103 - Long Range Goals

Long-range goals enables the school district to analyze assessment data, get feedback from the community about its expectation for students and determine how well students are meeting student learning goals. The board will conduct ongoing and in-depth needs assessments, soliciting information from business, labor, industry, higher education and community members regarding their expectations for adequate student preparation.

In conjunction with the in-depth needs assessments of the school district, the board will authorize the appointment of a school improvement committee, representing administrators, employees, parents/guardians, students and community members, to make recommendations and assist the board in determining the priorities of the school district in addition to the basic skills areas of the
education program.

The Carroll Community School District will periodically review curriculum with assistance from all CCSD students, parents/guardians, teachers, and community members. The curriculum cycle and review process will be affirmed by the School Improvement Team (SIT) each school year.

It is the responsibility of the superintendent to ensure the school district community is informed of students' progress on state and locally determined indicators. The superintendent will report annually to the board about the means used to keep the community informed.

As a result of the board and committee's work, the board will determine major educational needs and rank them in priority order; develop long-range goals and plans to meet the needs, establish and implement short-range and intermediate-range plans to meet the goals and to attain the desired levels of student performance, evaluate progress toward meeting the goals and maintain a record of progress under the plan that includes reports of student performance and results of school improvement projects; and annually report the school district's progress made under the plan to the committee, community and Iowa Department of Education.
