Mission,Vision, and Priority Focus Statement
PS 181Q's Mission Statement
As a collaborative school community of educators and parents, we are committed to a high quality of instruction, where the expectation for all students is to achieve high standards of academic excellence.
Administrators and staff, working with the support of the School Leadership Team and parents, will provide students with standards-based classroom instruction, individualized student assessment and the necessary support services to attain success.
We are committed to reflecting upon and refining our practice in order to strengthen the integration of the citywide instructional expectations to prepare all students, including students with disabilities, English Language Learners to graduate college. We will use a common language and build a shared understanding of high quality instruction.
The physical, intellectual, emotional and social growth of all students including English Language learners, Special Education students within the New York Continuum, gifted and talented, and pupils in need of Academic Intervention Services will be discussed and assessed at Parent Teacher Conferences, staff conferences, PTA meetings, and school leadership committee meetings.
Priority Focus Statement
To build teacher capacity, we will engage in targeted professional learning in explicit instruction, adjusting small groups based on data, and providing corrective feedback to students. This differentiated support will increase students’ ability to master the standards in ELA and Math.
