Program Review News
I want to take some time to provide you with information about this part of our state assessment system. Not only do our 3-5th grade students take the state written assessment (combining multiple choice and constructed responses) now called KPREP in May but we also complete reviews of our whole school's programs( all grade levels) including:
  • Arts/Humanities-dance, drama, music and art
  • Practical living/career studies-careers, health, physical fitness, consumerism
  • Writing
  • K-3 (primary program)
All certified staff help with these reviews. Each review has a rubric (scoring guide) which allows schools to rate themselves on each demonstrator (ratings from: limited/no implementation, needs improvement, proficient or distinguished). Then the committee looks through all the sub scores and agrees on our overall ratings in each of these four areas on each program review (using those same four rating categories). Each program review is broken into the following components:
  • Curriculum/instruction
  • Formative/summative assessments
  • Professional development and support services
  • Administrative/leadership support and monitoring
Currently all four committees are working hard to collect quality evidence to use to write our rationales for why we rated ourselves as we did. Hopefully this overview was helpful and I’ll be providing you with more specifics in April and May. We will be reviewing all of these at our April SBDM meeting so please come listen if you have a chance. These will all be figured into our school's accountability this year-totaling together to make up 23% of the score. If you have any additional questions, please call the school. I will be happy to speak to you. Thanks for the privilege of educating your child. Dana Blankenship Principal

Author and former NFL player visited Peaks Mill
We were so excited to have author and former Atlanta Falcons NFL player, Tim Green visit Peaks Mill on March 18th.  The students had a chance to meet him, have him autograph copies of his books, and listen to him talk about the importance of education, working hard, and character! He was a very inspirational and motivational speaker!!
