Standard 1 Narrative
Looking back at the indicators in standard one, we feel that our ranking for each indicator is a three. Our evidences for each of these indicators include areas of strength for our school. Our morning Professional Learning Community help us implement a process that helps improve student success, classroom engagement and sustain an atmosphere of rigor and relationships. We engage the different stakeholders through surveys, school-wide student advisories and parent advisory council. We document our work through department action plans, morning PLC minutes, and lesson plans through the tuning process. We display our culture and success by hosting Learning Lab Initiative visits. Our lesson tuning and morning meeting help us to sustain our strengths as a school.
