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.

Administrators to begin selection of Social Studies review team.
August 30.....Reviewed goals within General Staff meeting
August 31.....Met with selected MS and HS content areas to
review 2003-2004 data and encourage continued improvements
August 30-September 2... building administrators met with
content area groups, classroom groups and individual staff to review
2. Staff training or inservice, to include:
a. Learner outcomes
August 31...review with MS/HS science/math departments
b. Presentations to new staff
September 2...Met with new teachers to review process
c. Data gathering
Meetings on 31st and 2nd stressed the importance of having
the district learner outcomes and assessments aligned to a recording
instrument. Noted that the building offices would have the preformatted
documents on hand but that staff needed to make sure their copy was in use
as the school year passed and that they were diligent in keeping them
up-to-date. High priority for principals to double check this piece early
in the year.
3. Developing a District Gradebook
a. Training staff to use the gradebook
Will meet with Mr. Higdon to explore process needed.
August 25...discussed issues pertaining to a "one system"
gradebook as applications differ among buildings
4. Recognizing staff and students
a. Board presentations by staff and/or students
b. Incentives for curriculum sharing
