School District of Clayton Long Range Goals 2008 - 2013
Every five years the State of Missouri asks school districts to develop a long-range plan or Comprehensive School Improvement Plan (CSIP), as the state calls it. A CSIP is a five-year strategic plan that serves to keep the District focused on areas that we identify as key goals for the next five years. Approximately 75 students, parents, staff and community members came together in April 2008 for a two-day planning retreat. By the end of the retreat, the group developed draft goals for Clayton's new five-year strategic plan. The group's collaborative efforts resulted in four long-range goals, listed below, which will help guide the District on a path of continued excellence.
By 2013 the written, instructed, and tested curriculum will reflect vertical and horizontal alignment of expected learner outcomes across all disciplines, courses, schools, and support programs.
By 2013 the District will have developed and implemented a District-wide professional development plan that directly addresses expectations for teachers' learning relative to established professional practice for each discipline and that provides adequate time, differentiated learning opportunities, and a common District-wide focus in order to improve teaching practice and student achievement.
By 2013 interventions, structures and programs that are reflective of and responsive to students' strengths, abilities, learning styles, and career interests will be established at all levels in order to increase students' self knowledge and achievement.
2013 high quality technology will be accessible to all students and staff and usage of that technology by both students and staff will meet the level of expertise established by state and national standards.
