PES School Improvement Team
The PES School Improvement Team, familiarly known as SIT, is a group of community members, faculty, staff, administration, as well as regional government officials that have come together to formulate a long term plan for success for the Pittsfield Elementary School. The SIT is using a Logic Model as its template. The Logic Model is the name given to the long-term plan and is centered around five focus areas that can be tied to the District’s Vision and Mission statements.
Ensuring student ownership of learning
Raising student academic achievement
Ensuring 21st century learning/ civic responsibility/social emotional socials (skills to insure success for future)
Redefining adult roles and performance expectations
Engaging with the community
The PES Logic Model will ensure the plan is organized in a fashion that is understandable and representative of its stakeholders. The SIT is currently comprised of four sub-teams: Best Practices, Communication, Data, and Performance Management. These teams are also made up of community members, faculty, staff, and administrators. Each sub-team meets outside of the SIT meetings (at the convenience of its membership) to accomplish tasks for inclusion in the logic model final draft. As co-chair of the communication team with Tara Ash, we anticipate regular communications to keep our school community informed. The next meeting of the SIT is scheduled for May 27, at 6:00 p.m.. A light dinner is offered at 5:30. All are welcome to come and participate. People seeking more information or to join the work of the PES SIT may email me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
