The Mercer Island School District's Board of Directors systemically measures the District's attainment of Board Policy 1800 OE-01: Student-Focused Fundamentals
. Pursuant to an annual planning calendar established by the Board, the superintendent must show reasonable progress toward organizational accomplishment of the Student Focused Fundamentals.
The Board monitors these Fundamentals both quantitatively and qualitatively. Monitoring the Fundamentals allows the Board and the community to contextualize how our educational programs are “benchmarking” its progress toward these Student-Focused Fundamentals and the District’s Values, Vision and Mission contained in Board Policy 0001
This page contains historical monitoring documents for the seven Student-Focused Fundamentals.
