Climate and Culture Year 1 – Students and staff resentful of new mandates Teachers very cautious of new mandated working relationship with LTPs All staff approved of increased level of professional development Students/staff responded very well to new 4X4 schedule
Climate and Culture Year 2 – Teachers have embraced interactive involvement of LTPs Students’ benchmark results show improvement in working towards mastery Students demonstrate a more positive attitude because of increased opportunities for makeup work, one-on-one interaction, and being offered every opportunity to succeed New teachers support new higher standards Increased parental involvement supports student success Increased cooperation between athletics and academics ensures student eligibility
