Last night I attended the School Committee meeting with the other principals in the district to present our building-based School Improvement Plans (SIP). Each level (Elementary, MS and HS) made a presentation of their goals and discussed connections to the District Plan and some of the items that may be needed for successful implementation.
At HWRHS, our SIP was developed to support the current work we are doing to meet the State requirements of Educator Evaluation, assessment and documentation of our curriculum, communication and the possible expansion of a 1-1 device program. These goals may seem simple, but will act as a foundation for future planning related to changing teaching and learning at HWRHS. We intend to develop a 5-year plan over the next few months that will guide the way through the change process. Lots of work and lots of questions!
