​​TRENDING AT FOCUS!

 

​​Welcome to the 2016-2017 School Year!

 

CEO's VISION

"REFOCUSING ON FOCUS"

The time has come for stakeholders of FOCUS Academies to refocus on FOCUS. refocusWe must institute a sense of urgency to improve student learning. We are a transformed organization, a laser beam focus on increased accountability, communication, and training designed to ensure students will learn and not “just be taught”.

This school year, FOCUS Academies’ staff will use reflective tools, which enable leaders to enact three learning agendas: improving student learning, enhancing professional learning, and building system-wide supports for all participants' learning. The framework tools help leaders clarify the mission and core values, promote professional community, and highlight the need for inquiry and engage all stakeholders in the school’s improvement process.

Based on school transformation research, FOCUS Academies will concentrate on the following initiatives: 

  • Establishing a FOCUS Academies Learning Model to improve and sustain high student learning and achievement
  • Building professional communities that value learning
  • Engaging and partnering with parents and the community in fundraising to support academic programs
  • Acting strategically and sharing leadership where staff take responsibility for learning and implementation of their ideas
  • Becoming leaders in Information, communication, and technology literacy and skills

We will no longer settle for mediocrity, excuses and lack of buy-in. We believe in VISION, ACTION, BUY-IN, and MORE ACTION. I believe that capacity building is making the most of people and then out of those resources making the most of the people resources and systems to deliver results. We will be a high performing team that produces high performing students.

Each stakeholder must actively participate in our programs so that we can effectively give our students life and career skills, learning and innovation skills along with information technology skills based on the 21st Century skills. Remember, this needed change is about encouraging, promoting, and producing high performing graduates who in turn will become productive citizens in this world.
