      Provide curriculum and instruction in core subjects.
    • 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.
