Goals


All students will meet Arizona College and Career Readiness Standards with a score of Proficient or Highly Proficient in the areas of English Language Arts (ELA) and Math as measured by mandated Arizona State testing. In ELA, the school's performance on the State test will be 20% above the Arizona State student average as measured by the State test of the 2018-2019. School-wide ELA instructional emphasis will be in the area of informational text using details and supporting evidence. In Math, the school's performance on the State test will be 25% above the Arizona State student average as measured by the State test of the 2018-19 school year. School-wide instructional emphasis will be in the area of geometric principles.

Assessment:

Data collection from assessments will be used in the areas of Reading, Writing, Math, Science, and Technology to predict future performance of individual students and grade levels. The data will be used to diagnose problems, develop solutions, and create plans.

Students failing to meet the Arizona College and Career Readiness Standards (AzCCRS) will be assessed every three weeks to ascertain progress and adjust their individual improvement plan.

Students who are at a “Highly Proficient” level will be identified. Accelerated learning plans and strategies will be developed and continually monitored.

Staff Development:

All teachers will be trained in the areas of Whole Child Education, AzCCRS), The 4 Cs (Collaboration, Communication, Creativity, and Critical Thinking) and Global Competence Indicators as identified by P21.org, Differentiated Instruction, Anti-Bullying, Project Based Learning, Brain Based Instructional Techniques, and STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, and Math).

Technology:

The articulated Technology Standards will be taught at each grade level. An electronic portfolio will be used to monitor students’ performance in meeting the grade level technology standards by the end of the 2018-19 school year. Keyboarding standards will be taught and assessed at each grade level.

Safe/Secure School:

The Emergency Plan will be reviewed and practiced during the school year. Each classroom will be a need-fulfilling classroom. Classroom meetings and activities will be scheduled to enhance the classroom/school environment.
