2019-2020 Goals

Goal 1: Personnel
Work with all stakeholders to build a culture in the Alpha Public School District characterized by positive and committed people, engaged families and community members, and innovative learning experiences. 

Goal 2: School Safety & Security
Ensure a safe, secure and orderly environment that supports student learning by working collaboratively with local law enforcement to ensure a safe learning environment and will implement appropriate safety measures within the school for all students and staff.

Goal 3: Governance
Continue to examine and evaluate issues related to the emotional and psychological wellness of our students.  Focus will include developing professional practices that promote emotionally strong and resilient children through a building-wide character education program that will eliminate and/or greatly reduce any incidences of HIB. 

Goal 4: Curriculum and Instruction
Expand classroom access to educational technology devices (i.e. Chromebooks, 3D Printers, Makerspace, etc.) and advance our library to a media center. Expand student writing with improvements to the writing curriculum demonstrated  through publication of student work and presented to the Board throughout the school year.

Goal 5: Future Growth and Development
The Board and administration will develop a 2020-2025 strategic plan. The Strategic Plan development will consist of a robust mixture of planning and communication that ensures all educators and stakeholders including parents, teachers, administrators, board members, and community are working towards the same goals.
