  • 2019-2020  by 3% (H= 7%, D= 17%)

  • 2020-2021 by 3% (H=4, D= 14%)

  • 2021-2022 by 3% (H = 1%, D= 11%)

Strategy 1 Across math strands, teachers will  develop a deeper conceptual understanding of the continuum of mathematical learning that will increase student conceptual understanding and procedural fluency.
