Addison Study Groups

Whole faculty study groups yearly examine collected data to establish the school’s learning improvement focus.

Whole Faculty Study Groups serve as the structure for staff development and school improvement. This study group process promotes collegial interchange and incorporates the action research cycle. The entire faculty is divided into study groups of approximately six (6) members per group. The study groups are cross grade level/ cross discipline to promote and ensure school wide focus. The membership of each group remains unchanged for the academic school year. The group meets weekly for one hour. Based on areas of identified need, each group chooses, plans, and implements its area of study. The selected areas of study should directly impact student learning and achievement. These research findings are presented at the end of the year at the State of the School Address.
