      achievement. This focuses JMS on creating a school environment and culture that focuses on and values learning.
   4. Teachers will continue to engage in planning and professional development days. Teachers will continue to be provided
      sub days to engage in content specific PD that come up throughout the year from district, state, and private sponsors.
      These planning and professional development days addresses the need to:
          ○ create PD to match content area needs,
          ○ refine and implement thematic IDU’s within each grade level involving all core and noncore classes,
          ○ plan how to incorporate GLO’s into the content curriculum,
          ○ plan for differentiated instruction, and
          ○ implement instructional strategies that move students beyond one year of learning.
          ○ provide students more opportunities to engage in hands-on activities.

Goal 3: Successful Systems of Support. The system and culture of Jarrett Middle School works to effectively organize financial, human, and
community resources in support of student success.

Outcome: By the end of three years,                                                                                               Rationale:
May 2018

   1. Consider and plan for ways to increase the amount of GLOs integrated throughout school programs and in the                  See the
      classroom. This goal fulfills the need to increase the student efficacy in their learning and increase student leadership   rationale
      opportunities. Increasing the responsibility and application of GLOs by students will allow teachers the support to focus   imbedded in the
      on classroom instructional practices.                                                                                       “Outcome”
   2. Increase parent school involvement and parent home involvement in their child’s education. Increasing parent &              column related
      stakeholder involvement in student learning will increase student achievement. JMS needs a school environment and           to WASC and
      culture that focuses on and values learning and increasing student achievement. Positive parent involvement in school       CNA areas of
      supports the faculty in the work they do on a daily basis.                                                                  growth.
   3. Support teacher’s professional and classroom technology needs. To prepare our students for college and careers, JMS
      needs to continue to update technology needs. In addition, increasing teacher work efficiency through technology
      ultimately allows more time for classroom planning.
   4. Continue to build teacher efficacy through the implementation of Department Instructional Teams. Department
      Instructional Teams allow teachers the freedom to apply their professional knowledge to solve real-world school issues.

May 2019 and 2020

   1.   Implement ways to increase the amount of GLOs integrated throughout school programs and in the classroom.
   2.   Continue to strive for increased parent school involvement and parent home involvement in their child’s education.
   3.   Continue to support teacher’s professional and classroom technology needs.
   4.   Continue to build teacher efficacy through the implementation of Department Instructional Teams.
