Throughout the summer, the Benton Community Teacher Leadership Team engaged in a book study on The Data Teams Experience by Angela B. Peery. This book study supports the work Benton Community teachers and administrators have been implementing the last few years. The data teams process is a process that supports continuous improvement. As Benton Community strives to the standard of educational excellence, structures like the data teams process supports us in analyzing data to support student achievement.
Teacher leaders spent time reading and reflecting on new information, current practice, and next steps around the data teams process. They then gathered to discuss more about what this looks like in action at all grades and contents across our system. Their commitment to learning and continuous improvement is inspiring. As you can see in the Benton Community Professional Learning Action Plan for the 2019-2020 school year, our focus will continue to be on ensuring all students are making a years growth.
