Why Fine Arts?

-The arts reach students not normally reached, in ways and methods not normally used; this leads to better student attendance and lower dropout rates.
-It changes the learning environment to one of discovery; this often reignites the love of learning in students tired of just being fed facts.
-Students connect with each other better; this often results in fewer fights, greater understanding of diversity, and greater peer support.
-The arts provide challenges to students of all levels; each student can find their own level from basic to gifted.
-Students learn to become sustained, self-directed learners; the student does not just become an outlet for stored facts from direct instruction, but seeks to extend instruction to higher levels of proficiency听
The student of the fine arts positively impacts the learning of students of lower socioeconomic status as much or more than those of a higher socioeconomic status

Parent, Family and Community Engagement includes several different forms of participation in education and working with our schools. Parents can support their children鈥檚 schooling by attending school functions and responding to school obligations (parent-teacher conferences, for example). Parents can become more involved in helping their children improve their schoolwork by providing encouragement, arranging for appropriate study time and space, modeling desired behavior (such as reading for pleasure), monitoring homework, and actively tutoring their children at home.

Outside the home, parents can serve as advocates for the school. They can volunteer to help out with school activities or work in the classroom. Or they can take an active role in the governance and decision making necessary for planning, developing, and providing an education for the community鈥檚 children. Parents are a child鈥檚 first teacher.

How to Establish a PTO

Presentation for Staff Development

The 皇家华人 designed the Innovation Network to improve historically low-performing schools by accelerating progress and implementing evidence-based transformational strategies.

The 13 schools now under this umbrella will experience a more comprehensive plan for innovative school design through autonomous governance, accountability for all, professional development for all educators, a robust approach to teaching and learning, and a collective vision focused on preparing students for opportunities beyond their high school years.

Many factors come into play when we examine why a school is chronically low-performing; educator instructional capacity gaps, student mobility, socio-economic circumstances, high student and educator absenteeism, lack of human and school resources, etc. It is the goal of our school system to address each of these elements head-on in order to provide a high-quality and equitable education for all students. However, the most important unit of change we can impact is daily classroom instruction.

To ensure school-based accountability and sustainability of this transformational work, the district established a Community Advisory Panel (CAP).听The CAP engages leading members of the local community and permit a specialized focus on these schools.

The goal is to have each Innovation Network school achieve, at a minimum, a School Performance Score (SPS) growth of four SPS points and grow in line with the 75th听percentile growth of all Louisiana schools of the equivalent level and grade annually.

The Innovation Network听creates opportunity and constructs for听all 13 schools听to use increased autonomy to find individualized paths to excellence, commit to high-quality curriculum implementation, and a resolve to hold all adults accountable for improved student results.听听 The Innovation Network听school leaders will engage听in听comprehensive and student-driven听professional development with a focus on data-driven strategies to turn around school performance. Through the implementation of high-quality curriculum, leadership development, instructional coaching, and stakeholder engagement, The 皇家华人听expects听to see a complete metamorphosis of the historically low-performing schools.
