East Elementary School NC Report Card
Dear East Elementary Parents,
We provide regular updates to you about your student’s academic progress by sending home report cards, progress reports, and meeting with parents for conferences. In addition, we provide you with yearly updates on our school’s achievements through the North Carolina School Report Card.
The NC School Report Card includes important information about school and student performance, class sizes, attendance, school safety, instructional resources, and teacher quality. There is also information about the target goals met with the federal Annual Measurable Objectives (AMOs), as well as information on school safety and access to technology. Report data is available for our school district and for the state’s education system as a whole.
The East Elementary staff has utilized the report card data along with other data sources to define the current school improvement efforts. The 2014-2015 school marked the beginning of a school wide transformational process that has taken our team all the way back to defining the foundational question of, “Why does our school exist?” I am proud that EES has collectively agreed that, “We exist to ensure a lifetime of learning for ALL students so that they may become successful members of society.” Our team further defined the vision and values of our school where we have created the picture of what our school will look like when we realize our mission and how we must behave as an organization in order to realize our mission. The team also created a school focus on reading by establishing the school imperative, “Read to Understand. Read Deeper. Soar Higher.” Finally, we began assessing instructional structures in our school that can enhance and support the growth of our students in the 2015-2016 school year.
Based on the NC School Report Card we did not make growth. We have already begun implementing major instructional shifts in grades K-5 and will closely monitor the impact of first time instruction and intervention on student performance so we can meet our 2015-2016 School Improvement Goals. However, these results do not reflect the whole story of EES as a school. Our dedicated team had a record low number of staff turnover for the 2015-2016 school year and our team provides both a safe and healthy learning environment as well as research based instructional models and practices. To support our commitment to continue to improve we have a curriculum team in place to support our teachers with enhancing instructional practices. We also have excellent community partners who now support us with our school improvement efforts.
I encourage you to explore the school report card at www.ncreportcards.org. If you have further questions about the report card or our school improvement initiatives at EES please feel free to call East Elementary School. If you would like to join our group of community supporters or would like to pass on feedback about areas of EES that are important to you please contact us. Your feedback is important to us.
