New Salem Elementary School NC Report Card
Dear New Salem Parents,
The mission of our school is to, “Empower ALL students academically and socially to thrive in a changing world.” Our goal is to be a school whose identity rests in providing world class rigorous work and world class student leadership opportunities.
One of the many ways of measuring our success is through state standardized assessments. 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 provided 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.dpi.state.nc.us/src/. Our school district’s report also is available on the Report Card website.
Federal, 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 New Salem 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.
