In September 2017, the school board, by resolution, established performance targets for us to aim improvement efforts. Building principals and program administrators will review the current available data and discuss efforts made during the 2017-2018 school year to target improvements toward these five targets (retrospective view). They will also review the efforts moving forward that are aimed at further improvement in outcomes of these targets (prospective view).
The data presented to the board comes with it some caveats; it will not be the same as the state data that will be released in the late summer or fall.
The plan is to address each of the areas below in order using the following protocol:
1) Presentation of preliminary data (5 min)
2) Presentation of District-wide improvement efforts (4 min)
3) Board Questions (2 min)
4) Presentation of School-based improvement efforts, retrospective, and prospective (4 min each school)
5) Board Questions (2 min)
By 2020 the rate of chronic absenteeism, defined as missing more than 18 school days, will be no greater than 10%.

Student growth percentiles in ELA and Math will exceed 50 in each grade level.

Beginning in 2017-2018 High School freshman course failure (first attempt) will be below 10% for Core Classes (Math, English & Science).
By 2021 the overall district four-year graduation rate will be at or above 85%
