District Goals

  • By the year 2025,

  • 80% of Shelby County Schools students are career and college ready,

  • 90% of students graduate from high school and,

  • 100% of students who graduate will enroll in a post-secondary learning opportunity.


Idlewild’s Goals 2014-2015


The SCS Literacy Framework for 2014-15 contains three critical areas where improvements are needed. To have a

coherent and aligned district literacy program, schools will need to make decisions about how to improve their instructional

programs in the following areas:

  • K-3 Reading

  • 4-12 Writing

  • RTI2 Reading Intervention


Overview of Literacy Priority Areas

K-3 READING

Goal: To ensure that all students in grades K-3 acquire the foundational skills needed for them to be proficient readers at the end of third grade.

4-12 WRITING

Goal: To ensure that all students in grades 4-12 acquire the foundational skills needed for them to be proficient writers at the end of each grade level.

RTI2 READING INTERVENTION

Goal: To ensure that all students receive the support they need to be successful readers and writers.

    literacy and math? How can we ensure that all students experience high levels of success?

  • What tools, strategies, and resources do we currently have in place to assist us in reaching our goals?
