School Improvement Progress

Continuous school improvement is a process to identify areas of success and areas for improvement. Staff in District 145 are engaged in a process to do more than just teach students; they are examining various types of data to measure student are achievement.

Days when students do not have school are often used as opportunities for teachers and principals to engage in professional development to monitor student progress. Click here to read about Eagle Elementary activities from November 26, 2012.

Teachers and administrators at each building are engaged in the school improvement process. For example, at Hamlow elementary on Nov. 26, teachers spent the morning looking at the state test results for Waverly Intermediate School students in grades 3-5. Even though Hamlow has K-2 students, the data will help them see the percentage of students in different subgroups that were below, meeting, or exceeding standards. Staff synthesized the data to help identify areas that students skills are lacking, which will help shape their approach teaching students.
