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 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

  • Pershing Hill is a dynamic community of students, parents, and staff.  Our goals will continue to be aligned with strategies that work to overcome our challenges by capitalizing on our numerous assets.  Students and families that transfer to PHES will be greeted and welcomed by a staff that recognizes the unique needs of military-connected children.  Students will feel supported and cared for by the PHES staff; and we will support families by upholding the expectations of the Interstate Compact on Educational Opportunity for Military ChildrenThe Compact ensures that children of military families receive the same opportunities for educational success as other children, and are not penalized or delayed in achieving their educational goals by inflexible administrative and bureaucratic practices.  

    As we work to increase the percentage of students meeting or exceeding expectations on standardized assessments in math and reading, we will welcome children as they are, where they are, and move them forward with compassion and thought.  Recognizing the variety of educational experiences that our children bring with them, we will ensure that our students are challenged at their instructional level and moved forward as they reach their academic milestones. 

    Ultimately, when our students leave us, we expect that they will have progressed to a level that will lead them to future success.  If our Pershing Hill students are respectful, thoughtful, and contributing members of their community, we will have done our small part to help them realize their dreams.
