RE: Columbia Elementary Board Report

  • 2020-2021 School Year:
    • It's hard to believe the 2020-2021 school year is coming to an end. Some of the upcoming additions/changes for the 2021-2022 school year are…
      1. Intervention for ALL students: (Spanish and English)
      2. Common planning periods: All grades K-4
      3. Daily Adaptive Specialist Classes: (PE, Library, Leadership, Music) for our intensive special education students
      4. K-4 Leadership class: (Replacing Art due to Madison Frasier's resignation)
      5. Daily Small Group Instruction Time: All grades K-4

  • 2020-2021 Summative Academic Growth:
    • One of the K-4 progress monitoring tools that we utilize at WPS is an assessment called Acadience. Columbia gave Acadience to our K-4 students three times during the 2020-2021 school year. We gave the assessment in the Fall, Winter and Spring. We as a school still have work to do, but academically, as a school, we are headed in the right direction.
