ASD board to set annual goals

The Ashland school board will set its annual goals at the general meeting Monday night at 7 p.m. in the Ashland Council Chambers.

In addition to implementing a strategic plan and monitoring the construction projects effectively, the board will focus on ensuring that all students make continuous improvement toward state standards in math and reading.

Strategies to meet this goal could include establishing a committee to address declining enrollment and reform issues at the high school, developing personal education plans for students in grades 7-12 and enhancing teacher collaboration to track student progress.

The agenda includes several other items relating to student progress and achievement.

Superintendent Juli Di Chiro will present current enrollment numbers and data from the district's adequate yearly progress report in conjunction with No Child Left Behind standards.

The board will review the academic policy for high school athletes. The policy, implemented last year, requires student athletes exceed state standards by passing five classes in the current semester with a grade of "C" or better in order to compete. State standards require only a passing grade in five classes.

Presenters will also provide updates on the construction projects, summer maintenance and financial reports.
