TTUSD sets goals for Year 2000

The Tahoe-Truckee Unified School District is looking ahead, beyond the year 2001, as staff, board members and administrators work on refining the district’s goals for the year 2000, which will be up for approval at the board’s Jan. 13 meeting.

“The goals will be longstanding goals for the district,” TTUSD Superintendent Pat Gemma. They look ahead five to eight years he said. “The goals themselves will continue on,” he said.

After a November board retreat, board members began to brainstorm goal ideas. They formulated a list of five or six goals, and district administrators and staff refined the list, and discussed objectives in alignment with each goal, Gemma said.

All administrators and board members were asked to rate the objectives from 0 to 5. A rating of 5 means the objective has a strong match to the collective criteria, and a rating of 0 means very little or no match. The ratings are intended to reflect that the objective is appropriately aligned under the goal it was written. They were also asked to confirm where the goals are really where they want them to be. The district is still gathering results, Gemma said.

The goals indicate the school district will provide:

— High quality curricular and co-curricular programs and instruction so that all students will meet, or exceed district content and performance standards. These programs will assure that students have the knowledge and skills to continue higher education and/or enter a productive occupation upon graduation.

— Sound management and development of resources including: personnel, time, energy, ideas, dollars, facilities and equipment.

— An environment and programs that continues to develop good citizenship and daily attendance. An environment/culture that acknowledges the importance of mutual trust, respect in relationships and the need for all members of the school community to be understood, valued and appreciated.

— An inclusive process in problem-solving, decision-making and will continue improvement. This means that community members, parents, students and staff will be evaluated.
