OAK HEIGHTS Principal Josh Dargis, right, meets with teachers, clockwise, Rohan Cordy of Holley, Marybeth Angulo of Oak Heights, Delis Rose of Hawthorne, Michelle Hatchard of Hawthorne, Rosie Clifford of Hawthorne, Patricia Kagler of Foster, Susan Walling of Foster, and Gwen Philipsen of Oak Heights, most of them second-grade teachers.

On a Friday morning earlier this month, a group of second-grade teachers from all of the district’s grade schools are gathered in a classroom at Hawthorne Elementary School, animatedly discussing test scores.

Down the hall, fourth-grade instructors from all of Sweet Home’s schools are discussing what their students need to learn to better meet state educational standards. Teachers from other grades are gathered in other classrooms up and down the halls.

These meetings are part of a new effort, begun by administrators, to address shortfalls in student achievement in the district.
