By the end of 2015-2016 school year, 65% of Monroe Center students will meet their individual goals in Aimsweb RCBM and ELA Pre/Post assessments, as well as increase their STAR Grade Equivalent score by a full year (1.0). By the end of 2015-2016 school year, 65% of Monroe Center students will meet their individual goals in AimswebMCap and MComp. Over the next two school years (2015-2017) a student's score on the MJHS Common Writing Rubric will increase by 10% or more when averaged across disciplines. During the 2015-2016 school year all teachers at Meridian Junior High will write a curriculum smart goal with their students based on pretest data, this goal will improve post-test scores by the 51% rule. The number of students determined to be College and Career Ready as defined by SVHS based on the attainment of Latin Honors criteria, successful Military Enlistment, and/or benchmark attainment on all four ACT components will increase by 10% or more over the next two school years (2015-2016 & 2016-2017).

OTHER AREAS OF FOCUS I. Communication  Communication with each other is appropriate and efficient. Nobody feels ‘blind -sided’ during the conversation. The feedback received regarding the communication of Administration and Directors is consistent with servant-leader mindset and core values of the District. Growth from all parties should continue from year-to-year until communication can be described as outstanding by both the community and faculty/staff. II. Organizational Trust  The Leadership team feels as though they can trust the Superintendent and BOE and vice versa. Distrust is not a factor within the organizational culture and relationships with parents and bargaining units are positive. Survey data is collective to measure this in a systematic manner and areas for growth are discussed and strategies for improvement implemented. Comprehensive Curriculum  Curriculum is aligned to standards at all levels and data from standards-based assessments are being used to fuel PLC conversations. Strategic and systemic work is taking place to align K-12 curriculum. Documentation of growth will include scope and sequence documents and standards-based pre- and post-assessments. High Expectations  The Leadership Team and Superintendent will mutually hold each other to extremely high standards. Effort, accomplishment, and vision of all parties should be easy to see by all stakeholders. It is also apparent that all leaders are holding faculty and staff to high expectations through a rigorous and comprehensive evaluation process. Visionary Leadership  Initiatives and improvements show a commitment to innovation and an attempt to progress the district forward beyond simply purchasing material items. The status quo is not accepted and the district is an outcome-driven organization working annually toward creating ambitious and clear goals that support overall district goals. Visionary leadership takes place in each building and department and is led by individual members of the leadership team. Safe Environment  Buildings are up to state code and have a plan on how to continually improve facilities in place that is communicated and approved by the BOE. Additionally, the Leadership Team has committed to staying current and up-to-date on all emergency management procedures that could best serve our students. This includes, but is not limited to, working closely with the Stillman Valley Fire Department and the Ogle County Sherriff. 21 Century Learning st  21 century learning means more than having great technologically, but technology is part of the process. The Leadership Team has a plan and will continue working to improve district infrastructure so that by the end of the 17-18 school-year district technology is on par or has surpassed neighboring districts. Additionally, a district-wide focus on preparing students for college-and-career is evident K-12. A local definition of what college-and-career ready (CCR) will be BOE approved and will become a focus of district work, inclusive of forming partnerships with regional businesses and community colleges to help achieve the goal of producing CCR students. Best Practice  Current trends and research are known and implemented when appropriate by all members of the leadership team. The Superintendent is not the disseminator of knowledge, the culture of the Leadership Team and therefore the district is for all professionals to stay current with best practice and to continue personal professional development. Each department or building leader systematically puts a process in place to support this process. st III. IV. V. VI. VII. VIII. 4

IX. Rigorous Evaluation  Members of the leadership team are evaluated rigorously and the expectation is that they do the same for all direct reports. All employees within MCUSD should be on a formal evaluation cycle and receive meaningful feedback to improve their practice as a result of the process. Evaluation is the primary tool to help others develop and this is evidenced by thorough, comprehensive performance evaluations performed by all Directors and Administrators. Accountability  District Leaders consistently hold their staff members accountable based on the desired goals and norms of the organization. The motto, ‘With awareness comes responsibility’ is adopted and adhered to by all within the organization. The culture of the Leadership Team demonstrates that they are not only accountable to the Superintendent, but also to every member of the team and the team as a whole. . A team mindset persists and everyone is accountable to the ideals of the mission and core values. Consistency  The Superintendent systematically invests in all members of the Leadership Team and members of the team do so with their direct reports. Levels of expectations are consistent for all individuals and excellence is expected from every element and individual within the organization. X. XI. 5
