Overall Goals for this School Year:

TARGET GOAL: Our students will increase growth by 2% or more in 2017-18 as measured by K-2 TRC and 3-5 EOGs.

TARGET GOAL: For the 2017-2018 school year, the number of ODRs will be reduced from 105 overall to 95 ODRs (60 school / 35 bus) as well as evidenced by student survey data through the strengthening of character traits and relationships between students and staff.

TARGET GOAL: In the 2017-2018 school year, teachers will implement strategies throughout year through revitalizing parent nights, EOG nights, and out-reach to hard-to-reach families. Through these outreaches, Celeste will increase parent face-to-face participation in parent/teacher conferences. This will be measured by an increase of 10% from first semester to second semester and increasing numbers 19 & 20 on the MTSS evaluation score from Emerging/Developing to operationalizing.
