Continuous Improvement Plan

The New Lebanon Local School District is committed to maintaining a district-wide focus on high achievement for all students. In April, 2011, the District Leadership Team used a data-driven decision making process to identify critical needs for the district as a whole and for each school. Based on these needs, the Team developed a three-year plan with goals and research-based strategies. During the next three years, we will continue to collect, review, and analyze data to make sure our instructional practices are having a positive impact on student performance.

The following Goals and Strategies are the next steps in our Continuous Improvement Plan:
