  • Finishing up this year…parent survey, recommendations

  • Spring visit from evaluators

Focus:Elevating the Essentials To Radically Improve Student Learning

“Many leaders would rather launch new initiatives, regardless of their effectiveness. Why? Because it distracts them from the harder work of seeing to it that their highest, simplest priorities are implemented – “actually done.”

“The implementation of coherent curriculum; effective lessons; and abundant amounts of purposeful reading, writing, and talking should be our highest priorities.”

“To protect the core, leaders must work diligently to “filter” what comes into the organization- the ceaseless assault of new programs and trainings that seduce employees away from the core – in our case, from actually monitoring and implementing sound curriculum, effective instruction, and authentic literacy.”
