WPS School Improvement
Wahoo Public Schools' Long Range Plan (5-year plan)
A noteworthy change that WPS has experienced over the past three to four years has been a shift to a more balanced focus on athletics, fine arts and academics. The foundation of this movement has been the working structure of our continuous school improvement process that set up a culture of making learning the focus. The process began with the development of a five-year plan that highlighted the Wahoo Way, goal setting at the district and classroom level, and utilizing PLCs to collaboratively monitor student achievement. In addition, this long-range plan prioritized the work of Robert Marzano, creation of a growth-based appraisal tool, implementation of 1:1 iPads, and the selection of web-based data and curriculum systems. The team has extended the Continuous Improvement Plan through 2018. Click HERE to view the plan.
