The Performance Improvement Leadership Team serves, supports and builds the capacity of students, parents, community members, teachers, principals, and administrators to achieve the organization's mission, vision and goals.
Our commitments provide clarity on how we will serve and support our District and its schools in order to improve the learning of every student. These commitments guide our collective and individual work and define how each person on our team will contribute to improvement. Each member of Performance Improvement leadership made a pledge to honor these commitments to achieve our goals of College and Career Preparation and Success and Inclusive Excellence. Our commitments clearly outline the "what." The "how" is determined by departments and schools adhering to our values of autonomy, innovation and creativity.
Educators will work in collaborative teams rather than working in isolation.
Collaborative teams implement a guaranteed and viable curriculum.
Collaborative teams monitor student learning through an ongoing assessment process that includes frequent, team-developed common formative assessments.
Educators use the results of common assessments to:
Improve individual practice;
Build the team's capacity to achieve its goals; and
Intervene and enrich on behalf of students.
The District provides a systematic process for intervention and extension.
Apply our equity lens to all that we do.
