District 1 Re-evaluates Board Goals

District 1 Re-evaluates Board Goals

Administrators from Sheridan County school district 1 met Friday morning to discuss and re-evaluate board goals, trying to better line up a support system for district curriculum. Sheridan Media's Ron Richter has the details.
One of the goals included maintaining meeting goals of 75% reading scores at all levels as measured by the MAP test. Superintendent Kobza said it's important to be brutally honest about where they stand if they want to get any better, emphasizing reading strategies that support comprehension, fluency, and understanding to a level that kids can use what they learn and read.

Other goals included improving science and social studies curriculum, reaching and maintaining a graduation rate of 95 percent district-wide, and maximizing the credit recovery programs.

Beyond specific reading and curriculum goals the board and Kobza discussed the importance of parent involvement in the learning process. For example in credit recovery Kobza stressed the importance that if a student is not doing their homework that they take the right steps in making sure make-up work is done in a way that makes the student not continue to miss assignments. The board agreed that they need to continue to find ways to convey the importance of parent involvement in a student's schoolwork and performance.

Held at the Historic Sheridan Inn, the board took no action at the meeting.
