Proposed Goals (in plain English)1. We will attract and retain more students.2. The students that we have will stay with us, attend school more often, and will improve in their behavior.3. More of our graduates will be prepared for college and career.4. To ensure that all students are making sufficient progress, we will monitor achievement based on Common Core measures in ELA and Math.5. We will expect English Learners to reclassify within five years.6. To ensure that we are actualizing our mission to inspire students to solve real-world problems, we will engage students in service learning projects tied to the Common Core standards.7. To ensure that we are actualizing our mission and our values, we will invite students, parents, and staff to provide us with feedback through surveys. 12
