OUR PURPOSE: To create a culture of accountability that achieves the best academic and developmental outcomes for each student.
In order to fulfill our purpose, we are engaged in continued discussion of the following questions as part of our professional collaboration and work to increase student achievement:
- What is it that students need to know, understand, and be able to do in each course or curricular area?
- How will we know when students know what they need to know? How do we best assess student learning for each course or curricular area?
- How do we help those students who are not successful in learning all that they need to learn?
- How do we help those students who learn what they need to know but may be capable of extending that learning even further?
Teachers of all grade levels and departments meet regularly and engage in ongoing work around curriculum, instruction, and assessment. The website is part of our continuing efforts to involve and inform all of our stakeholders— staff, students, parents, and community members— as we work collaboratively to create a culture of accountability that achieves the best academic and developmental outcomes for each student.
