Welcome

December 23, 2014

Dear Parents:

Each year, the state of Colorado looks at the performance of our students on state assessments, and gives each school a rating based on an analysis of those scores. These ratings then determine what kind of improvement plan each school will be assigned. Schools may be required to implement a performance plan, improvement plan, priority improvement plan, or turnaround plan. Performance plans require the least amount of change and turnaround plans require the most dramatic strategies for improvement.

 

Based on the results, our school is required to develop a priority improvement plan. We met or approached expectations in the following areas.

  • Academic growth in reading, math, writing and English Language Proficiency (ACCESS)

  • Academic growth gaps in reading for free/reduced lunch eligible, minority students, English learners, and students needing to catch up

  • Academic growth gaps in math for free/reduced lunch eligible, minority students, English learners, and students needing to catch up

  • Academic growth gaps in writing for free/reduced lunch eligible, minority students, students with disabilities, English learners, and students needing to catch up

 

But according to the ranking, these are areas where we did not meet expectations.

  • Reading achievement

  • Math achievement

  • Writing achievement

  • Academic growth gaps in reading for students with disabilities

  • Academic growth gaps in math for students with disabilities

 

We have developed a plan to address the areas where we did not meet expectations and will submit a two-year plan to the state by January 15, 2015.

 

If you would like to know how we are addressing improvement areas in the plan and receive an update on our progress in implementing last year’s plan, please plan to attend the following meetings.

  • School Accountability Meeting: January 20 at 3:45 pm in the library

  • School Accountability Meeting: March 10 at 3:45 pm in the library

  • School Accountability Meeting: May 12 at 3:45 pm in the library

 

Sincerely,

Mark Thompson, Ed. D.

Principal
