District Vision

District Goals

 

Improve Outcomes for Students 

- By June 2021, District 7 will increase the percentage of ENLs and SWDs  who perform at Levels 2-4 by 15%  in service of reducing the gap in achievement between this subgroup and their general education peers by 5% through increasedin person and remoteinstructional coherence, rigorous programs and an effective intervention program eliminating the use of reteaching as the predominant strategy to improve student performance without evidence of impact. 


Strengthen Social-Emotional Learning and Culturally Responsive School Environments
 

- By June 2021, District 7 will engage our families using research-based programs and approaches to build inclusive in-person and remote school culture and CRSE environments resulting in a 5% decrease in chronic absenteeism, eliminating disparities in attendance rates for students with disabilities with the goal of eliminating/reducing the belief that the traditional ways of monitoring chronic absenteeism (407→phone call→ ACS) are effective in bridging the gap between schools and families 


Develop Leaders
 

-By June 2021, District 7 will design and orchestrate a robust system of structured remote intervisitations in our District 7 community and beyond the District to cultivate and share best online and in-person practices which promote instructional excellence and accelerate student achievement resulting in 10% decrease in Level 1 student performance in Math and ELA while decreasing the achievement gap between SWD/ELL students and their General Education Non-ELL peers. 


Mathematics
 

- By June 2021, District 7 schools will focus on providing students who performed a Level 1 in math with access to authentic, rich and diverse mathematical tasks and mathematical remote and in person experiences that promote conceptual understanding through student discussion, collaboration, and connection making reducing the belief that students of color who score in the lowest proficiency level require static teaching practices low in engagement in order to improve their proficiency which will result in a decrease in the percentage of students performing at level 1 in math by at least 5% as well as a decrease in the opportunity gap between SWDs/ELLs and their general education non-ELL peers by 5%
