Indistar Plan

Indistar® is a web-based system implemented by a state education agency, district, or charter school organization for use with district and/or school improvement teams to inform, coach, sustain, track, and report improvement ac-tivities.

Similar to a global positioning system (GPS), Indistar® tells you where you are and helps you get to where you want to be — every child learning and every school improving. Indistar® is stocked with indicators of evidence-based practices at the district, school, and classroom levels to improve student learning. But Indistar® is also customizable, so that the client (SEA, LEA, or charter organization) can populate or enhance the system with its own indicators of effective practice. The system also accommodates rubrics for assessment of the indicators.

Parents may log onto Indistar to view the School Improvement of Lee High School. The following is a list of the reports that Parents may view:

  • Celebrate Our Success!

    This report shows indicators which have been determined by the Leadership Team to be fully implemented, either in the team’s initial assessment or after meeting the objective for the indicator. These indicators are the school’s norms, what is done routinely and with high quality.

  • Where Are We Now?

    This is an overview of the school’s execution of its plan for improvement in graph form, as well as a list of fully implemented and completed indicators.

  • Comprehensive Plan

    Here you will see a detailed description of the improvement plan including all assessments, plans, tasks, monitoring, and implementation information.

  • Summary Report

    This report displays summary information such as the number of meetings held, number of indicators assessed and planned, number of coaching comments, and forms submitted as well as district leadership team information.

  • Accomplishments Report

    Here you will see indicators asessed as fully implemented or indicators for which plans were created and the objective is now met.

How it works for students
Students can make use of our extensive video library, practice exercises, and assessments from any computer with access to the web.

Over 2100 videos
The Academy's library of videos covers K-12 math, science topics such as biology, chemistry, and physics, and even reaches into the humanities with playlists on finance and history. Each video is a digestible chunk, approximately 10 minutes long, and especially purposed for viewing on the computer.

Jefferson Lab:

As a world-class research facility, Jefferson Lab is a valued partner to the local, regional and national education community. Jefferson Lab's long-term commitment to science education continues to focus on increasing the number of teachers with a substantial background in math and science, strengthening the motivation and preparation of all students, especially minorities and females, and addressing the serious under representation of minorities and females in science, math, engineering and technology careers.

Lee High School’s beliefs are:

  1. We believe in the worth of all students and believe that their worth will be increased by providing tools to be life-long learners.
  2. We believe that students must understand that they are the ones ultimately responsible for their learning.
  3. We believe that diversity is a strength and should be celebrated, both in the content of our curriculum and the make-up of our student body.
  4. We believe that a safe, positive, and supportive atmosphere is invaluable.
  5. We believe that instruction should meet the needs of all students, regardless of the level of learning or the way in which they learn.
  6. We believe that technology positively impacts student achievement as it changes the teaching and learning environment.
We believe that Respect, Attitude, Cooperation, Effort, and Responsibility (R.A.C.E.R) are integral to success, and we strive to model and teach these values as a part of our curriculum
