School Improvement Plan

School Improvement Plan
2015-2016

“The Digital Learning Environment (DLE) is designed to provide teachers with the resources necessary to both innovate and differentiate instruction according to the needs of each student and for students to personalize their own learning, making choices about how they learn and present their new knowledge. The DLE should inspire teachers to implement creative technology practices as the District moves to full implementation (DLE). The District expects that every teacher will take a blended approach to lesson design and delivery, and will use the devices, as appropriate, to facilitate student learning…

While all of the DLE educational goals are meaningful and transformative, buildings/programs are encouraged to begin their journey by focusing on one goal within their first year of practice…
” DLE goals:
● Students will demonstrate critical thinking of online content
● Students will self­ regulate learning
● Students will receive quality feedback on their work
● Learning will be more personalized.

North Street School will focus on Goal Four: Learning will be more personalized for students. The purpose of this goal is to allow teachers the ability to personalize their instruction to meet the needs of all students by using research­ based proven strategies.
“When we ask ourselves how much instruction during the course of a typical school day does each student get exactly on the skill they’re working on, and in the amount that is right for them, the answer is very little,” says Joel Rose, a former teacher who has been instrumental in the development and expansion of the School of One. “By leveraging technology to play a role in the delivery of instruction,” he says, “we can help to complement what live teachers do.”
