Fairview Elementary NC Report Card
September 30, 2022
Dear Fairview Families,
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. While test scores are one way to measure accountability and success, there are many other indicators of school quality that are important to our school staff, parents, and students. Our school continues to remain a School of Choice for many families that reside within Union County. Fairview Elementary focuses on treating all students and staff as family. Our goal is to make learning fun and challenging for our students. Our three main priorities are safety, academics, and school culture.
This Report Card includes important information about school and student performance, class sizes, attendance, school safety, instructional resources, and teacher quality. Report data is available for our school district and for the state’s education system as a whole.
Traditionally, our school has either met growth or exceeded growth. We also have maintained a School Performance Grade of a B. The 2021-2022 School Performance data indicates that our 3rd-5th grade students scored a B in the academic area of math. In the area of reading, our students scored a C. We met growth in the area of math and reading overall. However, due to the ongoing challenges brought on by the pandemic, our overall School Performance Grade is a C. Our entire staff is dedicated to meeting student growth expectations set by the state and to re-establish our traditional overall grade of B! 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 at http://www.ncreportcards.org.
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.
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 extremely proud of our staff and students here at Fairview Elementary!
Kelly Thomas, Principal
