How Did We Get There? Essential Question: How is the use of this resource improving student performance in a measureable way over a continuous period of time? Leadership at all levels embraced the goal of rigor in reading and math for all. Expectations and deep-rooted beliefs required systemic change to ensure student success. Spirit of the Moose Emphasis was placed on people and processes, not programs. Increased salary schedule (10 th Highest in KY) and hiring the best candidate with the goal of getting the right people on the bus.
How Did We Get There? Leadership set clear expectations for improvement, provided training, monitored implementation, and followed-up with additional support. The district first established a guaranteed and viable curriculum. Emphasis was placed on literacy and then expanded to include mathematics. The district began to focus more on the progress of each child rather than aggregate data leading to bi-weekly progress monitoring for at-risk students, disaggregating assessment results, determining interventions/next steps.
How Did We Get There? A comprehensive formative assessment program provides the data to support this process. Curriculum Specialists assist teachers in the implementation of effective, research-based strategies. The addition of School Administrative Managers provided principals with increased time to become more focused instructional leaders.
Special Education Program Additional commitments were made to address the needs of the districts disability sub-population. Disability students are included in the regular classroom to the maximum extent possible. – 2003: 48.17% integrated instruction – 2011: 76.56% integrated instruction District personnel analyzed each childs unique situation to ensure accommodations, least-restrictive environment decisions and interventions were congruent with the childs disability and specific needs. LCHS is now a state model for Co-Teaching
