We continue to work on our strategic planning goals of student achievement, professional de- velopment, communication and facilities upgrades. The Board of Education will be working with the new superintendent to review and revise these goals as we continue to provide students and families with a safe environment in which mutual respect and kindness are highly regarded.This data helps our staff to support stu- dents and their educational achievement needs. Since the work of our strategic planning group, we have implemented a K-5 report card system that will pro- vide the parent greater knowledge in the academic achievement of their students. These standards based report cards are also organized in a manner that allows parents to understand what areas they can influence with at home activities. At all levels, academic achievement initia- tives have focused on differentiation and providing education for all students. An example of this is a redesign of math ma- terials, training and structures in grades K-12. By making a variety of resources available to staff, they are able to provide for the needs of each student.AchievementCommitmentInnovationEXPECTING EXCELLENCEPENNFIELD SCHOOLS“Where Panther Pride MakesA Difference”Interested in Employment at Pennfield Schools or call 269-961-97818587 PENNFIELD ROAD, BATTLE CREEK, MI 49017Life-long LearningSCHOOL STARTS AUGUST 21, 2019!20 SCENE 4403 I EDUCATION ISSUELLAROFSEITINUTROPPOGNIDISTUDVENTSTOORERACHPTHEIRPOTENTIAL
