4 To engage all students in a customized educational experience that prepares them to be self-sufficient and contributing members of a global community. Vision Statement For all students to be successful, it is our commitment to provide customized educational opportunities and quality instruction that promote creativity, collaboration and problem-solving in a safe, supportive environment. Our graduates will take their place in a global society as productive and responsible citizens and lifelong learners. Shared Values The Lower Dauphin District is committed to excellence, high expectations, fiscal responsibility, and must be accountable to the individual students, as well as to the public. We believe the following are vital to the success of the educational process: Student Each student can learn and succeed. The student, as a unique individual, is the foundation of the educational process. We are committed to providing the opportunities that support the student s natural desire to learn, develop abilities, expand interests, and improve decision-making skills. These efforts should enable and empower students to be responsible and take ownership of their own learning, to recognize their obligations in a democratic society, and to experience the joys of life-long learning. Staff A highly skilled and dedicated professional and support staff is a vital factor in the educational process. Each member of the staff is a guiding force in the progression of each student toward the achievement of full potential. Staff members collectively design and implement the learning process through application of their knowledge and through concern for the students as unique individuals. Home The home shares a significant responsibility for the education of each student by providing a nurturing environment that is supportive of the school and its programs. Family involvement should be encouraged through cooperative planning, implementation of academic and non-academic programs and organizations, and reinforcement of the educational process. Environment

5 A stimulating and safe school environment is crucial to the success of the educational process. We are committed to creating an environment which fosters resiliency in our students, encourages the desire for learning, fosters creativity and problem-solving, promotes respect for self and others, and demonstrates a spirit of cooperation and collaboration through effective use of instructional strategies. Resources Quality resources help promote the success of the educational process. We are committed to providing facilities that are carefully designed and well maintained. We recognize that technology is essential to realizing our goal to meet the changing needs of an individual in our complex global society. Community The school district must recognize its place in the greater global society, must be a partner with the community, must respond to its diverse needs, and must recognize the community s contributions to a strong educational program. By promoting the above beliefs, the Lower Dauphin District will meet the challenging needs of a global society and will act as a dynamic source of social improvement. al Community The Lower Dauphin District is made up of five municipalities - the Borough of Hummelstown and the Townships of Conewago, East Hanover, Londonderry and South Hanover. Lower Dauphin covers close to 90-square miles and is home to 24,736 residents. The district traces its roots back to 1952 when Hummelstown Borough and the Townships of Conewago, Londonderry and South Hanover incorporated to form the Hummelstown Joint District. East Hanover Township joined the renamed Lower Dauphin Joint District in In 1966, total district consolidation was realized with the appointment of the district s first Superintendent of s. Today the Lower Dauphin District is home to five K-5 neighborhood elementary schools, a middle school (grades 6-8), and a high school (grades 9-12). Additionally, the Price is used to educate students in three alternative educational classrooms. There is an elementary school building in each of

6 the district's four townships. Hummelstown Borough is home to our fifth elementary building, our middle school, our high school, our alternative school and our district administration center. With the exception of Hummelstown Borough, the majority of the district is rural with rolling farmlands and scattered housing developments. According to figures from the 2010 Census, 32 percent of our households in Lower Dauphin have children under 18 years of age. Breaking those figures down, we find that 1.4 percent of our population is kindergarten-aged; 12 percent of our population is classified as elementary-aged (grades 1-8); and 5.6 percent are high school age. Looking at the Census data for educational attainment of our residents aged 25 and older, we see that 9.9 percent of our population does not hold a high school diploma. Some 27.5 percent hold a bachelor or advanced degree. The Census calculates the mean household income for our school district at $79,159. District records show that nearly 20 percent of our 3,782 students qualified for the federal Free & Reduced Lunch program. The percent of students who qualify per building ranges from 8 percent to 41 percent. For the most part, our school district is a rural, suburban community with little in the way of industry and workers commuting a distance to their place of employment. The three largest employers physically located within the boundaries of the school district are the Three Mile Island Nuclear Generating Station (Exelon), Hollywood Casino at Penn National Race Course, and the Lower Dauphin District.

15 Curriculum and maps were aligned to Learning Focused s (LFS) Curriculum framework. Modifications and Accommodations Explain how planned instruction contains modifications and accommodations that allow all students at all mental and physical ability levels to access and master a rigorous standards aligned curriculum. Lower Dauphin uses several processes to accomodate the needs of individual students. Through differentiated instruction in the regular classroom, the RtII process, or through Individualized Programs, students are afforded necessary modifications and accomodations to meet their needs. Additionally, there is after school tutoring and summer school education to compliment the regular school day instruction.

18 The best method of improving student performance is hiring quality professionals. Lower Dauphin has many steps in the hiring process, including advertising for recruitment, to bring the best to our students. There is a commitment to put the strongest instructors with the most at-risk students and buildings.

21 Development and Validation of Local Assessments If applicable, explain the District's procedures for developing locally administered assessments and how they are independently and objectively validated every six years. At the elementary level the assessments and assessment calendar are reviewed on a yearly basis by the instructional coaches, teachers, and administrative staff (building and district level). At the secondary level the common assessments were developed based on the PA Standards, Anchors, and Eligible Content. We are in the process of re-writing our common assessments to align with the PA Common Core Stanadards with increased rigor. A plan will be established to review the assessments at the end of each year and correlate the results to the Keystone results, grades, and other authentic assessments used. Collection and Dissemination Describe the District's system to collect, analyze and disseminate assessment data efficiently and effectively for use by District leaders and instructional teams. The district currently uses Assessment Builder and Performance Tracker to store results and provide reports to guide instructional decisions. The staff has received training on how to access results and a Tier 1 approach to analyzing results as a team has been developed to guide best practices and adjust instruction to meet the needs of all students. Data Informed Instruction Describe how information from the assessments is used to assist students who have not demonstrated achievement of the academic standards at a proficient level or higher. Results from the assessments are used to guide instructional decisions, interventions, and program decisions for students.
