By June 2015, the number of at risk students who meet regularly for mentoring will increase by 10% via STOMP (Student Teacher Outreaching Mentoring Program) and a second guidance counselor.

By December of 2015 all teachers of the four major subject areas will post weekly homework on the school website so that families can be continuously informed throughout the school year of given assignments and due dates essential to student success.
