School Improvement Plan (SIP) Goals

Goal 1 (Equity) - We will increase students' engagement and sense of belonging in school by focusing on cultural representation in materials and school activities.


Action Steps:

  • Please take a moment to share how/if your family celebrates holidays through this two-question survey.
  • Each month our leadership & equity team reaches out to 1-2 students in each grade level to conduct interviews. We review the data collected from these as a staff and use it to drive changes for inclusivity
  • We are compiling a calendar and resources about the holidays and celebrations our students and families observe to ensure all are included and acknowledged
  • Review of materials for cultural representation
