2015-16 School Goal 

Through a focused professional development process directed at areas identified as deficient in the literacy audit, a strategic use of our intervention period time to focus on those strategies, and a comprehensive training and literacy support system for all staff, 60 percent of 6th-8th grade students at JC McKenna will reach proficient or advanced on the Forward Exam.
