  • Improve student access to non-core subjects (specials).
  • Provide students with learning experiences which will strengthen their individuality, initiative, and creativity.
  • Ensure educators know and use best practices of instruction and assessment.
  • Monitor and assess each student’s progress for the purpose of improving student achievement.
  • Make data driven decisions regarding curriculum and instruction.
  • Integrate technology strategically and consistently in the learning process.
