Strategy 1

  • Collaborative teams will regularly utilize the division’s Planning and Pacing Guides and State Standards of Learning to focus the work of the instructional cycle to ensure high-quality instruction, meaningful learning experience, and purposeful assessment for all students.  Collaborative teams will take collective responsibility for the learning and achievement of students with disabilities.

Strategy 2

  • Teachers will implement a Multi-Tiered System of Supports to meet the individual academic needs of all students.

Strategy 3

  • Teachers will incorporate WICOR - Writing, Inquiry, Collaboration, Organization and Reading strategies into their daily instruction.

 

Caring Culture Goal

  • The May PBIS survey will show growth in the following three areas:
    • When asked if they feel accepted for who they are by teachers and staff all students will provide an answer of 3 or above.  3% of our students gave the rating of a 1 or a 2 in the fall PBIS survey.
    • When asked about how well they know the other students in their TA  all students will provide an answer of a 3 or above.  Approximately 36% gave the rating of a 1 or a 2 in the fall PBIS survey.
    • When asked how many adults at Lanier they think they can trust to talk to no student will respond with a 0. Twenty-one percent of the students who responded in the fall shared that they didn’t trust any of the staff enough to talk to them.

Strategy 1

  • All staff members will increase their capacity to engage in culturally and linguistically responsive teaching practices.

Strategy 2

  • All staff members will focus on creating community and strengthening relationships with students and families.

Strategy 3

  • We will build students’ sense of belonging and self-efficacy.

 

Access & Opportunity Goal

  • The gap between the total Black student enrollment and Black student enrollment in Honors Math and/or Honors English will be 1% or less.
  • The gap between the total Hispanic student enrollment and Hispanic student enrollment in Honors Math and/or Honors English will be 8% or less.

Strategy 1

  • Teachers will engage in ongoing, job-embedded professional learning on technology integration that is personalized, and designed to promote skill transfer. Experiences must marry student needs/interests with teachers’ interests, needs, and classroom settings.  Teachers will use technology to engage all students in rigorous activities.

Strategy 2

  • Our community will learn more about Growth Mindset so that we can all apply it to our learning.
