Values, Expectations, and Commitment - Teachers must commit
themselves to the School's values and mission. Moreover,
appreciating the example of excellent schools which succeed at
helping all students achieve at a high level, teachers must hold
high expectations for each student and commit themselves to helping
every student achieve their full potential.
Student Learning - Every teacher must accept ultimate
responsibility for his or her students achieving learning progress
that meets or exceeds the School's high standards and must actively
develop solutions to problems, reaching out for peer and leader
support, and taking advantage of other school resources, as
Teaching and Assessment - Teachers may make use of school-provided
curricular materials, or they may design their own, but they must
plan and deliver vibrant and engaging lessons - each with a
measureable goal - within the framework of the School's carefully
sequenced, standards-aligned education program and they must
administer school-provided formative assessments on a regular basis
so instruction can be targeted to their students' needs.
Culture and Classroom Management - Teachers must communicate, and
also model for their students, behaviors which befit the high
expectations culture and the caring school climate to which we are
committed. They must apply School and classroom rules consistently
and effectively; make use of preventive discipline; and effectively
supervise students both in their classroom and elsewhere on School
Teamwork, Professional Relations, and Professional Development -
Teachers should see themselves as members of a team and should
commit themselves to their own and to their peers' on-going
professional development. Teachers will be required to attend
professional development sessions, to participate actively in
planning meetings, and to become part of a professional learning
community where they can lend assistance to, and gain assistance
from, their grade-level peers.
Special Needs Students and English Language Learners - Teachers
must work collaboratively with the school's special education and
ELL staff to implement the school's special education and ELL
programs and to comply with all state and federal regulations.
