Parents, students, and educators follow a common set of guidelines to make the school year run smoothly. Elementary schools in the Goshen Community Schools district share a standard school handbook. Policy items and contents range from student progress and conferences to the lost and found. The handbook also covers procedural information such as dropping off and picking up students.

School Improvement Plan

Every school, as part of the federal No Child Left Behind Act and Indiana’s Public Law 221, must have a school improvement plan. Each school has an improvement team comprised of staff, parents, and community members. These teams developed their initial building plan in 2001-02 and revise the plan as needed each year.

In order to bring consistency to the district’s elementary schools, a math committee aligns the curriculum with the Goshen Community School Corporation’s “Essential Learnings” and the state standards. The committee determined that every classroom will be using the Math Trailblazers curriculum. Our professional development will focus on the new math curriculum.
