  • high-performing: a top 10 school district in Louisiana by 2015

  • will attract new students and meet/accelerate the trajectories of all existing students

Cee input priority hows to achieve goal vision
CEE InputPriority “Hows” to Achieve Goal/Vision

  • Staff

  • Performance Accountability

  • Choice/Options

  • Partnerships

  • Other Resources

Cee input how staff
CEE Input: How – Staff

  • hiring the most highly-skilled educators, attract and retain the best teachers

  • attract, develop, and retain human talent

  • attract top talent in education

  • employ only the most competent and committed teachers and principals

Cee input how performance accountability
CEE Input: How – Performance Accountability

  • set goals that are only related to student achievement outcomes

  • actively monitoring and assessing student and school performance

  • setting high expectations for all students, based in the belief that all students can learn and can be effectively led to learn

    • set high expectations for students, faculty, and staff

  • all decisions affecting student outcomes will place the interest of students first

    • increase academic achievement across the board...when we discuss achievement gaps, always include “while raising the bar for all groups”

    • competent and informed governance structures

Cee input how choice options
CEE Input: How – Choice/Options

  • multiple magnets and neighborhood schools

  • provide the appropriate choice of educational opportunities

  • array of effective educational options for magnet, charter, virtual, home, etc. (“choice”)

Cee input how partnerships
CEE Input: How – Partnerships

  • building close community partnerships between students, teachers, families, and community

Cee input priority challenges
CEE Input: Priority Challenges

  • capacity issues; RSD schools holding unfilled space as don't have full enrollments; having to use dollars to add on to existing schools making them too large and creating too long of distances from the communities the families live...

  • capacity issue then leads to transportation issues

  • dis-engaged citizens (especially middle class) who feel they were pushed out of our system through many years of across-town busing

  • lack of neighborhood schools which limits cohesiveness within the student body and limits parent involvement, limits awareness of schools strengths and weaknesses

Cee input priority challenges continued
CEE Input: Priority Challenges continued

  • inability to compete with private schools except in few cases

  • poor performance and graduation rates

  • students unprepared to go to work or on to further education

  • high level of poverty – students in poverty are just as capable as those with more resources, however, we must acknowledge and plan for their real needs which typically are more costly

  • we may need to have lower class sizes district-wide to provide for more individualized attention, may need more remedial services, may need more mentors, etc. than a school district without this demographic profile

  • poor communication

Cee input how other resources
CEE Input: How – Other Resources

  • providing appropriate resources to students and staff

  • financial

  • challenging and developmentally-appropriate curricula

  • innovation

  • outside-the-box thinking

  • active experience-based curriculum that utilizes our unique qualities as a state (culturally, linguistically, and geographically)

  • appropriate learning environment
