    Drive for Five

    "Five Goals for Achieving Equity and Excellence for All..."

    First, we will work to improve students' academic performance and we will work to integrate social-emotional learning into daily instruction.

    Second, we will attract and retain highly qualified, effective teachers to teach our students.

    Third, we will commit to improving our aging infrastructure so that our students are educated iin school buildings that are worthy of them.

    Fourth, we will be more purposeful and strategic in developing and sustaining effective partnerships with our families and other community stakeholders.

    Fifth, we will be more intentional in our efforts to foster a division-wide culture of caring.
