2023 Strategic Plan Goals
In support of the Strategic Plan, we will develop goals to highlight key milestones and deliverables. These goals provide a framework for us to check in on our work, assess our progress, and adjust where needed to ensure we are moving toward 2023.
In October 2018, we launched our five-year Strategic Plan. The plan outlines our new vision, mission, and values, which were co-designed by our Board, staff, community. It also introduced our six key priorities: 1) High-Quality Instruction; 2) Student Well-Being; 3) Exceptional Staff; 4) Climate and Culture; 5) Family and Community; 6) Organizational Alignment. We use these priorities to build focus and common understanding around the strategies and programs we are implementing and define what we plan to achieve by 2023, the final year of our plan.
Goal 1, Affirm and Inspire: Students feel safe, affirmed, and inspired to achieve high levels of social-emotional well-being regardless of background.
The percent of students reporting a positive school climate on the Panorama student survey will increase by at least 5 percentage points at each school level (elementary, middle, high). For each of the following subgroups, the gap between All Students and the subgroup will not exceed 4 percentage points: Black, Hispanic, Special Education, English Learners, Low Income.
Explore adding a measure on how curriculum and instruction affirms and inspires students by the end of Year 3 (2020-21)
Goal 2, Learn and Thrive: Students achieve high levels of academic success and outcomes are not predicted by race or income.
90% of students in the Class of 2029 cohort* will meet or exceed state standards in ELA and math by spring of 2022, with an increase of at least 20 percentage points for the following subgroups: Black, Hispanic, Special Education, English Learners, Low Income.
90% of students in the Class of 2026 cohort* will meet or exceed state standards in ELA and math by spring of 2022, with an increase of at least 20 percentage points for the following subgroups: Black, Hispanic, Special Education, English Learners, Low Income
98% of the Class of 2022 cohort* will graduate on time, unless their individual plan designates additional time.
A measure of progress for students receiving ELL service will be identified by the end of Year 2 (June 2020) and will be piloted and refined in Year 3 (2020-21).
Consider adding a measure in Year 3 by (date)
Students in grades K-12 will make a year’s worth of growth. District will develop indicator measures in key grades and subjects, representing both elementary and secondary grades by the end of Year 3 (2020-21).
*Cohorts will be assessed by including all students who began in the cohort in Year 1 as of October 1, 2018 and who remain in the cohort when measures are taken. Students entering the district after Year 1 (October 1, 2018) will not be included in the cohort data.
Goal 3, Creators of Their Future World: Students effectively problem solve and lead for positive local and global change by developing global awareness and cultural competency, and learn advanced skills in processing and applying information through the effective use of technology and engineering.
At least 90% of students show proficiency in global awareness and cultural competence by completing a performance task in 2nd, 6th, and 12th grade. (Baseline June 2020)
At least 90% of students show proficiency in computer science by completing a performance task in 4th grade. (Baseline June 2020)
At least 90% of students show proficiency in using technology to design solutions by completing a Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math (STEM) performance task in 7th and 10th grade. (Baseline June 2020)
Goal 4, Exceptional Staff: To improve student well-being and academic achievement in our district, we develop a culture that attracts, engages, and retains exceptional educators who are reflective of and responsive to the diversity of Bellevue School District students.
Baseline measures and targets to be established by April 2020 for the following areas:
At least 70% of staff report high levels of engagement on our staff engagement index (Baseline February 2020)
10% reduction in mobility of certified staff in schools and programs for traditionally marginalized students (Baseline April 2020)
15% increase in the diversity of certificated staff by race and ethnicity (Baseline April 2020)
15% increase in the diversity of school administrators by race and ethnicity (Baseline April 2020)
Goal 5, Family and Community Engagement: Families, particularly those who have been traditionally marginalized, are more informed, better able to find support, and are more empowered to contribute to student success.
At least 75% of families report they feel informed, supported, and empowered to contribute to their student’s success as measured by the Family Satisfaction Survey and the gap between All Families and the following subgroups will not exceed 5%: Black, Hispanic, Special Education, English Learners, Low Income (Baseline June 2020)
