Bradford Elementary School students will enter middle school with the skills and knowledge needed to attain success without remediation. Our students will be able to communicate effectively through verbal and written expression. Our students will be able to analyze and evaluate text in a variety of genres. Our students will possess the skills, knowledge, and conceptual understanding to effectively problem solve in science and mathematics. Our students will understand the benefits and appropriate uses of technology while encompassing the ability to adapt to variation and change. The learning environment at Bradford Elementary School will promote fair and equal opportunities for all students.
We plan to bring all students proficiency and beyond by:
Continually promoting clear high standards for all students.
Using a curriculum framework that is based on performance standards.
Maintaining an aligned curriculum both vertically and horizontally.
Providing quality instructional facilities, materials, and supplies.
Utilizing formative and summative assessment data to drive instruction.
Developing appropriate and effective safety nets for students that require remediation.
Maintain highly qualified staff who are reflective of practice and desires continual renewal.

Tips to Help Your Child
Prepare for Tests Parents and families can do several things to create a positive test-taking experience and help students prepare for tests. Here are some ideas:
THE DAY OF THE TEST
• Make sure that your child is well rested and eats breakfast.
• See that your child arrives at school on time and is relaxed.
• Comfort counts. Send a sweater if it’s a cool day. Dress in layers for a warm day.
• Encourage your child to do the best work possible and to have a positive attitude.
• Encourage your child to listen/read carefully to all test-taking directions and to ask questions if any directions are unclear.
• Remind your child not to get stuck on any one item.
• Encourage your child to check answers for accuracy if time permits.
