How does C.E. Rose Succeed?
Our logo and Mission is LEAP 90.

Lead. Empower. Apply. Prepare.

We expect at least 90% of our students to Meet or Exceed State Standards on the AZ Merit.

Competence + Character = Effectiveness

All students are held by their teachers and staff to high standards. This starts with a school-wide mindset that all students can and will succeed with the proper support.
Eliminate the achievement gap and engender a powerful vision of their own future.
As a former Reading First school, we know the importance of focusing on Math and Literacy skills. We have 90+ minute reading blocks and 60 minutes or more a day of math. The Middle School students spend much longer on these subjects. Sometimes a math objective can take all morning. Most importantly, our entire staff is onboard with the same paradigm that 90% of students will Meet or Exceed the Standards.

Teachers focus on the principles of effectiveness: (1) conduct needs assessments, (2) set measurable objectives, (3) choose research-based programs and (4) evaluate progress towards objectives. Our teachers participate in interdependent grade-level lesson planning. Staff meet regularly to review data, identify the students' needs, and implement interventions.

All PreK-2 students use Pearson's Waterford program daily. Second through 8th grade students use the SuccessMaker program daily. These computer programs are fun, engaging, and based on State Standards. Our school was one of the lighthouse schools in TUSD. Our success led to a district-wide initiative to bring SuccessMaker to all TUSD Students. The Pearson article (in PDF)
Student Goals
Number one is that students are the leaders of their own learning. When students are empowered in a classroom, they know they are in charge of their own learning.

Additionally, our students are taught with the values of 21st Century learners. There are three constants in life: Change, Choice, and Principles.

Key Strategies
Student Data Notebooks - all students (K-8) have their own binders that are maintained by the students themselves. Students lead the discussion during Student/Parent/Teacher conferences because the students have the tools and knowledge to discuss their own progress. Our students welcome the opportunity to share their notebooks with visitors.

Strategic and Intensive Reading Interventions - Students, Staff, and Teachers meet regularly to review data provided from Dibels Progress Monitoring, SuccessMaker, Waterford, Imagine Learning, AVENUES Assessments, and ATI scores. We then implement research-based strategies to target student needs.

Focus - Time on task and effective lessons. All teachers use the Essential Elements of Instruction (EEI) model. You can see the posters in their classrooms. Our school-wide leadership model is The Leader In Me program. In addition to effective lessons, The Leader In Me program drastically reduced office referrals and empowered the students to do their best even when no one is watching. Focused learning comes when we can spend less time on behavior and more time on learning.

Focus - Results Oriented Interdependent Learning Groups. Teachers, Staff, and Students are an interdependent team. Interdependence means 2 or more people are dependent upon each other. Students work in cooperative groups with their peers and have data meetings with their teachers. Teachers lesson plan, discuss strategies and have data meetings with their grade level team. Paraprofessionals discuss intervention progress with grade level teams. Administration reviews data and student progress with teachers and paraprofessionals.

Focus - Problem-Solving. According to Kamehameha Schools Research & Evaluation Division, in the context of 21st Century Skills, "Schools must be transformed in ways that will enable students to acquire the creative thinking, flexible problem solving, collaboration and innovative skills they will need to be successful in work and life."

Before we begin anything new, we always ask ourselves: "How does this new element fit in with our vision of LEAP 90?" When the school vision and mission are clear, we attract great teachers, teachers want to work together, and the students succeed.
