    School Renovation Details - Park Elementary was a complete renovation which resulted in a new building. The building was transformed from a two story building to all one floor. In 2018, Park Elementary received an early childhood wing that included six new classrooms. These classrooms are used for pre-k and kindergarten students.

Strategic Plan Indicators

  • After each school leadership team reflected on its school culture, community, and the key contributing factors to student growth, they used this information to select the Strategic Plan Indicators that would have the greatest positive impact for their students.  Each school was directed to select two to six indicators on which to focus during the 2018-19 school year.  Certainly, we all know that if we focus narrowly and deeply, we are more likely to realize positive results.  The indicators that this school’s leadership team selected are noted below.

  • Strategic Plan Indicator(s) Chosen by the School - 1, 5, 6, 10 (expand to view details)

    View Full List/Descriptions of Indicators

    Indicator 1. INCREASE THE PERCENTAGE OF STUDENTS, FAMILIES, STAFF, AND PARTNERS WHO REPORT FEELING LIKE A VALUABLE MEMBER OF THE SCHOOL OR SCHOOL SYSTEM COMMUNITY

    Indicator 5. INCREASE THE PERCENTAGE OF STUDENTS WHO READ ON OR ABOVE GRADE LEVEL BY THE END OF SECOND GRADE

    Indicator 6. INCREASE THE PERCENTAGE OF STUDENTS IN GRADES 3-8 WHO MEET OR EXCEED EXPECTATIONS ON STANDARDIZED READING, LANGUAGE ARTS, AND MATHEMATICS ASSESSMENTS

    Indicator 10.  INCREASE THE PERCENTAGE OF STUDENTS ATTENDING SCHOOL ON A DAILY BASIS

Strategic Journey

  • Throughout the next 3 years, schools will focus on their chosen Strategic Plan Indicators as the drivers to increase student engagement and achievement within their schools.  They will choose strategies to help them grow or increase within each indicator and will monitor and evaluate the student and school changes that take place along the journey.  Below you will see what this school imagines their students and school to look like in 2021 after having focused and worked on their chosen indicators for three years.

Our Vision of Success: 2021

  • As we progress through the second half of the 2018-19 school year,  we have laid the foundation for our work around Park Elementary’s Indicators.

    We have met with families to learn how we can better support them in sending their students to school regularly.  We continue to reach out to families early in the day when children have not arrived to school and have seen some improvement in children ultimately arriving to school, albeit, tardy. 

    Students will see a large collection of books in the school, teachers who are excited about the teaching of literacy, and a welcoming environment that includes a variety of seating opportunities for independent reading. Students will say that they love coming to school, they love reading, that they are having discussions about books, and they express confidence in themselves as readers.
