B04 School leadership team will meet a minimum of twice a month. The team will monitor the implementation of the school improvement plan/SIG plan through Indistar.
TCS held a productive meeting this week (9/18/19). TCS discussed topics ranging from the district’s ESOL plan/implementation to afterschool ILT. Team members also provided grade-level updates. The process of reviewing and reassessing existing Indistar indicators was initiated. Remember Indistar tasks should be reflective of the District Improvement Plan as it is a living, breathing document. Short-term tasks should be detailed enough to ensure goals are met, if not exceeded. Respective departments and leaders should routinely report out with data and formulated next steps to ensure everyone is aware of the progress being made. Indistar tasks should also be routinely reviewed to determine if revisions are needed to achieve the goals outlined in the DIP.
Response: We have completed the reassessment of the Indistar Tasks and will continue to review and revise them. We will begin assessing indicators monthly.
F01 (School & LEA) School staff will provide ongoing mechanisms for family and community engagement to develop partnerships that benefits students.
Kudos to the leadership and staff at Taliaferro County Schools for another wonderful “Jaguar Futures Day”! According to a recent policy brief from the National Education Association (NEA), “when schools, parents, families, and communities work together to support learning, students tend to earn higher grades, attend school more regularly, stay in school longer, and enroll in higher level programs”. These collaborative efforts will ensure students are provided access to opportunities and information that will lead to success in college and career. Kudos!
Response: Thank you for the kudos. Our faculty and staff work hard each day to ensure we have engaging and educational opportunities for all.
