Goal Areas
 

•  Goal 1 - Continue to strengthen the relationship with Da Vinci Schools as a top priority.  A stronger relationship strengthens our K-12 instructional program and improves the overall quality of life and education for our families and community.  Continue to bridge our two entities at every level - Board, administration, teachers, students and community.

 

•  Goal 2 - Make the articulation of our instructional programs K-12 a top District Priority.  Specifically focus on the transition grades 2 to 3, 5 to 6, and 8 to 9 to ensure that "we begin with the end in mind," and we carefully monitor that each level is providing a strong foundation for the next level to build on.  Work with Da Vinci Schools to develop pathways that support all 3 high schools and more specifically PLTW  Science, Coding  Communications and Graphic Arts/Visual Arts  Design.

 

•  Goal 3 - Continue to maintain a purposeful focus on the future of education by taking advantage of opportunities through Future Ready Schools, XQ Super Schools, the iSchool Initiative (Travis Allen), Schools That Can, the Univeristy of Southern New Hampshire (College For America) and other emerging resources.

 

•  Goal 4 - Work with the Centinela Valley Administrative staff and Board of Trustees to reach an agreement on amendments to the JPA legislation (Ed Code Section 35582) (SB 477 Wright) and the actual JPA Agreement, Article 12.8.2 to ensure that Centinela Valley encroachment on Wiseburn's debt limit is permanently limited after January 1, 2018 and that in all future bond elections through the JPA, the proceeds will be distributed according to an agreed upon formula, established in the amended JPA Agreement.

 

•  Goal 5 - Improve student performance and increase equity of outcomes for all students through district wide alignment to research-based strategies and practices to include CGI math, Wonders/Writers Workshop program adoptions, effective teaching protocols focused on 21st Century deeper learning via equitable access to devices, high-speed networks, and online resources to promote student-centered, personalized learning.
