LPS Visitation Journey AdvancEd Domains Leadership Capacity 10 standards Learning Capacity 12 standards Resource Capacity 8 standards In all three buildings, team had clear evidence from observations & interviews that parents and students feel supported & cared for, and students work to develop respectful

relationships with little fear of negative feedback. Teachers are passionate about student growth and success. Visitation Results LHS LHS Powerful Practices Opportunities for Improvement are those actions that will guide and direct institutions to specific areas that are worthy of additional attention. Opportunity for Improvement #1 Ensure teachers and students have greater access to digital resources in the classrooms. (Standard 3.5)

Evidence: Interviews with teachers and students revealed the need for greater access to the use of computers at Lisbon High School. Teachers indicated that they would embed technology into their curriculum on a regular basis if they had consistent access to digital devices. Eleot observations scores in the Digital Learning Environment also indicated the limited use and/or access to technology. Improvement Priorities are developed to enhance the capacity of the institution to reach a higher level of performance and reflect the areas identified by the Engagement Review Team to have the greatest impact on improving student performance and organizational effectiveness. Improvement Priority #1 Develop and implement a systemic process to analyze and use formative and summative data. (Standards 2.6, 2.11, 3.6) Evidence: Interviews with administration and teaching staff revealed that Lisbon High School does not use a school-wide process for analyzing or using the testing data they

collect. The current procedures described in interviews, which included intermittent use by teachers with their students in certain curricular areas, revealed that this information is not having its full potential impact on their curriculum and teaching practices. Suggested Growth Visitation Results - LMS Practices

Opportunity for Improvement #1 Develop, implement, and monitor a process that results in access for teachers and students to digital resources that align with state standards and best practices. (Standard 3.5) Evidence: Interviews with teachers and students revealed the need for greater access to the use of computers at Lisbon Middle School. Teachers indicated that they would embed technology into their curriculum on a regular basis if they had consistent access to digital devices.

Opportunity for Improvement #2 Develop and implement a process of evaluation to ensure best practice is being used in the classroom to improve student outcomes. The plan must provide training for teachers in the use of data to guide instructional practice that will result improved student outcome (Standard 2.8) Evidence: Interviews, observations and artifacts indicated a need to formalize the process of evaluation of data to ensure programs and instructional practice are having the desired outcome on student learning. Team observations along with interviews indicate there is a need for improved instructional strategies. Training of staff in the use of summative and formative data can ensure that programing and instructional strategies will result in improved student achievement. Improvement in instructional strategies must be based on data and best practice.

Improvement Priority #1 Develop a process to engage all stakeholders in the revision and updating of the current purpose and mission statement, ensuring that it is the guiding principle for improving student outcomes. (Standard 1.2) Evidence: Interviews indicated that parents and support staff were often not as involved in school curricular activities as they may have been at the elementary school. Discussions with stakeholders revealed a desire for parents to get into the middle school for this purpose. This sentiment was echoed in stakeholder survey results. LMS Suggested Growth 2 20

LES Corrected Graph Needs Improvement Emerging Meets Expectations Exceeds Expectations Practices

Opportunity for Improvement #1 Ensure all teachers implement instructional strategies that engage students in customized learning through application, critical thinking and technology integration to creativity, innovation and collaborative problem solving. (Standard 2.2) Evidence: Classroom observations using the Eleot observation tool, AdvancED survey results and interviews with stakeholder groups revealed that while there were some teachers effectively implementing instructional strategies that highly engaged students, these practices were not consistent throughout the school. Professional development and implementation of instructional strategies that provide clear communication of learning expectations, increase student engagement, and incorporate meaningful student use of digital technology as a learning tool are needed.

Improvement Priority #1 Ensure teachers and students have greater access to training on digital instructional and access to digital resources in the classrooms. (Standard 3.5) Evidence: Interviews with teachers and students revealed the need for greater access to the use of digital technology at Lisbon Elementary School. Eleot observations scores in the Digital Learning Environment indicated the limited use and/or access to technology. Teacher stakeholders revealed a desire for training to embed technology into engaging practice and expressed the need to access to devices to do so. LES Suggested Growth Which building level report said this?

The Teams findings revealed minimal opportunities for learners to engage in self-directed or collaborative coursework, discussions with peers, or tasks requiring higher order thinking skills. Although students in some classes were seated in cooperative learning groups, they were not engaged in collaborative discussions with their peers. While students were well-behaved and compliant, the team noted that many classrooms were less student driven. Below average student engagement at Elementary & MS Little Observable use of technology Need More Student & Teacher access to digital

resources Need to USE Data to drive instruction Written Response to Betsy Deihl, AdvancEd. Team leadership issues No team review/training of ELEOT tool Multiple teachers from one school evaluating our elementary Really?! Turn and Talk What is your reaction?!

MS Emerging HS Emerging Teacher interview indicated that they appreciate the time available to them and understand why administrators place a high level of importance on PLCs. However, a repeated theme was a desire for more meaningful use of PLCs. A common focus would provide a more defined direction for teams & to allow PLCs to focus on improvement of student learning. - Elem Report Team member schools are from INNOVATIVE schools Oakes, Richland/Colfax, Valley-Edinburg RRVEC Succeed

Where do we go from here? Vision and Mission by Amy 2 All students will learn, experience success, and be good citizens. Mission What is OUR

VISION? VISION: ??? Policy: AAA It is our desire that this philosophy will be the firm commitment of those involved in the educational processes of the LPS and its constituency. We consider each student to be unique, thereby establishing the need for creative endeavors and individual growth and recognition of individual learner demands, individual planning, and individual learning technique. In a rapidly changing environment, a student should learn to know him/herself in order to communicate with and know others,. It is imperative that each student develop a feeling of confidence and respect for him/herself physically and emotionally. Professional resources should be made available to students in their formative years. An important priority of our education should be to instill the desire for continual

learning in each student. Curriculum should be guided by the realities of life. It should contain a balanced proportion of those things essential to the future well-being of the student, including knowledge and appreciation of the fine arts. The interested developed as a result of this desire to learn and an appreciation of excellency should enable a student to make wise decisions concerning leisure time. Opportunities should be provided to develop a continuous involvement between school and community. This process will allow the student a broader perspective of home, family, and community.
