During the 2018 school year, the SCC made changes to the goals for 2019. While reading remained a top priority for the school, a recent 2 year staff development project that has taken place at Spring Lake called Comprehensive Math Instruction (CMI) gave the council reason to change previous science goals to mathematics goals. The council also decided that Spring Lake Elementary needed improvement in its access to technology compared to other district schools and that improvements in the take home library were also needed to provide higher quality books for students to read at home each night. The 2019 goals reflect these discussions and decisions by the SCC. Results will be reported in October 2019.
