    School Renovation Details - 2014 The original "Green Street" school building was
    connected to the "old" Board of Education Building to create a large learning complex. The structure was completely renovated top to bottom, maintaining the
    historical look and integrity of the original structure. However, the building was brought into the 21st Century with enhanced technology and security.

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 (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

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

  • Beginning with adults, the use and practice of the Restorative philosophy and Kids at Hope language will be fully integrated into the daily practices at AES. All adults will view student misbehavior as an opportunity to re-teach correct behaviors. Students will take ownerships of their behavior and reflect upon the harm caused and what needs to be done to repair the harm. Further, we will have expanded our proactive approach to student behavior by fully implementing Second Step lessons and other social skills opportunities for students. As a result, discipline referrals and suspensions will decrease significantly by 2020. Even more importantly, the school culture will be improved.

    ------------------------------------

    Students will see that their behavior is a reflection upon themselves. They will see that misbehavior has no place in the school setting. They will see that misbehavior involves repairing the harm. Students will say that AES is a safe, caring learning environment.

    -------------------------------------

    Adult stakeholders will see that student behavior is handled quickly and appropriately in a restorative manner. They will see that students will be held accountable for their behavior. Adults will say that AES is a positive school environment that is nearly free from disruptive behavior safe for all stakeholders.

    In order to ensure that all students are reading at or above grade level by the end of second grade, it is vitally important that teachers have the capacity to grow and learn along with students. Therefore, it is important that a culture of literacy is implemented and embraced. For teachers, that means coaching. Just like world-class athletes, teachers require coaching to continue to improve in their craft of delivering high-quality literacy instructions. It is incumbent upon us to ensure that we provide coaching that meets the needs of individual teachers in the same way that we differentiate instruction for individual students. Teachers will meet with students on a daily basis in appropriately leveled guided reading groups. They will continuously monitor student progress and confer with Reading teachers (coaches) to receive guidance on moving students along the continuum of reading. For students, reading will be embraced as something we do daily at AES whether it is in groups or independently. Overall, a "Culture of Literacy" will be embraced by all students and teachers.

    --------------------------------------

    Students will see their own personal growth in reading, meeting with success along the way. Students will say they love reading and AES supports their reading growth.

    ---------------------------------------

    Adults will see that students are indeed meeting with success in reading. All (or nearly all) students will meet grade-level expectations. Adults will see the entire school community coming together to support students who are struggling. They will see celebrations for students who are growing. Adults will say that a "Culture of Literacy" is alive and well at AES. It is supported by all stakeholders.
