New Salem Elementary School NC Report Card
Dear New Salem Parents,
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 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. School Report Cards are provided for regular public schools, charter schools and alternative schools that were open during the 2016/17 school year.
The numbers only tell part of the story. Our school purposes to be responsive to the needs of students and flexible and innovative in meeting student needs. This comprehensive team approach to meeting the needs of all students is allowing New Salem's team of educators to collaborate more effectively to benefit the students in our community. Under the umbrella of educating the "whole child", we offer opportunities, both during the school day and after, for children to engage in leadership, service, and other meaningful activities.
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 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.
Thank you for allowing me to share this Report Card with you and thank you for supporting our efforts to provide your child with a high-quality education.
