At Waunakee Intermediate School, we are committed to helping each student reach their full potential. To guide our efforts, our school improvement team meets annually during an activity we call our School Improvement Institute, or SII. During the summer of 2023, a team of teachers, administrators, and other school staff from Waunakee Intermediate School gathered together at SII to review data and create our School Improvement Plan for the 2023-2024 school year. Operating under the umbrella of our Waunakee Community School District’s strategic priorities, we developed two goals for continuous improvement for the 2023-2024 school year.
- In order to improve student literacy skills, teacher teams will utilize student achievement data, with a focus on summarizing texts, to differentiate instruction within each unit so that 83% of our students demonstrate proficiency on classroom summative assessments at the end of each unit.
- In order to become more independent and engaged learners, all students will participate in goal setting and self-reflection activities throughout the school year to promote growth in self-management as measured by a student and staff self-reflection rubric.
We believe these two goals will help create an environment where all students can thrive academically and develop as independent learners. To achieve this, we value the support and involvement of parents. Please reach out to your child's teachers to learn more about how you can support learning at home.
With our dedicated staff and engaged families working together, we know we can make great progress to support each student's growth and success this school year!
