Sandy Grade School is a Title I building. This means that we receive federal dollars to support and provide high-quality curriculum and instruction in a supportive and effective learning environment that enables the participating children to meet the State’s student academic achievement standards. In addition, Sandy Grade School is required to have an active School Improvement Plan (SIP), Parent Involvement Plan (PIP) and an Achievement Compact. Click HERE for our Title I letter to parents.
- School Improvement Plan
Indicators SGS will be focusing on for these for a five year school improvement cycle, running from 2014-2015 through 2019-2020.
The SIP is a plan that defines a school’s targeted work for the year to raise achievement for all of its students. It is aimed at measurable goals, and it is monitored throughout the year. It must define how the school will work on meeting specific, research-based expectations in five areas: effective school-based leadership, student achievement, high-quality instructional practice, high-quality professional learning, and family/community involvement.
- Parent Involvement Plan
We know that parent involvement in our school can have a dramatic effect on the academic achievement of our students. This plan is developed with the goal of developing a strong partnership with all of our parents so that our children will be provided with the best possible education we can offer. So that parents will better understand our school’s program and how they may become actively involved, we have addressed key areas of concern. Please feel free to discuss any questions, comments, or suggestions you may have about this plan with your child’s teacher or the school principal. We welcome your input and suggestions.
- Achievement Compact
The Achievement Compact outlines how the parents, the entire school staff, and the students of Sandy Grade School will share the responsibility for improved student academic achievement and the means by which the school and parents will build and develop a partnership that will help children achieve the State’s high standards.
