Committed to Excellence
August 24, 2016
The Alamosa School District is ready to kick off the 2016-2017 school year and we are focused on our commitment to excellence. We are always looking to maximize our efforts and ensure that our vision of supporting students to reach their greatest potentials is achieved. This year our Academic District Action Plan will focus on four improvement strategies. The first is continued work on our standards based curriculum. This year the district focus will be on identifying critical content. Instructional staff and administration will continue curriculum and assessment work, analyzing curriculum to identify critical concepts in each content area. The second instructional strategy will focus on effective research based instruction. We will continue our expectation of posting daily objectives and ensuring that formative assessments are in place to assess instruction and learning. We will provide time for intentional planning to ensure that quality instruction is delivered in the classroom on a daily basis. Evidence of the gradual release of responsibility model should be evident in lesson plans and instruction. Our third improvement strategy will focus on post-secondary options. Our goal is for students to develop the necessary skills so that they are capable of pursuing post-secondary options when they graduate and so that they are able to become productive members of society. We will be providing ongoing learning opportunities for our students to support these efforts. Our fourth improvement strategy will be related to family partnerships. We will continue to work to develop a structure that engages parents, family and the community. This partnership is integral in supporting our students and the educational process of the district.
