Principal's Note - SAIL - School Improvement Process
We use a school improvement process called SAIL (Student Achievement in Learning) to drive our work. This process asks us to look at data, reflect on our current teaching practices and make improvements based on what we know about what makes the biggest difference for our learners. This is the process we have used for 5 years in determining what our next steps as a school.
We have had such a strong start as a staff in working on our goals this year. Our focus is growing our collaboration on culturally responsive teaching, growing our collaboration to plan instruction and growing the student discourse in our classrooms.
We will keep you posted and share more information throughout the year!
