The district is in the process of writing a new strategic plan. Draft Strategic Plan Available for Review
To clearly define our path and frame our agenda, we have established five goals for 2016:
Goal 1. Every classroom will have a highly effective educator led by highly effective administrators.
School improvement begins and ends with outstanding classroom teaching. We will focus on ensuring that our students are challenged and inspired every day by master educators.
Goal 2. All students will read at or above grade level by the end of third grade.
In order to ensure that every student succeeds, we must strive to prevent reading failure from the start of our students’ educational experience. A focus on early literacy will help us to fulfill our mission by providing our K–3 teachers with critical, job-embedded professional development opportunities that are designed to improve their instructional practice in the teaching of literacy.
Goal 3. Schools will continue to close the achievement gap for all students, with a particular focus on English language learners and students with disabilities.
We will demand high expectations of all students, and provide strong support systems to meet their unique learning needs.
Goal 4. All students will graduate college- and career-ready.
In order to compete in the expanding global economy, attain professional success, and achieve personal fulfillment, all Red Clay students must graduate well-prepared for the academic and nonacademic challenges of life after high school.
Goal 5. Parents and community members will be engaged in the education of Red Clay students.
To ensure student success, we will work to build lasting relationships between our schools and the Red Clay community as we engage families in meaningful and culturally respectful ways.
