Summit School District: Board members to discuss student success

summit daily news

The Summit School District administrative team sits down with the Summit School District Board of Education at 1:15 p.m. Tuesday at the Central Administration Office to continue working on methods to improve student achievement and instructional excellence.

The work continues to refine implementation of the revised Strategic Goals and Action Plan for 2010-11. Focal points of discussion include ways to improve student achievement, such as closing the gaps in reading and math between English-language learners and English-proficient students. Officials also plan to discuss instruction improvements and continued implementation of practices already in place.

Board members will also hear a presentation from Hazard, Young, Attea and Associates, a search firm offering services for the district’s superintendent search. In September, board members heard a presentation from the Colorado Association of School Boards. The plan is to select one of the two to conduct the search for current superintendent Millie Hamner’s replacement starting in 2011. Hamner retires at the end of the 2010-11 school year.

Also on the agenda is a financial audit of the district’s budget and expenditures as well as a discussion of temporary graduation requirements for students at the alternative high school. The graduation requirements would be in place for one year while Board of Education members outline a permanent system.
