Mission - Learning the fundamentals to prepare  ALL students to be lifelong learners.

Vision - Grouse Creek School builds student and community relationships to facilitate rigorous and relevant instruction for students at all academic levels and ensures that each student has the tools to achieve academic success.


  • Lead by example

  • Be prepared

  • Provide a positive safe learning environment for all students

  • Be an accountable team member

    Goal#1:   100% of Grouse Creek  students will make progress towards the benchmark as measured by the Acadience benchmark when taken in the spring of 2021. Students will each increase their words per minute by at least 10 words per minute. 

     Academic Area: Reading

    ○ Measurement: Data taken January 2019, indicates that 0% of Grouse Creek students k-6 are reading at grade level benchmark as measured by the Acadience assessment. Based on this baseline data, we feel that the increasing 10 words a minute goal is attainable. 2019 BOY data reported that the average reading fluency was 49 wpm. 2020 MOY data reported the average reading fluency was 70.5 wmp.  100% of students will make reading skill progress. We will use the Acadience assessment in May 2020 (possibly), September 2020, and January 2021 as measurements of progress. We will also use the progress monitoring (pathway progress) growth. 

    Action Steps:
    1- Give students diagnostic assessments (BEPA), BOY acadience testing results to identify specific reading skills needed.
    2- Integrate high interest lexile level appropriate materials.
    3-All reading teachers will instruct using correct reading techniques and instructional strategies.
    3- Teachers will give formative assessments as students acquire and progress in their reading development.
    4- Identified students will receive individualized tier 3 interventions which will include individualized one one one tutoring utilizing the read naturally program.
    6- Teachers will use district approved programs (SHELL Fluency). 
    5- Supplies will be purchased to build STEM kits. The kits will allow students to integrate their reading fluency in order to solve real life applicable problems.These hands on projects will allow for hands on engagement and comprehension. Students will have to understand what they are doing and why. 

    ○ Expenditures
    ■ Grouse Creek will be  purchasing supplies needed to facilitate student learning and improve reading through STEM non fiction project kits. The kits will focus on nonfiction  and Reading Naturally materials. 

    How publicized? School website, school assemblies, flyers, Sticker and stamps that identify purchases made with School LAND Trust funds.
    If additional funds are available how will they be used? Additional intervention supplies for STEM.
