Annual Student Stakeholder Survey – 2015
 
The link below is to the annual student survey.  In past years this survey was completed on paper, but this year we are using an online survey program. The survey can be accessed using a computer or a smart phone.  This survey is part of Tracy Unified School District’s efforts to make our schools the best place for students to learn.  The survey will be open until the end of the school year (May 29, 2015). Your honest opinion is appreciated.

 LCAP Survey
Tracy Unified School District is interested in gathering valuable feedback from all stakeholders on the design and implementation of the district’s priorities for the Local Control and Accountability Plan (LCAP).  To accomplish this, we are gathering community input.  Your participation is critical in this decision-making process and we appreciate your assistance by completing this survey.  The information provided will assist the district in allocating funds from the Local Control Funding Formula (LCFF) in ways which will best support student learning for all children and move the district towards closing the achievement gap for all at-risk students. 
 
The LCAP Stakeholder Survey is on the TUSD Public Website.  It is now located front and center of the front page- no hunting required!
 
All parent, staff and community members are encouraged to take the survey.
 
SARC Reports
All public schools are required to prepare and distribute a SARC (School Accountability Report Card). The purpose of the report card is to provide parents and the community with important information about each public school. A SARC can be an effective way for a school to report on its progress in achieving goals. The public may also use a SARC to evaluate and compare schools on a variety of indicators.  SARCs are prepared with information from the previous school year.  The 2013-14 SARCs can be obtained from the school website and district website at https://www.tracy.k12.ca.us/AboutTUSD/SitePages/SARC.aspx.   Paper copies will be made available, upon request.

Freiler Stars Attendance Banners
Please make sure your students come to school each day and on time. Consider this: A student who arrives to school late each day by 3 minutes misses over 500 minutes of instruction each year.  That is the equivalent of 9 hours of missed instruction.
Students cannot learn if they are not in school. Students with high rates of absenteeism have a harder time getting their work done and often end up scoring poorly on assessments. Please help our students get to school on time-  It does make a difference!
Each class has an attendance banner that is filled in each day when they have perfect attendance. When the banner is complete , students receive a recognition treat.
Parents please call the office whenever your student is absent at (209) 830-3309.
 
Common Core State Standards
The Common Core is changing the way we teach our students, and changing the types of work our students are doing. 
 
To find out more about the Common Core, visit the TUSD Common Core Information Page.
 
Another great common core website is www.commoncoreworks.org. This site has great resources for parents.

 PRINCIPAL'S MESSAGE

 

Dear Freiler Parents,

 This year has been a very active year with many students doing after school academic and extracurricular activities. Student learning and student well-being is a huge emphasis at Art Freiler School. Currently teachers and students are working hard in classrooms to learn the Content Standards for grades 3rd-8th to prepare for the upcoming Smarter Balance tests.
 
TESTING  IS  COMING!!!
Smarter Balance on-line testing will be from March 10th- May 29th. Each class will schedule a testing week. Please mark these dates on your calendar and I request that you not schedule any vacations during these dates. It is extremely important for students to be at school, be ready, and try their best on the tests. Our goal is to set a baseline to continue to meet our Academic Yearly Progress (AYP) goal of increase student achievement in both ELA and math and keep our Academic Performance Index (API) score at a high level, which was frozen at 831, with a three year average of 835. Results of standardized tests are also used to evaluate a school’s performance and they play a role in students’ advance classes in high school as well. So, it is important to all involved for every child to do well on tests. You can boost your child’s performance on standardized tests by:
1.      Having good attendance
Teachers cannot teach students who are not in school. There is strong evidence that regular attendance can result in significant test-score gains. Last month our attendance was 93.7% and our goal is 98% or higher each month. During testing time, our goal is 100% attendance and we cannot achieve this goal without parents’ help.
2.      Be mindful of the testing schedule
Make sure your child is in school every day.
Do not schedule medical appointments during school hours.
Do not take your child out of school for a family trip or activity.
Do not allow your child to be tardy. Have your child get ready the night before so he or she can get to school on time.
Please talk to your children about their classwork and homework. Please make sure they do their homework and turn it in to their teachers on time. Make sure they study for the tests.
 
Good practice makes it perfect. Please ask your child’s teacher what your child should be working on. Many classes are taking practice tests to get familiar with the testing procedures and content.  Sample tests are available online and you may ask your student to take practice tests from http://www.cde.ca.gov/ and http://www.smarterbalanced.org/
 
Lastly at Art Freiler School safety  is our first priority. In order to keep our campus safe at all times, we need to remind students to be nice to each other and follow the school procedures. We realize children make mistakes, we just hope that they learn from them and do not make them again. Our school rules are listed in our district discipline handbook and student agendas to help parents and students understand the school procedures, rules, and consequences.
 
Congratulations to all our Character Counts Awards & Honor Roll Students for the 2nd trimester!!!!!
 
 
Best regards,
Karen Alcorn, Principal
