• Accelerate Learning  

    ACCELERATE the learning for ALL students who perform below grade level, bringing them up to grade level by the end of the school year. ALL struggling students will be afforded the opportunity to receive specific, focused, and individualized interventions to ensure they perform at grade level in all academic areas by the end of the school year. Further, we expect Special Education students to meet all Individual Education Program (IEP) goals each year. We expect English Language Learners (ELL) to make at least a year's growth in language acquisition and exit the ELL program in, at most, five years. We expect ELL students who exit the ELL program at the end of 7th grade to graduate from high school in four years.
