    District Goals 


    Goal One:

    Continued focus on student achievement for all students, with an emphasis on closing achievement gaps, specialized student programs that reside in the least restrictive environment, and ongoing use of differentiated instruction, as evidenced through the data analysis of all standardized assessments and the creation of baseline data that can be utilized to measure District growth and improvement opportunities.

    Goal Two:

    Optimize the effectiveness of teaching and learning, through the increased infusion of technology in all settings, as measured by the SAMR (Substitution, Augmentation, Modification, and Redefinition) Model, and the successful completion, submission and recognition as a Future Ready School at Washington Township High School.

    Goal Three:

    Continue to prioritize staff communication with parents and students through the frequent and ongoing use of technology that provides information on coursework, assessments, homework projects, school/classroom events, and any other school related information.

    Goal Four:

    Ensure and enhance the fiscal stability of the District as we face the possibility of decreased state funding by focusing on Public/Private Partnerships and the developments of a Districtwide Strategic Plan, to ensure that student achievement and student programs remain a top priority.
