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.

  • 2018-2019 Strategic Plan Indicator(s) Chosen by the School - 2, 5, 6 (expand to view details)

    View Full List/Descriptions of Indicators

    Indicator 2. INCREASE THE PERCENTAGE OF STUDENTS WHO REPORT THAT AACPS STAFF CARE FOR AND SUPPORT THEM

    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

  • By the end of the 2021 school year, the following student routines and practices will be observed: participation in Morning Meeting, application of Second Step lessons, creation of relaxation stations and implementation of positive student referrals. Students will see and feel that teachers care deeply for their well-being, and will be able to identify at least one staff member who they can go to for help with a problem. Students will report that their “voice” is heard by their teachers, and that they feel safe and comfortable coming to school every day. (Indicators 1, 2 and 3)

    Families and stakeholders will report that Cape St. Claire Elementary is a welcoming and nurturing environment for students and visitors. Staff will report that they feel like valued members of the Cape St. Claire team. They will observe and participate in a high level of collaboration and cooperation taking place to grow our students. (Indicator 1)

    Teachers will deliver writing instruction that is tailored to the specific needs of students based on data gathered from diagnostic tools, progress monitoring and conferences. Students will become confident readers and writers and will be able to share their published works with authentic audiences. Students will also be able to describe how they became successful readers and writers: through literacy activities inside and outside of the classroom. Teachers and parents will see that their efforts to promote a culture of literacy have helped to grow our students, as evidenced by the successful achievement of reading and writing standards as measured on district and state assessments, and by positive student discourse about literature and writing. Parents and community members will report student success and help us celebrate meeting our goals. Teachers and parents will report that they see students engaged in reading and writing, and that students are able to apply literacy skills across the curriculum and beyond the school walls.
