ONE PHILOSOPHY

We are one school system – not a system of schools


TWO CORE BELIEFS

Positive Relationships With All
High Expectations For All


THREE BIG Goals

Send every elementary student to middle school on grade level by 2012
Send every middle school student to high school on grade level by 2014
Graduate every senior with college/career readiness skills by 2016


FOUR KEYS TO UNLOCK LEARNING

Laser-like focus on achievement
Extraordinary amount of non-fiction writing
Collaborative scoring
Penalty for failing is doing the work over


FIVE MAIN THINGS

Curriculum Alignment...
To reach our goals, our students must master the Kentucky Core Academic Standards. We constantly adjust to ensure our curriculum provides each student with repeated opportunities to demonstrate mastery.

Instructional Norms...
There are best practices to student learning; it just does not happen. Ongoing training and support must occur for teachers to rise to the top. One local teacher admitted teaching her heart out, yet consistently being disappointed by her students’ state assessment results. She told me, "Tell me what to do." I owe it to her – and all teachers – to provide the best Professional Development so teachers can be the best and, in turn, their students can be the best.

Professional Learning Community...
When I visited with a Superintendent from another county, I was stunned, as was he, when a star math teacher
  more... visited a colleague’s class and said, "We have been teaching beside each other for 20 years and I had never seen her teach." The closed-door mentality is gone. Professionals must communicate and learn from each other to blend all the strengths together.

Intervention...
Teachers face as many as eight different levels of student skills every day in the classroom. As a result, the academic achievement levels will also differ. Goal-setting and databoards based on MAP (Measure of Academic Progress) help staff identify students and their needs. Those Below Grade Level are scheduled for intervention to bring about progressive growth.

Enrichment...
MAP also provides information on students who are Above Grade Level. This group of students can then be challenged with higher-level courses or other appropriate activities to keep pushing them beyond their potential.
