  • Overview of School LAND Trust Program 2012-2013

The goals for the year were discussed.

Goal 1:  Students will show progress in Math, Language Arts, and Science. Progress will be measured by standardized tests (where                applicable) and/or other assessments.

Goal 2:  Provide for more use of technology in the classroom and broaden opportunities for students to integrate, explore, and apply                technology.

Goal 3: Teachers will be given more professional development time to enhance Planned Learning Community (PLC) functions.  Teachers will use the time to generate benchmark assessments which will drive classroom instruction.

Goal 4:  Implementation of common core standards.  Funds will be made available to purchase materials which promote common core                concepts.

  •  Plans and Goals for next year will remain essentially the same as last year with minor modifications including: 
    • Goal 1 - Trust Lands will not fund any TRAC classes - but focus on the core subjects. 
    • Goal 2 - Continued technology support.
    • Goal 3 - Additional Planned Learning Community (PLC) time will also include work on the school improvement plan & accreditation needs.
    • Goal 4 - To further enhance common core implementation materials, training, and conference costs will be included.
