Ready Schools

Ready Schools is our commitment and our plan to ensure success for our students post-graduation and to ensure economic prosperity for our community.

We want our students to leave Edgewood with advantages and experiences and a plan for post-graduation success. We want them to understand the relevance of their learning. We want employers and community leaders to covet partnerships with our teachers and students for the value we can bring to our entire community. At Edgewood we understand and embrace our responsibility to ensure economic prosperity for our community by providing skilled workers and leaders, who can be retained within our regional workforce, and who will also feel empowered to contribute to our local economy. 

We know all students aren’t on the same path for after graduation, so our Ready Schools program meets every student where they are at. Whether they are going on to college, the military, an apprenticeship, or job, we want to give every student the chance to find their passion and create a plan they are confident in to purse. We are doing this by diversifying our learning experiences to give every student knowledge of the real world, so they are confident to follow whatever plan they are passionate about. 

At Edgewood, our Ready Schools Initiative starts in preschool. Some of the ways we implement our Ready Schools Initiative is through the following programs: STEAM(Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, Math), Project Based Learning, Project Lead the Way Curriculum, the Innovative Learning Center, Internships, Career Exploration, Industry Partnerships, the Coffee Corral, the Design Lab, EdgeMedia, and the Makerspace.

Student Services

We use our Student Services to advocate for our students and their needs. We believe it is important to focus on each child as a whole and support them in all of their needs. The following programs are part of the Students Services we provide.

 

Social-Emotional Learning

Social and emotional learning (SEL) is a key element to our students’ success not only as a prepared workforce but as well-rounded, resilient members of our community. It is for this reason that we are committed to providing every teacher with the professional learning they need to support their students emotionally as much as academically.

Social/Emotional Learning (SEL) competencies involve the processes through which students acquire and effectively apply the knowledge, attitudes, and skills necessary to understand and manage emotions, set and achieve positive goals, establish and maintain positive relationships, and make responsible decisions (Durlak, Weissberg, Dymnicki, Taylor, & Schellinger, 2011)

SEL is not politically or religiously affiliated and is not critical race theory. Per IC 20-19-5, IDOE SEL is required by law in the State of Indiana.

Title 1

Title 1 is a Federally Funded Program that provides financial assistance to local educational agencies (LEAs) and schools with high numbers or high percentages of children from low-income families to help ensure that all children meet challenging state academic standards.

The mission of Title I is to provide a continuum of services and resources to Title I districts and charter schools that enrich curriculum and instruction, promote interaction and coordination of supplementary services and resources, and result in excellence and high expectations for educators and students.

C.L.A.S.S.

CONNECTING LEARNING ASSURES SUCCESSFUL STUDENTS (C.L.A.S.S.)
Creating successful schools through the blending of brain research, character education, and collaboration strategies.

What is C.L.A.S.S.?
C.L.A.S.S. is an organization driven by creativity and innovation. Led by a faculty of extraordinary educators, C.L.A.S.S. transforms research-based ideas into exceptional educational services and materials to aid in preparing future generations for their world.
