Dear Parents/Guardians,

Pursuant to the Education Accountability Act of 2009, all public schools in Colorado are required to develop unified improvement plans that outline targets for performance outcomes and strategies that the school will implement to achieve academic improvement. Schools may be required to implement a performance plan, improvement plan, priority improvement plan, or turnaround plan. Based on results from the Colorado School Performance Framework, Westview will be required to develop an Improvement plan during the 2019-20 school year. 

The school was assigned to this plan type based on performance not meeting state expectations in the area(s) of Academic Achievement and Academic Growth.

The district is required to submit Westview’s unified improvement plan to the Colorado Department of Education on or before April 14, 2020. To meet that deadline, the plan will be developed according to the following timeline: 

  • October 2019- Leadership and staff meet to determine next steps and share with community

  • November 2019- School Accountability Committee meets to clarify UIP

  • December 15, 2019- UIP submitted to Executive Director

Prior to adopting a plan, Adams 12 Five Star Schools Board of Education will hold a public hearing.  For more information, please contact Stephanie Frankenfeld at 720-972-5680.

Welcome back to another exciting school year.  I hope that your children will have an excellent year in school and in physical education.  We wanted to let you know that we will be hosting Field Day this Fall on Monday, October 7. Kindergarten through Second grade Field Day will be held from 8:30-10:30 and the Third-Fifth grade Field Day will be from 12:20-2:20.  More information will be sent as the date gets closer. Thank you for your ongoing support, it’s going to be a great year!

Free and Reduced Lunch Campaign 

                                                                                                      

This year Westview Elementary became a Title 1 School. How can we maintain our Title 1 Funds?

It is extremely important for you to apply for your child’s free and reduced lunch. Do you think that you might not qualify for free and reduced lunch? You can still apply and find out!

Losing Title 1 funds puts all children at educational risk, positions that help meet our students needs are put at risk, and also the extra funding to support the community.

Families must reapply for free and reduced-price school meals every year. Remember to apply online using the link below. If you need a paper copy application, please come in to our school.

Queridos Padres/Guardianes,

De acuerdo con la Ley de Responsabilidad Educativa de 2009, todas las escuelas públicas en Colorado están obligadas a desarrollar planes de mejora unificados que delineen metas para los resultados de desempeño y estrategias que la escuela implementará para lograr la mejora académica. Se puede requerir que las escuelas pongan en práctica un plan de rendimiento, plan de la mejora, plan de la mejora de prioridad o plan de la vuelta. Basado en resultados del Marco de Desempeño de la Escuela de Colorado, se requerirá que Westview desarrolle un plan de la Mejora durante el año escolar de 2019-20.

La escuela fue asignada a este tipo de plan basado en el desempeño que no cumple con las expectativas estatales en el área (s) de Logro Académico y Crecimiento Académico.

El distrito está obligado a presentar el plan de mejora unificada de Westview al Departamento de Educación de Colorado el 14 de abril de 2020 o antes. Para cumplir con ese plazo, el plan se desarrollará de acuerdo con el siguiente cronograma: 

 -Octubre 2019- Liderazgo y personal se reúnen para determinar los próximos pasos y         compartir con la comunidad

-nov2019- Comité de Responsabilidad Escolar se reúne para aclarar UIP

-15 de diciembre de 2019- UIP presentado al Director Ejecutivo

Antes de adoptar un plan, Adams 12 Five Star Schools Board of Education llevará acabo una audiencia pública. Para obtener más información, comuníquese con Stephanie Frankenfeld al 720-972-5680.
