Dear Parents and Guardians,
Each week our teachers and counselors meet in Professional Learning Teams (PLTs) to analyze student performance data and make decisions about how our program can best meet the diverse needs of our students. We focus our meetings on four essential questions:
1) What is it that we want students to know? 2) How do we know they know it? 3) What do we do if they don't know it? 4) What will we do to continue to challenge our students?
On six Fridays during the year, we release students at 12:00 pm. Early Release Days are used for Professional Development related to achieving our school improvement plan goals.
We feel that this additional protected time for professional collaboration allows us to better serve our students and will have an impact on their academic growth and proficiency. We have increased our student achievement each year for the last three years, and this is due in part to our implementation of PLTs. If you have questions about our program or our use of Professional Learning Teams to increase student achievement, please feel free to email me.
We appreciate your support of our school and of our PLT effort.
Dr. Kengie Bass, Principal
