Madison Elementary School Schoolwide program will include the following
components:

   1. Standards Based Curriculum, Assessment, and Instruction

      MES staff will focus on directly linking instruction to the NH GLEs. A variety of
      assessments both formative and summative will be utilized to determine student
      needs, judge instructional effectiveness, differentiate instruction and impact future
      planning. Student data will be reviewed to determine specific interventions. This
      process will be monitored over time and adjusted as needed.
      Standards-based instructional core programs will be aligned with NH GLEs to
      determine gaps. Curriculum will be mapped by grade level and subject to ensure
      consistency. Technology resources will increase in an effort to improve student
      learning and to assist staff in data collection and analysis.

      Students’ strengths, weaknesses, and growth will be monitored to make informed
      decisions. Curriculum Connector (TechPaths) will be adopted and teachers will
      be trained during the summer. Curriculum maps will be transferred into the new

      effectiveness.

      analyzed at grade level and student data meetings. Strategic and intensive
      students will be progress monitored as needed.
