School Improvement Plan

Outcome goals for this academic school year

School Improvement & Innovation Plan At A Glance

Lanier Middle School | Fairfax County Public Schools | Region 5

End of Year Strategic Outcome, Responsive Instruction

By the end of the year 2016-2017, we will have clearly identified tiers, a common language around each tier, and a draft mechanism for monitoring student progress. We will nurture our culture of highly-engaged classrooms by embracing a uniformed definition for differentiation, scaffolding, and re-teaching, and how this “looks” in each content.

Strategies

  • School-wide use of “student stories”

End of Year Strategic Outcome, Literacy

By the end year 2016-2017, we will have a defined “menu” of literacy strategies for each course around reading, writing, speaking, and reasoning. Reading and writing will be embedded in all curriculums.

Strategies

  • Literacy as a focus in all content areas
  • Teacher goal setting around literacy
  • Peak, schoolwide book read

End of Year Strategic Outcome, Culture and Community

By the end of the year 2016-2017, we will have developed a measurement for and of student grit and perseverance and further refined our Chief Learning Officer mentoring program. We will have administered and assessed a school climate survey and used those results to inform our next steps.

Strategies

  • PBIS realigned
