    School Improvement  at Brier Creek

    The School Improvement Team is charged with ensuring the School Improvement Plan is implemented with fidelity and is effectively moving our school toward our school goals. They do this through collaboration, data analysis, and careful planning of professional development for teachers and staff. Every staff member is responsible for implementing the School Improvement Plan and supporting the school's goals through service on a Navigation Crew. We have four Navigation Crews, each led by members of the School Improvement Team. The four Crews are:

    1. Curriculum and Instruction
    2. Safe and Orderly School
    3. Social-Emotional Learning
    4. Family and Community Connections
