Superintendent Potter and I have visited all of the schools and have seen excellent instruction taking place in every building. We are encouraged with the progress on our instructional initiatives that we have in place for the 2010‐2011 school year, including the continued implementation of Everyday Math, RTI, Data-Enhanced Instruction, and the beginning work around grade-level expectations and curriculum alignment, K-12. We are also pleased at the level of collegial and collaborative conversation taking place among staff through district-wide and school-based PLC’s.
The administrators and staff in the most successful schools embrace change as exciting and challenging rather than intimidating and threatening. These educators (change agents) seem to understand that schools today need to be retooled in order to keep pace with a changing society and economy. Keep up the hard work and remain focused helping each student be successful!
