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.

  • 2019-2020 Strategic Plan Indicator(s) Chosen by the School - 5, 6 (expand to view details)

    View Full List/Descriptions of Indicators

    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 Plan indicators 3 and 10 were deleted from the current School Improvement Plan. The former plan was written by the previous administrator and included a large number Action Steps for each goal. I encouraged the School Leadership Team to narrow the focus of our School Improvement Plan. We discussed the concept that sometimes "less is more." In addition, we experienced growth in the area of daily student attendance therefore indicator 10 (INCREASE THE PERCENTAGE OF STUDENTS ATTENDING SCHOOL ON A DAILY BASIS) was removed from the plan, yet closely monitored. As a staff, we also chose to delete indicator 3 (INCREASE THE USE OF RESTORATIVE PRACTICES IN SCHOOLS AND OFFICES) because this practice has been institutionalized. Community Circles are incorporated into the master schedule for all K-5 classes. The expectation is that community building circles occur on a daily basis. In addition, all staff has been trained in Restorative Practices level A and B and select staff members have also had training in level C.

    Indicator 10. INCREASE THE PERCENTAGE OF STUDENTS ATTENDING SCHOOL ON A DAILY BASIS

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 coming years, students will feel a sense of accomplishment and success. Through working with our attendance committee, PPW, and staff, and increased student buy-in to incentives such as “HERO” and our “Breakfast Club,” our students and families will increase their understanding of the value of attendance, decreasing absenteeism and tardiness.

    Students will feel confident when reading and solving math problems. Specifically, students will be proficient in their math facts and will be eager to read and participate in class discussions.  Daily instruction will support students’ social-emotional growth, and staff will continue to provide an arts-integrated curriculum that is student-centered and focuses on problem solving in real-world situations.  We will continue to build parent-school partnerships to ensure academic and social success for all.

    After a few years of successful implementation of Community Building Circles and Restorative Practices, students will feel an increase in connectedness within our culture of equity. The natural flow of Restorative Practices around the schoolhouse will create a positive school climate. Adults in and around the school community will have a true understanding that “All Means All” and, as a result, they will value diversity and practice empathy.
