From the Desk of the Principal
Theory of Action
Implement our selected reading, writing and mathematics programs and linked instructional strategies
Use in-depth assessments to collect multiple layers and types of data for each student and subgroup (grade level, race and gender)
Set rigorous end of quarter and end of year outcomes for each grade level, use curriculum maps and aligned assessments to track student progress
Provide the systems/structures needed for ongoing job embedded professional development and collaboration
Focus on scaffolding and differentiation of instruction and continue to develop and implement linked tiers of intervention and support for each student
Monitor and evaluate student progress towards learning outcomes using both qualitative and quantitative data
Continue to develop and build relationships and partnerships with each student and family
Create extended learning options at school and at home that address academic and social, emotional goals
Effectively allocate resources while procuring additional funding and materials
Then we will…
Establish an academically rich learning environment (which includes both data collection and analysis in order to differentiate instruction) that fosters personal, social, and emotional growth for each and every student.
