Jesse S. Bobo Elementary
Message from the Principal
I would like to welcome everyone back to a new school year at Jesse S. Bobo Elementary School. We have exciting learning opportunities for your students this year, and we will continue to provide for them academically and socially. A great education is something that you can never take away from a child. That is exactly what we intend to give your children -- a great education as we prepare them for college and career readiness. My goal as the principal of the school is to prepare your child to be the best readers, writers, communicators, and problem solvers that they can be.
Jesse S. Bobo Elementary believes that open communication from school and home is a key component for educational success. Our Parent/Student Handbook, Parent Involvement Policy, District 6 Title I brochure, and school brochure is designated to facilitate communication and serve as a reference sheet to provide information to families.
We welcome your support and feedback throughout the school year. Please join us for Parent Teacher Organization and School Improvement Council meetings. By working together, we can help each student meet their true potential. We look forward to working with you this year and celebrating our students’ achievements!
Our Mission, Vision, and Beliefs
The MISSION of Jesse S. Bobo Elementary School is to provide a positive atmosphere, a challenging curriculum, and engaging learning for all students.
We ENVISION a school where students, parents, faculty, staff and community work together to provide challenging and engaging instruction and a positive school climate which results in 100% of students graduating college and career ready.
- PBIS improves school climate and student achievement.
- in providing engaging and relevant instruction.
- student achievement increases when faculty and staff work in close partnership with families.
- That our students, faculty, and staff should consistently demonstrate extraordinary talent.
Purpose of Title I
The purpose of Title I is to ensure that all children have a fair, equal, and significant opportunity to obtain a high-quality education and reach, at minimum, proficiency on challenging state academic achievement standards and state academic assessments.
Components of a School-wide Program
- A comprehensive needs assessment of the entire school is conducted.
- A comprehensive school-wide plan is created. This plan determines the best steps to improve academic achievement throughout the school, but especially for the lowest achieving students. The plan must address the need already identified.
- The school-wide plan must be evaluated annually, taking a look at student data, to determine its effectiveness. The plan is revised annually to ensure constant improvement.
Title I Participation
Jesse S. Bobo Elementary School continually monitors the implementation of the Title I plan and welcomes input from parents, school staff, and community members regarding its current and future Title I plans. If you would like to participate in the district and/or the school’s Title I planning team or make comments on the plan, please contact Principal Pogue at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Parental Engagement and Involvement
Parental involvement is an integral part of the Title I program. Parents are encouraged to become partners in helping their children achieve, and become actively involved in all aspects of the process of the Title I program, from the writing of the plan to its implementation and evaluation.
Parent Involvement Policy
Each Title I school is required to ask for input from parents regarding the development of a parent involvement policy and a school-parent compact. The parent involvement policy explains how the school/district plans to work with parents to review and improve parent programs and describes how parents can participate in planning these programs. You are asked to read the parent involvement policy which is located in our student handbook/calendar that we distribute at the beginning of the year. Based on your suggestions or comments, we will make changes as necessary.
The District 6 school-parent compact outlines how parents, staff, principal and students will share the responsibility for improved student academic achievement and the way in which the school and parents will build and develop a strong partnership to help children achieve the highest state standards. This document will be distributed at the beginning of each school year.
