We experienced a significant change in administrative and teaching personnel over the past few years. This created a substantial impact on our professional staff and necessitated increased professional activities. To accommodate the needs of our new employees, we are providing structured, site based professional staff development.
Our previous strategic plan focused upon expanding student assessment activities, promoting active engagement of students in learning activities by all teachers through Differentiated Instruction, and identifying and implementing organizational frameworks that will support and enhance the school culture as the school district draws attention to the relationships between the academic, emotional, and social focus of the entire educational program. The Comprehensive Plan for the next six years is currently under development. Elements of assessment, instruction and school culture will continue to be the focus for the foreseeable future.
