Improve the ways in which the needs of all students are met through a more clearly defined I&RS and RTI program which will address academic needs as well as the social and emotional needs of students who are at-risk, those who have Individualized Education Plans (IEPs), and those who should receive additional challenge through enrichment, Gifted and Talented, advanced or honors level courses.
Curriculum and Instruction:
Analyze the existing instructional program through a comprehensive Program Evaluation schedule that will begin in the 2016-2017 school year. Program Evaluations are the basis and catalyst for curriculum renewal. They provide a mechanism for the leadership and stakeholders of the district to critically review the existing curriculum in a systematic and collaborative manner and make informed decisions regarding its effectiveness. The district currently has a Five Year Curriculum Renewal Plan that is ending in the 2016-2017 school year.
Culture and Public Relations:
Promote a culture that embraces an education that begins and ends in WTPS and garners community support for improvements that will require additional funding.
Finance and Facilities:
Demonstrate and communicate the fiscal accountability and transparency of district finances by making more information available for public access, as well as ensuring that non-resident students are accountable for their tuition. Update the district's Long Range Facilities Plan, including but not limited to housing for our student transportation department, athletic facilities, and building mechanical systems.
Ensure that the highest quality employees are hired in WTPS, and that they are provided with feedback that leads to continued improvement, they receive appropriate and meaningful professional development, and personnel policies are followed by all administrators and staff members.
Improve communication with parents, especially in the areas of curriculum and instruction, social and emotional development, special education, and opportunities for students. Opportunities for students include, but are not limited to: Option II, Enrichment and Gifted and Talented programs, supplemental instruction for ELLs transition programs, and summer learning opportunities.
