Comprehensive Achievement and Civic Readiness

Under Minnesota Statutes, section 120B.11, school boards are to adopt a long-term, comprehensive strategic plan to support and improve teaching and learning. This plan addresses the following five goals: 

Kindergarten readiness. The Delano School district will screen 100% of students entering Kindergarten prior to the first day of Kindergarten attendance. The percentage of students who were enrolled in our DPS Pre-School scoring in the LowRisk level on the  eReading assessment will increase from 84.8% in 2023 to 87% in 2024. 

Grade Level Literacy (new READ Act). Every child reading at or above grade level every year, beginning in kindergarten, and to support multilingual learners and students receiving special education services in achieving their individualized reading goals.

Closing achievement gaps. In 2023-24, within each subgroup (ELL, SPED and FRLP), we will increase the number of students who meet or exceed proficiency by 5% or more as measured by the 2024 MCA Reading and the 2024 MCA Math Assessments. In 2023-24, we will increase the percentage of ALL students who meet or exceed proficiency on the 2023 MCA Reading and MCA Math Assessments by 5%. 

Career and College Readiness. The District will increase the percent of students achieving CCR on the Reading MCA from 28.2 % in 2023 to 41% in 2024. The District will increase the percent of students achieving CCR on the Math MCA from 43.47% in 2023 to 56.08% in 2024.

Graduation: 100% of Delano High Students will graduate on time.
