High Quality Teaching and Learning
Of all the variables that affect student achievement, none has a higher impact than quality instruction. Simply put, a great teacher in every classroom makes an incredible difference for students regardless of socioeconomic or cultural differences. As CCPS increases its capacity to plan and deliver high quality instruction, it will eventually lead to success in other areas such as teacher recruitment and the development of a strong academic culture.
Improved Equity and Access to College and Career Opportunities
CCPS must be committed to providing every student a chance to pursue opportunities of individual interest in the areas of career and technical education and college-level coursework. Barriers to access must be assessed and eliminated. Through increased career research and guidance, students will thrive in an educational environment that is both challenging and responsive to their unique interests and talents.
Culture of Excellence
Culture is a powerful lever for organizational improvement. Focusing on interpersonal relationships and cultivating a culture of excellence promises to create the conditions where professional talent is nurtured and celebrated.
A school division’s most valuable resource is its personnel. If having the best professional talent in every classroom makes a difference for children, then CCPS must commit the necessary resources to attract, hire and retain the best teachers. In addition to teachers, maintaining a highly qualified and skilled administrative and support staff will ensure greater organizational efficiency and support for the instructional program.
Community partnerships improve the quality of service to our students in many ways. Finding new and creative ways to involve the community in the daily operations of our schools is critical to improving educational opportunities for students.
