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 - 1, 5, 6 (expand to view details)

    View Full List/Descriptions of Indicators

    Indicator 1. INCREASE THE PERCENTAGE OF STUDENTS, FAMILIES, STAFF, AND PARTNERS WHO REPORT FEELING LIKE A VALUABLE MEMBER OF THE SCHOOL OR SCHOOL SYSTEM COMMUNITY

    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

  • As we progress through our Strategic Plan, we have laid the foundation to build teachers’ capacity to improve student success and built an awareness around teaching the whole child.  For the 2019-2020 school year, we have integrated our action steps to include PYP into all content areas to encourage our students to develop a love for learning through taking action and inquiring about the world around them. 

    We expect to see students happily coming to school for Morning Meetings, learning about their emotions and how to resolve conflict, persevering to solve problems by working together, and interacting positively with others. We expect to see staff working to meet the needs of the whole child, collaborating and learning from each other to grow themselves both personally and professionally, and creating a space filled with positive student recognition throughout the school building. We expect to see teachers collecting and analyzing student data, and working with resource teachers to plan instruction that meets the needs of all of our students.  

    Overall, all stakeholders will be working together to create a warm and welcoming environment where students feel valued, respected, and safe to take risks and grow to become lifelong learners.
