1 Status Report on Suffield Public Schools Strategic Plan Implementation 2014 The Suffield Public Schools Strategic Plan ( ) was adopted by the Board of Education in May 2012 and articulated 4 priority strategic goals that serve as key areas of developmental focus in the district. The Strategic Goals are: 1. Complete the policy, practice and cultural shifts needed to transition to a digital learning environment. 2. Design and implement a systemic plan for professional learning aligned with district needs. 3. Systematically use data to drive and improve practice 4. Create an aligned and accessible curriculum that embeds 21 st century skills and is aligned with Common Core Standards. The status report details the accomplishments in each goal area to date, and is broken down by the indicators of success defined in the Plan. The four goals continue to drive our work in improving quality tier I instruction, strengthening intervention and support strategies, and creating opportunities for teachers to collaborate with one another to improve the teaching and learning process. The budget development process of the past two years continues to support the integration of the district strategic plan and improvement initiatives.
