Board Goals and Guardrails

  • Power of One

    The three Board Goals are:

    • Strengthen Reading Proficiency - The percentage of third-grade students proficient in Reading on the Ohio State Test (OST) will increase from 34.5% in School Year 2022-2023 to 44.5% by June of 2028.
    • Strengthen Mathematics Proficiency - The percentage of seventh-grade students proficient in Mathematics on the Ohio State Test (OST) will increase from 14.7% in school year 2022-2023 to 23.45% in June of 2028.
    • Closing Opportunity Gaps - The percentage of 4-year graduation cohort students who complete state and district graduation requirements will increase from 78.2% in August of 2023 to 83.2% in August of 2028.

    Guardrails are operational actions, typically strategic not tactical, which the superintendent may not use or allow in pursuit of the district’s goals. Guardrails are based on the community’s values, aligned with the district’s educational vision and goals, and are non-negotiable.

    The four Board Guardrails are:

    • Support Intervention Systems - The superintendent will not allow the Multi-Tiered Systems of Supports (MTSS) for students’ needs to be under-resourced.
    • Prioritize a Whole Child Focus - The superintendent will not allow the district to ignore a whole child approach.
    • Align Resources Equitably - The superintendent will not allow any region to be without strong learning communities.
    • Ensure a Culturally-Responsive Staff - The superintendent will not allow cultural non-responsivity to impact student experience or staff effectiveness.
