"When the school has the opportunity to collaborate as a staff of teachers using LSPI goals and data for improvement efforts, it allows for the opportunity of unified expectation. Using the data collectively allows all teachers to see the common challenges and strengths so that lessons and efforts are more accurately focused. Common improvement efforts and goals formed through community collaboration allow for strong efforts towards equal educational opportunities for all students on all levels. Scaffolding becomes efficient without lowering the bar when common goals are set and when all students are held accountable for common improvements, also allowing all students to reach for the same goal regardless of their prior knowledge and retention of that knowledge."
