    Campus Leadership
    Principal
    The principal is responsible for the daily operation and leadership of the campus, remains informed and updated about all aspects of the instructional programs to ensure that there is a continuous focus on improving student academic performance, and works with the staff, board, and community to provide the very best curriculum planning for the district.

    Professional Development Planning
    Effective professional development is ongoing and based on individual and campus needs. Teachers and administrators use multiple data sources (including student, campus, and district achievement data from DMAC, AEIS, AYP, and personal proficiency data from STaR Chart and PDAS) to plan individual and campus technology goals. Using information from campus improvement plans from every campus in the district, the district’s technology plan, Texas’ Long-Range Plan for Technology, and interviews from the week three assignment, every staff member needs training and/or show evidence of effective use in:
    Evaluation Planning
    Evidence of effective use and integration is shown through lesson plans, online sharing, professional development documentation, campus principal walk-through and PDAS documentation, staff meeting presentations, and improved student achievement. Each campus principal is responsible for implementing a system of accountability and evaluating campus improvement. The cycle is continuous with updates to the campus improvement plan at least once a year.
    The Technology Department, together with the district technology committee, continually monitors and updates technology improvements and professional development needs. All stakeholders identified in the organization chart, plus community members and businesses, are asked to provide ongoing input and make recommendations for improvement in an annual survey. Local improvements are compared to state and national improvements annually.
