8. What will we do next?  We will seek out support from local businesses and community members to develop partnership programs that can help our school to offer new programs and technologies.  We will provide teachers with multifaceted PLC opportunities. They will collaborate with their subject areas, grade levels, and interdisciplinary teams to use data to identify and address the specific needs of our students.  We will use the new Edsby gradebook system to increase levels of parent/family involvement and communication amongst all stakeholders.
