Dear Alexander families,
 
At the start of the 2017-18 school year, our Board of Education adopted four-year goals for our District. Our goals focus on teaching and learning as well as our learning environment. These goals define and frame all of our work in the District. As we move into the midpoint of our year, it is a good time to take a look at our progress toward these goals.
 
Our teaching and learning goals focus on reading proficiency and increased performance on standardized measures. In alignment with these goals, our elementary building has implemented a reading program that ensures consistent practices and expectations in all of our classrooms with the goal of our students reading at grade level by the end of grade 3. Our work around the next generation standards in all of our buildings provides the opportunity for our teachers to prioritize standards and to plan learning around these standards. Our goals emphasize engagement in our classrooms and with our teachers and community. In alignment with these goals, we invited internationally renowned speaker Marcia Tate to work with our teachers on brain engaged strategies. Our STEAM program is offering new experiences to students in robotics, coding and agriculture. Our teachers participate in collaboration days several times each year and our professional learning plan was developed by our Teaching and Learning Teams based on feedback from teachers and a review of our District data. Our learning environment goals build on the idea of engagement around budget, technology, capital improvements and policy. We are making strong progress in all of these areas.
 
Our goals provide a sense of purpose for our District in terms of what we are providing to all of our students, faculty, staff and community. Thank you for your continued support of our work to create the conditions for all of our students to thrive.
 
With thanks~
Dr. Huber
