HWRSD 2021/22 District Goals Report

Presented to the HWRSD School Committee June 1, 2022

The District goals for the 21-22 school year were developed to help us to begin much-needed work that is directly connected to long-term planning, improving teaching and learning, meeting the needs of all students via MTSS and inclusive practices, increasing access to World Languages, and improvement of facilities and grounds.

This report is organized by the individual goals and has been completed by the members of the HWRSD leadership team. During the year, members of the leadership team were assigned to manage certain individual goals, and some goals, like MTSS, were organized by school levels.

2021/22 HWRSD District Goals

GOAL 1: Build District Vision and Strategic Plan: The Superintendent, School Committee, and the District Leadership team will actively engage the community in a Portrait of a Graduate visioning process in Fall 2021 to build community consensus around the district’s work and how its limited resources should be invested. The Portrait will serve as the fundamental guiding document for the Strategic Plan development in Spring 2022

GOAL 2: Improve Teaching and Learning: The district will create an intentional and sustainable Multi-Tiered System of Support MTSS to ensure that our students’ academic and social-emotional needs are met. 

Goal 2A: Build and Implement a Robust K-5 Reading MTSS Structure: By the end of the 2021-22 school year, the Hamilton-Wenham Regional School District will target improving district reading outcomes at the elementary level by designing and implementing a cohesive Multi-Tiered System of Support (MTSS) across all three elementary schools. 

Goal 2B: Implement Secondary Classroom Practices that will Serve as the Foundation to an MTSS Structure at MRMS and HWRHS: By the end of the 2021-22 school year, the staff and faculty of the MRMS and HWRHS will restore and refine previously agreed upon universal strategies for accessing classroom instruction and design a Multi-Tiered System of Support (MTSS) for the secondary level.

Goal 2C: Identify a High-Quality, Sustainable Design for World Language Instruction: A World Language Advisory Committee will be established in the fall of 2021 and tasked with developing a recommendation for a long-term vision for World Language instruction in the HWRSD. This advisory committee will present its recommendation to the School Committee no later than Nov. 30, 2021. 

GOAL 3: Commit to Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion (DEI) practices: The Hamilton-Wenham Regional School District will meet the evolving and varied needs of all of our students and school community members in a manner that respects and values each individual, and: recognizes, acknowledges, and celebrates the presence of differences in all community members; promotes justice, impartiality, and fairness; welcomes and invites diversity in decision-making processes and developing opportunities for our community. 

GOAL 4: Improving Learning Environments: Students in the Hamilton-Wenham Regional School District will have access to learning environments that are safe, clean and sustainable. District learning environments shall be a source of civic pride for the entire community. The District shall collaborate with both the towns of Hamilton and Wenham to plan significant capital investments effectively.
