Atwater Elementary School District

During this second year with Atwater, we continued to refine the 12 basic “bread and  butter” strategies of Strategic Schooling, while also launching a district-wide writing campaign.  Each district-wide grade level team met with Charlotte 3 times over the course of the year to

  • Analyze results from the previous trimester
  • Plan forward for writing instruction focusing on the gradual release model of instruction
  • Develop projects for informational writing taken to publication for all students

Five of the seven schools are now over the state goal of 800 on the API
The district-wide API is now over 800 as well. This is the only district in the county of more than a few hundred students with an 800+ API.
