Our staff has used a variety of methods such as snapshot assessments, report card information and anecdotal observations to establish our Areas of Focus. Our intent is to focus our efforts on identified areas of need in order to improve student achievement. This year, our Areas of Focus are as follows:
In what ways can we improve student achievement in Writing?
To what extent can we improve student achievement in Mathematics?
In what ways can we improve student capacity and competency in solving problems and disputes independently?
Our staff spends time at staff meetings, professional development days, and other meeting times to reflect, discuss, and plan our areas of focus.
