Action Plan

Goal

Staff will increase professional knowledge and implementation of HSE21 Best Practices through continued professional development by the end of the 2016-2017 school year.


As instructional practices and knowledge increase, scores on NWEA and ISTEP will also increase.

School Wide Efforts

  • Focused Math PD led by Math Leaders
  • Technology Integration conversations led by Design Team
  • Collaboration PD Cycles focusing on the idea of parts and whole

Fundamental Classroom Conditions Supporting Diversity


  • Each teacher or team will choose 2-3 anchor texts with a focus on diversity to use throughout the school year by tying them into ELA Units of Study.


  • Every classroom will have a Peer Buddy classroom. One area of focus for each buddy pairing will be conflict resolution. Teachers will work to ensure that all classrooms are paired across grade levels.


  • Continue our One Book, One School initiative by choosing another text which focuses on everyday heroes. Our goal first semester will be to showcase student learning. Our goal second semester will be a service learning project tied to our theme.
