School Strategies

  1. In order to impact performance and achievement for all students, staff will collaborate to implement common assessments aligned with curriculum to include any of the following: scoring rubrics, variety of assessment task formats, question phrasing, and balance of assessment literacy and demonstration of content understanding.
  2. In order to impact performance and achievement for all students, staff will construct and use common question stems, common vocabulary, and common process to align instruction and student practices with assessment literacy.
  3. In order to impact performance and achievement for all students, staff will identify key components of The Framework for Teaching and Learning (Charlotte Danielson) to integrate student voice into the classroom: instructional levels, personalization, differentiation, student input into class procedures, student development of assignment rubrics and student responsibility for learning.
  4. In order to impact performance and achievement for all students, Student Services will ensure that face-to-face individual meetings with every student occur 1x/semester to review college and career pathways and student goals (4-year plan, resume, interview preparation, college essay preparation, graduation requirements).  All information will be updated in Naviance.
