Fairview Elementary School NC Report Card
Dear Fairview Families and Friends,
We provide regular updates to you about your student’s academic progress by sending home a Report Card. Once a year we provide you with updates on our school’s achievements through the North Carolina School Report Card.
This Report Card includes important information about school and student performance, class sizes, attendance, school safety, instructional resources, and teacher quality. There also is information about how our school measured against federal Adequate Yearly Progress (AYP) targets and the number of suspensions and expulsions in our school. Report data is available for our school district and for the state’s education system as a whole.
I have enclosed with this letter a summary of our Report Card called the Report Card Snapshot. Our school’s full Report Card can be found on the NC School Report Cards’ website athttp://www.ncreportcards.org. School Report Cards are provided for regular public schools, charter schools and alternative schools that were open during the 2014-2015 school year.
The numbers only tell part of the story. At our school, we are proud to have welcomed approximately one-hundred new families last year. Our goal has been to ensure that these new students and their families integrate into our school community seamlessly and feel like part of the Fairview Elementary family. During the 2014-2015 school year, we are very proud to have met 26 out of 27 of our state and federal AMO targets. We also met our growth goal set by the state. This year, we have continued to emphasize continuous school improvement with a focus on implementing Google classroom, implementing a research-based vocabulary program, as well as, our teachers have participated in professional development in the areas of reading workshop and differentiated math instruction. Our grade level teams collaborate in professional learning communities to improve their instructional strategies and data driven instruction. We also provide many extracurricular opportunities for our students including the Wildcat Running club, Art club, Singing Wildcat chorus, the Good News club, FESN broadcast team, and student media assistants.
State and local education leaders are committed to providing parents with more information about schools. Well-informed parents who participate in their children’s education and school enhance the learning environment for students and educators alike. In addition, the federal No Child Left Behind Act requires schools to issue Report Cards.
At Fairview Elementary your involvement is very important to the success of our school! I encourage you to review our Report Card carefully, then feel free to contact me directly to discuss any questions or concerns you may have regarding the Report Card. I also welcome your feedback regarding other interests you have in our school.
Thank you for allowing me to share this Report Card with you and for supporting our efforts to provide your child with a high-quality education. We are very proud to continue be a School of Distinction with high growth!
Kelly Thomas, Principal
