Dolsen Elementary School has embraced the AdvancED transitions accreditation plan as the central focus of our school improvement plan. Student assessment data is analyzed, and specific best practice teacher strategies are implemented with students where needed. Our building shared involvement team serves as this plan's steering committee. Our building shared involvement team includes support staff, teachers, parents, and administration.
Our carefully written mission and its supporting belief statements guide our building plan. Our performance goals are:
Focus Area: Reading: All students will be proficient in reading comprehension when engaged in both narrative and expository text (including topics within the science and social studies curricula).
Focus Area: Writing: All students will be proficient in writing (including topics within the science and social studies curricula)..
Focus Area: Math: All students will be proficient in mathematical reasoning and fluency.
The plan is a work in progress, which we modify to align with AdvancED and our student needs. We hosted a successful External Review in the winter of 2016, where we maintained full accreditation.
