Goal 3 – Social Emotional
During the 2011-2012 school year, the DESSA (DEvereux Student Strengths Assessment) will be administered to all students in the Fall and Spring. By the end of the 2011-2012 school year, our student strengths assessment data will provide us with the ability to make an informed recommendation related to Tier 1, 2, and 3 social emotional learning needs of our students.
Goal 4 - Fiscal Responsibility
In order to ensure the District’s future financial stability, the District will continue to identify revenue enhancements such as staff turnover savings, Medicaid reimbursement funds and energy cost efficiencies. Additionally, the District will continue to identify expenditure reductions through an on-going review of staffing levels and resources. The District seeks to recognize $750,000.00 in funds as a result of these financial practices.
