School Plan for Continuous Improvement
German Mills P.S. is committed to supporting the Board's literacy focus under the three Board focus areas of Quality Schools, Building Family and Community Capacity and Quality Workplaces.
The following is an outline of our school's Plan for Continuous Improvement including highlights of some of the strategies to support student achievement.
