HIGHLANDS HIGH'S CHALLENGING SCHOOLWIDE GOALS FOR STUDENT ACHIEVEMENT
Highlands High school will reduce the percentage of students who are non-proficient on the California Standards Tests in both English Language Arts and Mathematics by 10% or more from the prior year.
To do so, teachers will record and analyze quarterly student achievement data and work intensely with specific non-proficient students.
To monitor progress toward meeting these goals, HHS will develop student assessment benchmarks/timelines for each quarter.
