The “Vital Few”

One of the greatest challenges in education today is the struggle to maintain focus on what matters most for student learning while meeting the demands of a host of continuing initiatives. In Wisconsin, we now face state and federal initiatives ranging from:

•Standardized Assessments

•New Models of Teacher and Principal Evaluation

•New School Accountability Methods and Measures

Research asserts the importance of concentrated and sustained effort: schools that focus on a “vital few” improvement strategies outperform those that lack focus. In Westfield we are working hard to maintain our focus and put our energy and resources into the “vital few” to enhance student learning.
