Board Goals

Goals for the GSD Board - 2022-23 School Year

  1.  The board will focus on actions and services which assist staff in meeting the two primary goals as set forth by the ELD Department. Those goals for this year are:
    1. To provide each one of them [students], as individual learners, with the tools they need to access grade-level instruction and equitable opportunities for both core and elective classes; and
    2. To design and implement an ELD plan that makes the greatest long-term use of our resources in a way that provides ELL students with the best opportunities for language acquisition as early as possible in their educational experience with [the district].

To help facilitate those goals the board will:

a.  engage in learning inquiry and professional development opportunities to learn more about who these students are and the long-term ramifications for students who are unable to exit the program;

b.  commit to community engagement and listening sessions with staff, students, parents and other stakeholders to understand how the board can create opportunities through actions such as budgeting and policymaking to address barriers; and

c.  adopt a districtwide equity tool based on the “Resolution and Commitment to Educational Access and Inclusion” adopted in the 2021-22 school year.

2. The board will use Long-Range Facility Planning Committee data to select district facilities most in need of improvement regarding ongoing safety issues, optimal learning spaces, and increased student, staff and community use.

a.  The board will use steps outlined in the updated district Strategic Plan to guide this work.

Board Roles

  1. Select & evaluate the Superintendent for the District.
