• Continuous Improvement Plan 2018-2019

    The Process

    Shades Valley High School's Continuous Improvement Leadership Team met regularly from June to September 2018 to review the school's mission and vision to determine our strengths and weaknesses based on data from a spring survey of students, parents, teachers, and staff, and fall inventories of teachers and students.  We analyzed and discussed data from different types of assessments to determine trends in performance.  We identified notable achievements and areas in need of improvement.  Using different sources of data, the Continuous Improvement Leadership Team identified three goals (described below) and presented these to the faculty.  The faculty in both large and small groups has met several times since the beginning of the year to review district standards, examine local school pratices, and assist with the writing of the Continuous Improvement Plan.
