Our "Single Plan for Student Achievement" is the plan of actions to be taken to raise the academic performance of students and improve the schools education program. This plan includes 5 specific goals for Foothill School:
- To align writing strategies with the California content Standards and assist students' growth in writing across the genres.
- To expand and enhance teaching strategies and early intervention for meeting the needs of students with special learning needs.
- To support a science program that is inquiry based and provides opportunities for students to be actively engaged in discovery learning.
- To enhance interpersonal relationships and student social skills while encouraging respect and courtesy towards others.
- To continue to improve student achievement as assessed by the California Standards Tests and the Mars Test.
