School district completes new plan

Continue reading below

The Silver Lake School District has completed a new strategic plan stressing “equity and excellence” and addressing concerns about weak test scores by students with disabilities and a lack of creativity in the curriculum. Based on surveys of school district staff, local school committee members and community members, the plan’s other goals include “performance management, collaboration, communication and problem solving, and resource allocation.” The plan cites a need to align system resources among the schools and programs of the district’s three towns — Kingston, Halifax, and Plympton. It identifies weaknesses in academic performance by students with disabilities in a few of the district’s schools and calls for exploring more foreign language, enrichment, and technology courses and instruction, plus offering gifted and talented programs throughout the levels. Following focus groups held in the three communities last fall, the plan was drawn up by a task force consisting of staff and community members. It was presented publicly at a recent Silver Lake School Committee meeting. The plan is available on the Silver Lake District website, www.slrsd.org.
