Plum Creek 100 percent on target for 1.5 years growth goal for students

Plum Creek honored for reaching 100% target for 1.5

Lockhart ISD administrators, LISD Board Vice President Michael Wright, and Trustee Carl Cisneros joined Plum Creek Elementary staff and students in a special assembly Tuesday morning to celebrate the campus being the first in the school district to be 100 percent on target for meeting the goal of at least 70 percent of all students on track for 1.5 years growth within the school year. 

In LISD, the district set targets for at least 70 percent of all students to achieve 1.5 years of growth in reading and math by the end of the school year, regardless of whether they are an advanced learner or a struggling learner. District and campus leaders continuously track the progress data of student growth, and as teachers demonstrate meeting the target, they are recognized with a special pin with the 1.5 logo. This pins are badges of honor for teachers who strive for students to grow by 1.5 years.

Since LISD implemented the 1.5 years growth targets two years ago, the district has seen increases in the number of teachers hitting the targets, but this is the first time a campus within LISD has achieved 100 percent of their teachers meeting the target. 

Superintendent Mark Estrada addressed Plum Creek students and staff, congratulating them on their relentless focus on growth and results. “When I was in your hallway, I saw a sign that said, ‘Great teachers and great student leaders know the way, show the way, go the way, and grow each day-- #PCE Proud,’” said Superintendent Estrada. “I think that’s awesome! Everything you are doing is outstanding.” He also presented Plum Creek Principal Jamee Griebel and Assistant Principal Latoya Taylor with a special banner to hang up on campus, celebrating the achievement. 

Griebel and Taylor were also honored at the LISD Board meeting Tuesday evening for being the first to achieve all teachers being 100 percent on target for 1.5 years growth goals. The Board presented them with the Legacy of Excellence Coin, an honor only given by the Board to those who exemplify excellence in Lockhart ISD.
