Measures and Timeline for District Goals 

At Fredericktown Local Schools, each of us is invested in and supportive of opportunities that maximize the educational experience and growth of every student.

1. District Leadership Team Goals:

3 Year Plan:
2019-2020: Research/Learning/Implement
2020-2021: Implement
2021-2023: Monitor Fidelity and Revise /Adjust

Goal 1: During the 2020-2023 school years, Fredericktown Local Schools will continue to implement a Social/Emotional Framework to address the social/emotional needs of K-12 students. Following the implementation during years 2020-2022, monitoring and revising will continue through the 2022-2023 school year.  

Goal 2: During the 2020-2021 school year, students will engage in weekly nonfiction reading and strategy instruction across content areas to increase academic stamina and rigor. From 2021-2023, literacy logs will be used to track progress.

Remediation and intervention programs, curriculum materials, intervention teachers, and after school programs

c. Evaluate student growth through multiple measures: pretests, quarterly assessments, classroom assessments, standardized tests, and other measures. TBTs, BLTs, and DLTs will discuss this data at their meetings and discuss ways to support students with learning loss (weekly, monthly, or quarterly).

3. Technology Needs Assessment (2022-2023 school year)

a. The Library Media Specialist (LMS) will conduct a gap analysis of technology skills taught at each grade and present a report to Administrator/teachers by January, 2023 compared to the Ohio’s Technology Standards.

5. Continue to find ways and finances to develop and expand focused teacher and staff learning through professional development

a. Target and identify specific areas to fund and support focused systematic PD that positively impacts teacher and staff efficacy, enthusiasm, student achievement, and engagement. We will use ESSER 2 and ARP ESSER monies for this goal. The BLTs, DLTs, and Administration will work together to determine what PD is needed and wanted.
