High Expectations for All Students

Responding Effectively to Individual Needs

Providing a Safe, Healthy Environment

We make contact with families to ensure they are aware of school events prior to it happening. We increase parent involvement through environmental changes and parent events. We have created organized spaces for community members to communicate and connect with one another. We demonstrate and express the value of learning by holding math, language arts, science, and art nights.

All students show appropriate growth within the school year. Escalante Elementary annually increases proficiency in reading by 3% mid-year and 7% at year-end.

 

We know our students and what they can do. Planning is based upon academic data and supports social, emotional, and physical health. All teaching methods, learning approaches, differentiated instruction, feedback, and intervention groups are based on achievable goals.

 

Escalante has built a strong community by breaking down barriers with all stakeholders. We have increased restorative and trauma informed practices, while decreasing punitive measures. We utilize measures to support pro-social behaviors, regular attendance, and correct unwanted behaviors.
