Parent and Teacher Conferences are next week! Tuesday, January 27, 2015 will be conferences by invitation only. Teachers will be getting together with their team to determine students and parents that they would like to meet with to develop a plan to end the year successfully. On Thursday, January 29, 2015, conferences are open forum. Parents can come between 4:45-8:30 to see any teachers they need to speak with about their child's performance at school. We look forward to meeting with you next week.

Dear Parents and Community Members:

 

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 some areas including Academic Growth (Approaching in Reading, Mathematics, Writing, and English Language Proficiency) and Academic Growth Gaps Approaching in numerous subgroups and content areas). Please feel free to schedule an appointment with a member of the administration team and we will go over the School Performance Frameworks in more depth with you. According to the ranking, these are areas where we did not meet expectations: Academic Achievement (Reading, Mathematics, and Writing) and Academic Growth Gaps for Students with Disabilities in Mathematics. 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 our School Accountability Committee Meetings. We have already had two meetings for the year and the committee members have helped us make decisions about our plans and supports for students moving forward. We would enjoy input from other voices as well. Our next meeting will be on Tuesday, January 27, 2015 from 5:30-6:30. If you cannot attend this meeting but would like to be involved in future meetings, please call 970-348-3609 or email dhillman@greeleyschools.org for more information.

 

Thank you,

 

Dawn Hillman

Principal
