Student Success Strategic Priorities

Increased Performance for All

Garfield Re-2 School District's three-year smart goal is:

Garfield Re-2 students will perform at or above the state average on assessments of English Language Arts (ELA) and Math proficiency.

The district will measure proficiency levels of ALL students quarterly, with a specific focus on subgroups through internal data reviews using the following diagnostic tools:

  • iReady Reading and Math Data
  • Forefront Math Data
  • TS Gold • Powerschool Data
  • PSAT/SAT Practice Assessments

Garfield Re-2 is already making progress toward this goal with Collaboration Days/Strategic Planning Days where professional development is provided at the District Level, four elementary math pilot programs to help Garfield Re-2 find the best fit for math instruction in our district and a mentor program that supports first-year, second-year and veteran teachers in different programs to meet their individual needs.
