School Report Card

State and federal laws require public schools to release report cards to the public each year. This year, the report card has been updated to reflect changes in reporting directed by the SC Education Oversight Committee. Schools will not be rated for state accountability purposes until Fall 2018 when the state will transition to a single accountability system.

Spaulding Elementary School, a Title One and SC TAP school is committed to helping each student develop career and life skills by providing a safe, orderly, academically challenging learning environment with appropriate academic support for the success of all students. The school serves approximately 272 students in grades 3-5. Spaulding Elementary received a 21st Century Community Learning Center grant of $577,500 over a period of four years for the implementation of an afterschool program to further support student achievement.

Teachers increased their capacity through on-going applied professional development and also through advanced degrees, and studies. This included Reading to Succeed coursework. Instruction was driven by data analysis using Measures of Academic Progress Tests (MAP), CASE benchmark tests, and classroom assessments.

Students were involved in service learning projects such as Jump Rope for Heart, Pennies for Patients, Good Samaritan Food drive, etc. Various school/community activities were hosted throughout the year to promote an awareness and support of school goals and collaboration for attaining the established goals. Through grant funding, the school implemented the PAAWS (Pursuing Academic Achievement with STEAM) Learning Center Afterschool program. Serving 100 students, the program provided students with additional academic support as well as learning experiences in the areas of science, technology, engineering, arts and math.

Parents and community members collaborated and participated in a variety of events such as Family Reading Night, Father and Daughter and Mother and Son Banquets, Grandparent’s Day, etc. Dedicated teachers, parents, and community members will continue to strive to build leaders one mind at a time.
