Synthesize the demographic information and write a response to the following:

Miller Intermediate can improve by making better efforts to include parents in the
academic experience of their children. Also, Some coaching in teaching science could be used to
bring up the scores in science STAAR results. Furthermore, more support could be given to
student who are minorities because they are the largest group within the school with the lowest
performances gaines. The stakeholders in the school are obviously the parents of the children
that attend the school, as well as property owners that are zoned in the area of Miller
Intermediate. When the school performs better on the STAAR test, the property value of their
home goes up. As an administrator, the main aspect of the job that I would want to utilize is
getting the community involved in the student's academic gains.
