New math curriculum, aligned with state common core standards have been adopted and language arts will follow. Principal Rick Hale, McCain Middle School is confident that "with our newly aligned K-8 math curriculum and our current efforts to align language arts district wide the middle school scores will show significant improvement."

The Initiative for Developing Mathematical Thinking (IDMT), a state-renowned consulting group, will provide professional development for teachers and administrators. The goal is to enhance student achievement in mathematics. DMTI believes that all students can succeed in mathematics and that teachers have perhaps the most significant impact on student learning.

The plan for academic success involves working
together to make certain that there is discussion and collaboration
