In February the board approved the district’s priorities and goals, which were used to develop the improvement plan.
Priorities are focused on continuing to build and implement a guaranteed viable curriculum, fostering an instructional environment that supports innovation and special education with a focus on social emotional learning, a staff report said.
“The operational priorities will focus on strategic operations and long-range planning, and giving greater priority to community building,” the report said. The district improvement plan details strategies to achieve administrative goals within each of these priorities.
Moving the development and approval process to spring enables district and individual school plans to be in place prior to the beginning of the next school year, thus allowing schools to open the year with a plan in place instead of devoting time to this task in the opening weeks, the report said, adding this timeframe also better facilitates professional development to ensure staff are knowledgeable of the plans and goals.
