Addressing this goal first required the initial versions of the CDS Student Handbook and Faculty Handbooks. These have been updated each academic year since the last visit as the school and its stakeholders discover new areas to address or more clarification of policies is required. There has also been a splitting of the handbook into 3 versions for the respective divisions this allows the information to be better tailored to the readers. It is expected that this process will continue indefinitely in addition to this there is also a plan to introduce a Parents Handbook for High School students that addresses the information that will allow Parents to be more involved in the school process.
This has proven to be a large and ongoing challenge in the school. As the demographic data shows within the middle and high school the population is mainly of Korean ethnicity and speak Korean as the first language. Within classrooms and under direct supervision students have no issue with using English however when communicating with peers they often revert to Korean. This has led to continual efforts to modify the language policy so that it encourages the use of English but is also possible to enforce. This is much less of an issue in the First Program where a diverse student population leads to the constant use of English.
The organizational structure of the school has been evolving over the period of the last Action plan as the student body has grown in numbers. It has also seen the growth of the high school from a single grade to the largest Division in the school. This has led to a number of new positions being created each year with the goal of maintaining effective administrative control of both the growing student body and faculty.
The school has continued to increase the amount of technology available within the school in an effort to improve both instruction and communication. Although there have been significant increases in the tools available to both students and faculty there is still a lack of an organized technology plan to allow this technology to be fully utilized. Since 2013-14 it has become mandatory for all high school students to bring a laptop to school. This has freed up the school computers for use in the middle school.
The curriculum has been an area of focus for the last 3 years and there is now in place a standard based curriculum across all three schools. The departments review this yearly in order that it can evolve to better suit the needs of our students.
College counseling has been a major area of growth in the school and one that we are now beginning to see the effects of as the first class of seniors graduate. The US system has been relatively straight forward as the requirements for application are clearly understood. However, the Korean system has proven more of a challenge as our school is in a somewhat unique situation in Korea of being an international school with Korean Accreditation. This has meant that the process has been new to both our school and the Universities. As our students have now been accepted as Early Graduates CDS feels sure that effective college guidance can now be provided to students aiming for either Korean or International Colleges.
The development of the guidance counselor position has led to improvements in the number of disciplinary incidents across the school. By adding the Dean of Student Affairs in Middle School the level of emotional and behavioral counseling has continued to increase.
