School District Elementary School Middle High School Staff Only

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.
They are:

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
