  • What is Instructional Excellence?

    We will eliminate academic achievement disparities by providing ALL students with rigorous and relevant learning experiences so that they become leaders who create solutions that contribute to the betterment of our global society. We will focus on three key areas: performance, growth and engagement.

     

  • Performance:

    The percentage of ALL CCSD students meeting the college and career readiness benchmarks in English Language Arts and Math as measured on state assessments, will increase by three percentage points annually, over the next four years. In an effort to simultaneously eliminate the achievement disproportionalities by race, the percentage of Black, Brown and Indigenous students meeting the same benchmarks will increase by at least four percentage points annually.

    Growth:

    All CCSD students will see significant growth (60th percentile or higher) in English Language Arts and Math by 2023 as measured by state assessments.

    Engagement:

    The number of students who report feeling engaged in school as measured by the Climate, Safety and Wellness survey will increase by 10 percentage points. Simultaneously, the number of students involved in multiple discipline events will decrease by 10 percentage points and we will work to eliminate the racial disproportionalities within discipline by 2025.
