Parameters (Guiding principles)
School Improvement Plans will always be consistent with the Strategic Plan of the District.
No new program or service will be accepted unless it is consistent with the strategic Plan, benefits clearly justify costs, and provisions are made for staff development and program evaluation.
No program or service will be retained unless it continues to make an optimal contribution to the mission and the benefits continue to justify the costs.
Budgeted expenditures will not exceed budgeted revenues for normal operating expenses.
Behavior which demeans the dignity or self-worth of any individual or group will not be tolerated.
We will continue to develop partnerships with families, municipalities, businesses and elected officials to secure sufficient resources and assure their effective use to achieve our mission and objectives.
We will engage all members of our partnership to integrate, reinforce and assess the character traits of responsibility, trustworthiness, citizenship, caring, fairness and respect to address those social issues which negatively impact learning.
We will ensure all instructional staff fully implement the standards-aligned curriculum, utilize assessment data, differentiate instruction and apply appropriate interventions to engage each student in meeting or exceeding district and state standards.
We will design a system that enables students to explore aspirations, talents and interests in order to set challenging, personalized goals and confidently make successful transitions toward further learning and meaningful endeavors of their choice.
We will capitalize on the opportunities provided by growth and technological innovation to design facilities, learning environments and delivery systems to best achieve our mission and objectives.
