2022-2023 District/Board Goals
Goal #1: Improve overall student achievement through the following:
NWEA 5-8 - By June 2023, there will be a 10% increase in the number of students in grades 5-8 meeting their projected growth goals on the spring 2023 Math NWEA, as compared to the fall 2022 Math NWEA. It is anticipated that this growth will be accomplished as a result of a full academic year of planned and systematic instructional intervention strategies and activities.
Algebra I - During the 2021-2022 school year, 6% of 8th-grade students met or exceeded expectations on the 8th-grade NJSLA mathematics test. By June 2023, 15% of the same cohort of students will meet or exceed expectations on the Algebra I NJSLA mathematics test.
SAT - In October 2022, the Lacey Township School District will sponsor all juniors’ participation in the PSAT/NMSQT. Students’ results will be provided in early 2023. Personally-tailored tutoring will be made available to junior testers utilizing their College Board account, the Khan Academy, and certificated Lacey Township High School staff. Juniors will then take the SAT in the Spring of 2023. Spring SAT scores of those who received the tutoring intervention will be compared to PSAT/NMSQT predictive scores from October 2022’s administration. It is the goal that there will be a 5% increase in the SAT score of this targeted population, when compared to the PSAT/NMSQT predictive score, of those students who engaged in the tutoring service.
*Note: Spring of 2023 SAT scores will serve as the baseline for an aligned District. Goal for 23-24 SY.
Goal #2: Implement In-District and Out-of-District Listen & Learn Forums
Goal #3: Implementation of a Special Education Advisory Committee - By June 2023, develop a Special Education Advisory Committee made up of parents, staff, and students to meet quarterly to explore programs that will encourage special education students to interact more regularly with their general education peers.
Facilities and Finance
Goal #4: Continue to explore various avenues for revenue in the district.
By October 2022, develop a Grant Writing Committee facilitated by the Assistant Business Administrator to explore, apply for, and secure grants. This inaugural year will serve as the baseline for an aligned District Goal for 23-24 SY.
By January 2022, the District Safety and Security Team will complete a District Reunification Plan that is aligned with the district’s safety and security protocols.
Board Certification - Achieve Board Certification through NJSBA’s Board Member Academy program by May 2023 for award in the Fall of 2023.
Workshop Session - Hold a workshop session with no action quarterly with a focus on training and/or proactive planning.
