What Our Data Tells Us Goal 3: Continuous Improvement of Performance and Quality When we keep our focus narrow, teacher C,I,A improves, thus student achievement improves. Teachers need to expand the use of differentiation strategies in order to meet the strengths and needs of all students. Teachers are using assessment data to drive curricular and instructional decisions.
Specialized instructional programs are making a difference. We need to adjust our curricular pacing in order to prepare students for spring assessments.
How will the Academic and Financial Plan and the schools resources be used for academic achievement? The bulk of our expenditures will be in personnel needed to implement our school programs (07-08, 96% of money spent on personnel, 70% on teachers).
How will the Academic and Financial Plan and the schools resources be used for academic achievement? We will budget for the personnel and supplies needed to maintain a safe, neat and nurturing school that meets the strengths and needs of all students.
How will the Academic and Financial Plan and the schools resources be used for academic achievement? Funds to be expended on professional development, new programs?
Given our scores and data trends… Might our students be ready to go beyond the standards to a richer and more worldly curriculum that continues to engage them in higher level and broader perspective thinking?
What is wonder and discovery? What leads to wonder and discovery?
IBO Mission Statement The International Baccalaureate Organization aims to develop inquiring, knowledgeable, and caring young people who help to create a better and more peaceful world through intercultural understanding and respect.
