Goal 2: Students Achieve Academic Success

To maximize student academic potential, we identify student learning strengths and needs through a consistent set of schoolwide instructional practices. We ensure all students are provided access to high-quality, developmentally appropriate, and differentiated academic experiences.

Outcome Metrics

  • Increase student proficiency on state exams
  • Increase student proficiency on district assessments
  • Increase the percentage of students who respond positively to questions about academic confidence

Priority Strategies

  • The best student outcomes are generated by aligned grade-level standards and evidence-based best practices.

    Key activities:

    • Provide quality core instruction aligned to curriculum and state standards.
    • Strengthen instructional practices and systems to increase student achievement to meet and exceed
    • state standards.
    • Define and implement consistent schoolwide practices that support student success.
  • High-quality instruction is essential for all students to achieve academic success. Teachers need high-quality curriculum, instructional materials, and assessments supported by professional learning to deliver effective high-quality instruction.

    Key activities:

    • Regularly assess student learning, and adjust instruction to meet the needs of all learners.
    • Create and communicate a comprehensive plan for adopting and implementing curriculum that is inclusive of special education, multilingual, and highly capable learners.
    • Convene teams of teachers to build and refine curriculum implementation guides.
  • We value our staff and understand their impact on our students. When staff (certificated, classified, and administrators) are provided with ongoing professional development experiences that empower them with the knowledge, skills, and tools necessary to improve their work, they are better able to meet student and community needs.

    Key activities:

    • Ensure all staff receive high-quality professional learning.
    • Provide district, site, and individual pathways for professional development.
    • Provide staff collaboration opportunities to identify and align instructional practices to support students’ academic, behavioral, and social-emotional growth.
