Pioneer Needs Assessment

This year Pioneer conducted a “needs assessment” with several groups of people (our students in 4th and 6th grade, our staff and community/parent groups). Below is a summary of what we found from their input. This input will drive our school plan and our school budget priorities.

 

Common Themes from Parents and Community Group:

  1. We would like inviting classrooms
  2. Small class size
  3. EL support so we can communicate with school
  4. Counseling available to students who may need to talk to someone

Common Themes from our Staff

  1. 1:1 technology for K-1 classrooms. Right now we share
  2. More computers and projectors to replace ones that may break throughout year
  3. Playground equipment
  4. Book room supplies and magazine subscriptions for kids
  5. Computer based interventions
  6. Keep our reading intervention teacher

Common Themes from our Students

  1. More computer based intervention programs
  2. Keep our reading teacher
  3. Playground equipment

Summer Reading Tips for Parents

 

1. Read aloud together with your child every day.

Make it fun by reading outdoors on the front steps, patio, at the beach or park. Also, let your children read to you. For younger children, point out the relationship between words and sounds.

 

2. Set a good example!

Parents must be willing to model behavior for their children. Keep lots of reading material around the house. Turn off the TV and have each person read his or her book, including mom and dad.

 

3. Read the same book your child is reading and discuss it.

This is the way to develop habits of the mind and build capacity for thought and insight.

 

4. Let kids choose what they want to read, and don't turn your nose up at popular fiction.

It will only discourage the reading habit.

 

5. Buy books on tape, especially for a child with a learning disability.

Listen to them in the car, or turn off the TV and have the family listen to them together.

 

6. Take your children to the library regularly.

Most libraries sponsor summer reading clubs with easy-to-reach goals for preschool and school-age children. Check the library calendar for special summer reading activities and events. Libraries also provide age appropriate lists for summer reading.

 

7. Subscribe, in your child's name, to magazines like Sports Illustrated for Kids, Highlights for Children, or National Geographic World.

Encourage older children to read the newspaper and current events magazine, to keep up the reading habit over the summer and develop vocabulary. Ask them what they think about what they've read, and listen to what they say.

 

8. Ease disappointment over summer separation from a favorite school friend by encouraging them to become pen pals.

Present both children with postcards or envelopes that are already addressed and stamped. If both children have access to the Internet, email is another option.

 

9. Make trips a way to encourage reading by reading aloud traffic signs, billboards, notices.

Show your children how to read a map, and once you are on the road, let them take turns being the navigator.

 

10. Encourage children to keep a summer scrapbook.

Tape in souvenirs of your family's summer activities picture postcards, ticket stubs, photos. Have your children write the captions and read them and read them aloud as you look at the book together.

We’re extremely proud of our students and staff and what they accomplish every day in the classroom. We’re also proud of the academic opportunities we provide to all students. However, our Twin Rivers neighborhood schools need basic health and safety improvements. Many of them are 50 to 80 years old with deteriorating classrooms, plumbing, leaky roofs, potentially faulty electrical systems, and aging restrooms that need to be repaired.

 

Let us know what your priorities are for local schools by completing the following Parent/Community Survey. Your views are important to us.

With the passage of Senate Bill 172, many students who were unable to pass the California High School Exit Exam (CAHSEE) can now receive their diploma.

 

As far back as 2006, when the exit exam became a requirement for graduation, students who didn’t pass the CAHSEE were not able to graduate and receive their diploma. SB 172 changes that. Any former student who completed grade twelve in the 2003-04 school year—or a subsequent school year—and met all applicable graduation requirements other than the passage of the CAHSEE may contact their high school office and fill out a request for records review.

 

Once the graduation status is verified, the records office will mail out the diploma to the individual’s current mailing address.
