By promoting a safe and positive school climate and culture, investing heavily in professional development for teachers and staff, empowering and engaging our students and teachers, holding stakeholders accountable for student achievement and growth (monthly data meetings, communication, enrichment and intervention), providing immediate feedback to students on the Performance Series test and other assessments, utilizing all available resources, encouraging flexible seating for students, and recognizing student success have all played a role in Straughn Elementary’s success.
