IN SCHOOL AND OFFICES

    Indicator 5. INCREASE THE PERCENTAGE OF STUDENTS WHO READ ON OR ABOVE GRADE LEVEL BY THE END OF SECOND GRADE

    Indicator 6. INCREASE THE PERCENTAGE OF STUDENTS IN GRADES 3-8 WHO MEET OR EXCEED EXPECTATIONS ON STANDARDIZED READING, LANGUAGE ARTS, AND MATHEMATICS ASSESSMENTS

Strategic Journey

  • Throughout the next 3 years, schools will focus on their chosen Strategic Plan Indicators as the drivers to increase student engagement and achievement within their schools.  They will choose strategies to help them grow or increase within each indicator and will monitor and evaluate the student and school changes that take place along the journey.  Below you will see what this school imagines their students and school to look like in 2021 after having focused and worked on their chosen indicators for three years.

Our Vision of Success: 2021

  • In the Fall of 2020, Ferndale Early Education Center will be transitioning to an ECI and Pre-Kindergarten center. Our Kindergarten students will be moving to our feeder school, George Cromwell Elementary. Our goal is to support the whole child and family by offering a positive, healthy, safe, engaging, supportive, and rigorous environment for their first school experience.  

    Members of the Ferndale School Community will see developmentally appropriate practices, lessons to support students’ social-emotional growth, opportunities to promote early literacy and math skills, and parent-school partnerships to ensure academic success.
