The red asterisks (*) in the preceding section (Strategies) indicate the District Improvement Planning Committee's recommended top priorities for implementation. These priorities, in order, are as follows:

We will create, implement, and coordinate appropriate prevention and intervention programs to meet the needs of all students.

We will develop at least one active business/community partnership in each school.

(Tie) We will involve all students and staff in the development, implementation, and monitoring of continuous improvement plans.
We will provide effective technology that supports teaching and learning.
(Tie) We will develop, promote, and support an interdisciplinary curriculum, preK-12, to include integration of the arts, connections among academic disciplines, and academic-vocation integration.
(Tie) We will develop individual improvement plans and appropriate interventions for all students not meeting all grade-level expectations.
(Tie) We will encourage students to be involved in the community.
(Tie) We will provide reliable, relevant, accurate, and accessible information to the Board of Education, staff, School Site Councils, parents, and students for use in decision-making.
