District Strategic Plan
South Redford School District 
Strategic Plan

We will prepare leaders to compete globally through rigorous preparation and recognition of the unique gifts of each student.

Our impassioned, dedicated community will guarantee a challenging, aligned curriculum and safe environment to ensure each student will be college and career ready.

Student Achievement Goal
All students will annually demonstrate continuous academic growth, in four core content areas, as measured by national, state, and local assessments.

District staff will develop a data management system that informs instruction so that students will receive:
  • Consistent instruction in the four core content areas with clear learning targets
  • Consistent involvement in the plan-do-study-act process for continuous improvement of learning
  • Instructional matching to student learning needs (Response to Intervention [RTI])
  • District staff will engage in collaborative curriculum development (such as  pacing guides, local formative and summative assessments, identification of power standards)
  • Documented and consistent use of clear learning targets in plans and posted in classrooms daily
  • Systematic, systemic review of student achievement data in core content disaggregated by subgroups and used to improve student learning at all levels of the system at least quarterly
  • Documented, planned and implemented research-based interventions for each student in Tiers II and III based on multiple measures with progress monitoring at regular intervals to determine continuous growth
  • District document development, usage, and monitored three times during the academic year
Instructional Goal
All instructional staff will engage every student in high quality, rigorous, and aligned instruction in every school, every classroom, every day.

  • District staff will implement common, research-based instructional practices in grades pre-K through 12 such as:
    • The “Marzano/McREL Nine Instructional Strategies that Work”
    • Baldrige Quality Tools
    • Formative Assessment to determine levels of proficiency and effective feedback
    • Professional Learning Communities
  • District staff will engage in aligned professional development determined by the data
  • Comprehensive district educator evaluation system

  • Instructional walk-throughs with constructive feedback to ensure quality, fidelity, and intensity of common instructional practices 
  • Agendas for Professional Learning Community meeting to demonstrate progress toward action research goals reviewed monthly
  • Professional development timeline, agendas, Plus/Delta’s, and surveys to document alignment of professional development with district goals for implementation of research-based instruction five times annually

Support Services Goal
Support services will ensure that each unique area of support provides high quality service that is timely and effective to enhance the learning environment and maximize instruction to achieve continuous student learning.

  • Parent/Community Involvement developed through research-based strategies such as the work of Joyce Epstein schedule for regular maintenance and repair with consideration for ways to maximize instructional time and support student learning
  • Food Service will support development of healthy eating habits through education and healthy food choices
  • Student physical and mental health will be supported through classroom instruction, parent information, and professional development to develop and maintain habits to support a healthy lifestyle
  • Agendas, sign-in sheets, minutes, surveys to measure satisfaction and plan for improvement for each meeting/activity
  • Effective use of ticket system for tracking problems, prioritizing work,  resolving issues,  and quarterly engagement in Plan-Do-Study-Act process using this data
  • Monthly menu selections, annual student survey results,  food service meeting agendas and meeting notes
  • Annual student survey instruments at selected grades will indicate the level of success in developing healthy lifestyle habits
