This presentation, shared at the March 24, 2014, School Board meeting reflects the mid-year elementary student data, in particular the first part of the presentation displays how the students who were redistricted are performing using the various district assessments. One of the Board's goals is to eliminate the achievement gap and this presentation reflects the data that shows that we are well on our way to achieving that goal. Our elementary program is both rigorous and comprehensive in scope and sequence and designed to meet the needs of our diverse learners here in Wissahickon.
At the March 24th school board meeting, the board was presented with a proposed calendar for the 2014-15 school year.

This calendar is available for public review and comment, and will be recommended to the board for approval at the April 28th meeting.
