2016 – 2017 District Goals

  1. Curriculum and Instruction: To improve the academic achievement of students in all grade levels, and in all demographic categories, through the implementation of the Year 2 strategies of our Five Year Strategic Vision Plan. Instructional leadership teams will be established in every school for purposes of progress monitoring and data analysis. In addition, the district will utilize a new learning management system called CANVAS to allow students, teachers, and parents the ability to communicate, collaborate, and share resources.

  2. Professional Development: Establish the Professional Development and Resource Center (PDRC) for teachers and staff to participate in relevant and meaningful professional learning opportunities that are driven by district and individual needs.

  3. Technology: Continue our Technology One-to-One program and expand the use of online curricular components in all academic areas. In addition, the district will provide computer centers in all second grade classrooms in an effort to integrate 21st century skills at the lower grade levels.

  4. Central Registration: In an effort to increase the efficiency and accuracy of the student registration process, the district will establish a Central Registration site beginning September 2016. The goal is to streamline the registration process for parents/guardians through an online portal and central location.

  5. Security: Maintain a safe and secure learning environment, including physical security, facility safety and a reduction in the amount of violence, vandalism, and harassment, intimidation and bullying, through various school based positive behavior programs and initiatives.

  6. Finance: Operate the district in an efficient and effective manner, ensuring fiscal prudence and proper allocation of resources to the various educational programs. Central Administration will continue to seek avenues to contain and/or reduce costs of all school district expenses to best represent the interests of our taxpayers, while providing quality educational programs for our students. During the 2016 – 2017 school year, the superintendent will propose a budget for the 2017 – 2018 school year that meets, or is below, the established 2% cap.
