Welcome to 2014-2015!
This is an exciting time in education as we continue our transition to the new Common Core Standards and embrace 21st century teaching and learning. Additionally, we are ready to implement our district plan to meet the needs of our students and improve academic achievement.
We have a new Mathematics curriculum this year, and are in our second year with a new curriculum for English Language Arts. Additionally, we have numerous technology upgrades to allow for digital teaching and learning in every classroom. We are beginning a 1:1 learning environment with chrome books for all 6th graders.
Last year we developed a robust plan to meet the needs of our students and improve academic achievement. This plan, known as the Local Control Accountability Plan (LCAP), is part of the new state funding model in California. This is our first year of implementing this plan, which has 10 goals with very specific actions that will be taken in 2014-2015.
A few highlights include a longer school year for students (3 week Learning Academy in June 2015), longer school day for primary grades, academic intervention during spring break, focused support for K-3rd literacy, PE for all students, and liaisons for every school. I encourage you to look at the summary of our LCAP for a detailed overview of what to expect in 2014-2015.
We remain committed to student health and well-being, as we know it supports student learning. We are offering the dental sealant program to all students, and we are beginning our on-site meal preparation program at Bellevue School including "Farm-to-Table" with local produce. Having students participate consistently in PE - starting in kindergarten - also reflects our commitment to health and well-being.
We look forward to working together in the Bellevue Community to educate 21st century citizens who contribute to our world and make it an even better place.
