SWOT ANALYSIS
Resources

1. Extend learning to before- and after-school programs as well as summer programs: This
could help close achievement gaps that are seen in the school. This program can be
used with current teachers who are highly qualified. These teachers can be
compensated for their time. Currently using Collierville High School as student tutors.
2. Technology Night- Parents can attend a technology night to be introduced to how the
school will change once we become 1:1. My school is already having a technology night
to show parents how to use different types of technology and to show them how to
navigate on different apps.
3. Create a service learning activity- character.org this website provides ideas of different
service learning activities performed by other schools. This can help students take part
in their community and learn about how important it is to be connected to their
community.
4. COLLIERVILLEEDUCATIONFOUNDATION.Org This link provides teachers an opportunity
to write grants for classroom materials. They Collierville Education Foundation provides
funding that teachers may need, but dont have access to. This can help teachers with
their lesson and can bring in technology.

families with the community and school.

help with introducing money and savings to students. This can help students who may
not be from a financially stable home learn at an early age that it is important to save.
