|Behaviors that we are not able to meet the student needs|
Navigating the systems to access services for parents is a problem
EISE has not been funded to provide services to assist students, so when they get to elementary they aren't able to cope
Contracted staff are not able to deal to the level that really helps district staff and/or students
|Have mental health counselors on staff|

Students with disabilites tend to have large breaks in certain subject areas
|Alternate schedules. Maker spaces. Good relationships with teachers|
Reduce time pulled out of classes
Need to be able to mine data that will be beneficial. May need to hire a data analyst to work with staff.
|4. Allowing teachers and staff to have sufficient time to collaborate, review data, and develop strategies to support students to stay on track to graduate.||PHS has many electives. CTE classes. PL time. Classifed need to be used more in the instructional process.||Students lose interest in not knowing how what they are learning applies to their lives|
Need more PL time and collaboration time without pulling teachers out of their class time with students.

Castle property and partnering with local forestry groups. Outdoor school has accommodated students with disabilities.
