  • 1. Half Hollow Hills Systemic Improvement Plan
  • 2. Howard Gardner <ul><li>“ I would be happy to send my children to a school with the following characteristics: differences among children are taken seriously, knowledge about differences is shared with children and parents, children gradually assume responsibility for their own learning, and materials that are worth knowing are presented in ways that afford each child the maximum opportunity to master those materials and to show others (and themselves) what they have learned and understood.” </li></ul>
  • 3. Overall Goal <ul><li>To develop a district-wide vision for teaching and learning so that teachers and administrators understand our direction and share responsibility for connecting those ideas we espouse with those that are part of our daily practice. </li></ul>
