Strategies for Improvement

"Without continual growth and progress, such words as improvement, achievement, and success have no meaning."

How Do We Plan to Improve Instruction, Curriculum, and Student Achievement?

District initiatives are based on research-based practices. Staff regularly research, identify, and implement strategies that have the most impact on student engagement, and therefore achievement. Our focus is to have all staff operate with racial equity, cultural competency, and best practice. Curriculum is designed around arts integration, interdisciplinary connections, student voice, technology integration, relevancy, and value.

Strategies included, but not limited to, are: 

  • Differentiation
  • Team Teaching
  • Mass Personalization
  • Partnerships/Collaboration
  • Courageous Conversations
  • Cooperative Learning
  • Circle
  • Brain-Based Learning 
  • Education Assistant Supports (General, Title, and Special Education)
