  • Effective instruction makes the most difference in student academic performance.
  • There is no excuse for poor quality instruction.
  • With our help, at risk students will achieve at the same rate as non-at risk students.

Campus Action Plan

Key Actions

  2. Improve the quality of instruction by increasing rigor and student engagement.

  3. Allen Elementary will improve positive perception of school climate and culture by all stakeholders including students, staff, parents and community.

Building Blocks to Success!

We just closed our second six weeks of school. It is time now to analyze our assessments and look at the data. We have to remember that it takes courage to own our results and commitment to grow ourselves and each other. I know that each and every one of my teachers is dedicated to grow our students. We will use the data to inform our teaching. We will turn the results into reteaching. I have no doubt that we will meet or beat all of our goals this year, I believe in my teachers.

Proud to be an Eagle!

Spot Observation Tracker

Our Spot Observation Tracker indicates that we are meeting our goal of scoring 1.5 or higher in each indicator. Indicator 2.5: Engages students at all learning levels in rigorous work is our indicator with the lowest score. This indicator measures how the teacher uses more that one response and instructional strategy to engage the students. It also measures the level of rigor. As we continue with our book study of Teach Like a Champion and CLRS, I have no doubt that we will be able to surpass our goal.
