Curriculum & Assessment
Curriculum plays a vital role in everything we do at Fruitport Community Schools. It is the basis for all initiatives and programming.
During the summer of 2005, Fruitport Community Schools created our first strategic plan called Fruitport’s Commitment to Success (FCS I). This plan was developed through feedback from the community, staff, and student body that culminated in a document of goals designed to provide the district direction for the next three years. As time has passed, our strategic plan has also changed in to bring about many improvements seen across the district.
The current plan (FCS III) was revised in the fall of 2014 to better reflect the district-wide initiative to develop teacher Professional Learning Communities (PLC). Below is a list of the strategic goals of that plan that we are working on in the Curriculum and Assessment Office as we strive to empower individuals to positively impact their world!
Students as Learners:
Teacher Collaborative Teams (Professional Learning Communities) will:
♦ Design an academic system so that every student receives the same quality content and instruction focused on college/career readiness.
♦ Develop common ways to measure student achievement and then dialogue on the results to make improvements to content and instruction.
♦ Implement intervention strategies that will address students who don’t meet learning expectations.
♦ Create opportunities for students to expand their learning in new, innovative, and non-traditional ways.
♦ Encourage parent involvement in the educational process.
♦ Engage students in the ongoing development of a vision and plan for their future.
Students as Developing Members of Society:
♦ School administrators will implement programming to address societal, social, emotional, and safety concerns (including bullying).
