Mission Statement for Schools of Chester, Deep River, Essex and Region 4

We, the communities of Chester, Deep River, Essex and Region 4, engage all students in a rigorous and collaborative educational program.  We prepare our learners to be respectful citizens who are empowered to contribute in a globalized society.


District Strategies for 2017-2020

All schools and staff will be dedicated to pursuing and implementing the strategies that the strategic planning team identified as the most crucial to the improvement of student success in our priority identified skills.  They are:

  1. Operationalize a three community, unified focus – Pre-K to 12 – on critical and creative thinking for solving difficult problems and to focus and align the districts’ goal setting processes with these priorities across towns, building and grades.


  1. Clarify/unify the assessment philosophy of the districts and comprehensively audit the use of assessment resources to ensure they are consistently applied throughout the districts and then build/use the assessment capacity of the districts to enable reliable assessment and date reporting of student proficiency in the priority skills (3 Year Process)


  • Data collection across the districts

  • Assessment Audit

  • Assessment Philosophy


  1. Support teachers in the enhancement of their capacity (professional learning, development, support and feedback) to teach and assess higher order thinking skills (critical and creative problem-solving) in a digital learning environment. - (Educator Evaluation Rubric 3B and 3C)

Arrival Procedures for November 19th and 20th

  • In the morning, both buses and cars will come through our main bus drop-off loop.  We will have additional staff on hand to assist with parents dropping off by car these mornings. We ask for your patience as buses will take longer than cars to unload.  Law enforcement will also be on hand to assist with traffic flow.  Parents are encouraged to have their students utilize school bus transportation on this mornings to help reduce the amount of cars coming into the bus drop-off loop.

 

Dismissal Procedures for November 19th and 20th

  • At the end of the school day, all afternoon dismissal procedures will take place from our main entrance door. Parents should continue to park where they normally have at dismissal time and wait outside the main entrance door for our parent-pick-up procedure. All student walkers will be released first. We will then begin our process for students in on our parent pick-up line.  Students will then be loaded on to our buses to complete our dismissal procedure.

 

We appreciate your understanding and patience during our arrival and dismissal procedures on these two days.  We will resume our normal arrival and dismissal starting the morning one Monday, November 26th.

 

Please feel free to contact our front office with any questions regarding these procedures at 860-525-5319.
