Gwinnett County School District logo

Accountability and flexibility are hallmarks of Gwinnett County Public Schools' success. Key to that success is ensuring that each school community understands the progress being made by its schools, as well as what plans will drive improvement. Each school creates a collaborative Local School Plan for Improvement (LSPI) to increase student achievement results, with targeted goals based on the four strategic priorities within the district’s Blueprint for the Future: Empathy, Equity, Effectiveness, and Excellence. All schools across the district will focus on goals 2A- Multi-tiered Systems of Support and 2B- Opportunity and Access. Additionally, schools are required to select one goal from each of the other strategic priorities. LSPI goals are dynamic, like our schools, and are updated to reflect changes that occur in schools. Multiple data points are used to determine areas needing improvement and to identify specific, measurable, annual objectives. Schools then determine how to use research-based strategies to achieve these goals, using flexibility as needed. The LSPI development process involves teachers, parents, students, and community members, so the entire school community has the opportunity to be involved in conversations about school improvement.

Effectiveness 3.A - Results-Based Evaluation System

McClure Health Science High School's effectiveness is fundamentally linked to student success.  By aligning inputs, behaviors, and outcomes with the RBES, we can provide each and every student an improved student experience. 

1. We provide opportunities for teachers to observe and discuss each other's practices through Wonder Walks (peer observations), feedback, and coaching.

2. We support collaborative learning teams by utilizing a school-wide collaborative learning teams agenda that includes:

  • What do we want our students to learn?
  • How will we teach it?
  • How will we know when our students have learned?
  • How will we respond when students learn? How will we respond when students don't learn?

3. We will continue our work with RBES to ensure that all faculty goals are aligned with the local school plan for improvement.
