The three foundational pillars of our building goals include:

Technology, MTSS Process and Standards Work.

We will continue the full implementation of our character education program incorporating important new strategies aimed to deter mean and cruel behavior.



We will decrease the number of students in the “red zone” by 18% & 25% in Reading and Mathematics respectively per I-Ready data by strengthening the MTSS processes and teacher support.



IT Professional Development will reflect the needs of JES staff and consistently receive positive feedback as to value and usefulness.


Standards Work

Continue the refinement of standards implementation, while incorporating new curriculum resources including Lucy Calkins’ Writing Units of Study and Reflex Math.




  • The MTSS team will provide professional development around evidence-based strategies for JES staff, once a month for at least 20 minutes, as documented in our weekly planning calendar.
  • Interventionists will lead vertical conversations and model strategies.  Teachers will input data into Alpine and provide feedback through exit tickets to determine the effectiveness of current strategies.



  • Teachers will consistently rate the Professional Development events using a 5-point rating scale.
  • The Technology team will provide 5 differentiated professional development opportunities focused on the use of devices, applications, and websites for classroom use.
  • Teachers will provide feedback through exit tickets to determine the effectiveness using a 5-point scale.
  • Students will provide teachers with feedback regarding the use of technology in the classroom using a 5-point scale.


Standards Work:

  • Compliments to on-going CAS (Colorado Academic Standards) work include-
    • Piloting Lucy Calkins’ Units of Study in Opinion/Argument, Information, and Narrative Writing, Grades K-8
    • Piloting Reflex Math in Grades 1-5
      • Individualized instruction for math fact fluency including universal screening and progress monitoring to support data based decision-making.
