SCHOOL VISION AND REALITY
At Cadman Elementary, we work collaboratively to provide each student a diverse education in a safe environment promotes self-discipline, motivation, and excellence in learning. Our mission is to work as a strong partnership of staff, parents and community members to create opportunities that promote high academic achievement and social competence, wherein students become confident and successful members of our global society. Cadman continues to provide a well-rounded educational opportunity for all scholars. Teachers often have combination classes or have a single class for each of our upper grades. This provides many opportunities for teachers to collaborate, vertically and horizontally team, and share instructional resources to maximize student achievement. When reviewing data to plan for the goals, it is important to recognize that many of the student groups are very small when you separate them into grade levels, which then impacts the ability to create data trends. In order to show growth, the district's projected allocations for the 2018-19 school year were used and then the 2017 SBAC achievement scores were utilized to create growth targets.
