As a professional learning community, we educate the whole child by providing an engaging and challenging learning environment to ensure each student receives a premier education.
Our Theory of Action
Principals lead school-wide efforts to support teacher collaboration and increase students’ readiness to learn; and Teachers work together to provide instruction that is aligned with standards, consistent with the district’s scope and sequence, and differentiated to meet individual student needs; and Other school staff contribute to a school environment that fosters effective teaching and learning; and Central office staff work together to support school principals by setting clear expectations, providing needed resources in a timely manner, tracking and reporting on progress toward goals and facilitating communication with all stakeholders; and Students attend school prepared to engage in purposeful learning; and Families are engaged in supporting their students’ learning.
Student learning will increase and all York City students will continuously graduate prepared for college and careers.
