    What would we do differently
    What Would We Do Differently?

    • Face-to-face input from 5th grade teachers, rather than relying on written survey (esp. for the girls class)

    • Take more time to analyze mix of students.

    • Informational parent meeting in spring of 5th grade year.

    • Subject area-specific training.
