Student Achievement for All

2014-2017

Within an Inclusive Setting




Priority 1: Focus on Assessment for, as and of Learning to Improve Student Achievement.

All Gesner Students will attain higher levels of academic success in math and writing.










GESNER PRIORITY 1 – SMART Goal – Every teacher will use assessment for, as and of learning to improve student achievement in math. Each team will explore and use common assessments as needed for each mathematics strand and will compose flexible teaching groups based on this data leading to a 5% increase in students performing at achievement level of 4 in all strands of mathematics. Currently, 15.5% of Kindergarten and grade 1 students performed at achievement level 4. We will enter the student data into a spread sheet to track student progress.
