• LGMMS School Improvement Team (SIT) brings together representatives from all LGMMS stakeholder groups: teachers from all teams and grade levels, parents, administrators, and community members. The team's main responsibility is developing and implementing the School Improvement Plan (SIP), which keeps the school focused throughout the year on overall improvement and success for every child. The SIP is a unique plan, refined annually, that defines a school’s targeted work to raise achievement for all our students. Our SIP is guided by twelve key indicators which include a set of key strategies aimed at measurable, research-based goals, monitored throughout the year, in the following five areas:

      • Instructional Excellence and Alignment
      • Leadership Capacity
      • Professional Capacity
      • Planning and Operational Effectiveness
      • Families and Community
