Curriculum Update


April 2005


We will improve student achievement on District Assessments.


        In order to meet the goal established by the Creswell School District of achieving student improvement as measured on assessments, the components of this goal were identified for tracking on a month-by-month basis.  They are comprised of:


1.  Content Committee activities.

        A.  The Social Studies committee will wrap up soon.  I am awaiting final revisions to k-5 outcomes and assessments.  I have book orders from the high school and we will be reviewing those on 4-13-05.


2.  Staff training or inservice.

        A.  I will be training at the high school on 4-11-05 with mostly elective content areas.  Elective areas will start data collections on assessments asap.

          B.  Selected administrators and I will be attending a training session on 4-14-05 to plan for the 2004-2007 Continuous Improvement Plan.  Following that, we will meet with staff and outline the assessment data we will use to evaluate where our highest priorities exist for improvement.


3.  Developing a District Gradebook

        A.  This goal is met.


4.  Recognizing staff and students

        a.  Board presentations by staff and/or students

        b.  Incentives for curriculum sharing
