Each year, the Board of Education and schools set goals that we would like to achieve. The goals that the Lincoln Park Elementary School set involve all LPES staff.
Goals for the 2019 - 2020 school year:
Goal 1: During the 2018 - 2019 school year, the iReady program was implemented at LPES. Throughout the year the Director of Curriculum and Instruction and I met with grade level teams to discuss the usage and scheduling of the program. Students were assessed at least three times during the year. This year, staff will review last year’s data to determine students’ current levels and will implement groupings and instruction accordingly. While students demonstrated various levels of growth during the last school year, we will continue to focus on increasing the students’ typical growth and strive for academic improvement from year to year.
Last year’s implementation of iReady resulted in 73% of students achieving typical growth. This year, by the students’ final benchmark assessments, at least 75% of the students will demonstrate typical growth in their mathematics iReady diagnostic.
Goal 2: In conjunction with the district goal on Mindfulness, LPES will strive to incorporate mindful practices in the classrooms. Teachers will be given opportunities to research and evaluate mindful activities, practice them during professional development days, and implement them in their classrooms. Each teacher will implement at least two mindful activities into some aspect of their classroom during the course of the 2019-2020 school year.
Our mission at LPES: The Lincoln Park Elementary School will inspire and empower its children with opportunities that positively shape their lives and help them to become successful, life-long learners who possess the critical thinking, academic, and leadership skills required for the 21st Century.
