Canon Exploratory School


The Colorado Department of Education did not calculate School Performance Frameworks based on 2021 assessment results. In lieu of this, Cañon City Schools use its annual Instructional Program Review (IPR) process to measure Cañon Exploratory School's progress toward its vision of s Student Empowered Learning Framework. Instructional Program Reviews take place each school year from the end of February through the middle of March, with the goal of reporting results back to each staff and school co mmunity by the end of the school year. In preparation for a review, school leadership teams self-reflect on the agreed-upon rubric. The Compass Committee, composed of students, staff, parents, administrators, board members, and key community leaders, appoints a review team to visit each school. Site reviews take a full school day and include opportunities for staff and students to present information and artifacts, as well as opportunities to observe live instruction. Official results are reported to each staff and school community by the Superintendent of Schools after they are approved by the Compass Committee. Certified staff use their school's final rating as a collective measure on their personal evaluation. Cañon Exploratory School's final rating for 2021 was 79.26 % . The Compass Committee recognized Cañon Exploratory School's effort to align its practices to the district's vision, mission, core beliefs, and attainment of its graduate profile traits and skills. As a result of this review, the Cañon City Schools Compass Committee suggested the following areas of focus to further improve student learning outcomes: -The most important thing Cañon Exploratory School can do this year is to focus on an effective leadership transition. This year the TOSA-Principal Designee worked full-time with the outgoing principal. She has done good work learning how to lead the culture forward. We look forward to seeing her put her own signature on the building's future. -Continue efforts to support the staff's ability to formatively assess students on their accomplishment of student-centered learning targets and the development of district-adopted traits and skills. Analyze this data across subject areas for the purpose of deeper improvement of instruction. -We encourage the school to strive to become highly effective in the Instructional Program Review areas that measure its own culture. We understand these are aspirational goals. However, at some point, the school should move to highly effective in most of these areas measured. -In the 2021-22 school year Cañon Exploratory School will receive an additional $333 per student allocation, thanks to federal ESSER III funding. A preliminary proposal was submitted to the district in April 2021 to guide how these dollars will be invested to keep the doors to the school open, catch students up on learning opportunities lost as a result of the COVID pandemic, and drive innovative education opportunities forward in alignment with our district vision, mission, core beliefs, and adopted traits and skills. Please review the feedback the district has offered on your proposal and submit a revised plan for approval, then see to it that each initiative is successfully implemented for the benefit of improved student learning opportunities and outcomes. ?
