Woodland Park Looks to Push PAWS Scores Even Higher

Woodland Park Elementary principal Jack Brimhall gave the Sheridan County School District No. 2 Board of Trustees goals for the upcoming year and presented PAWS scores for the past year during elementary school updates for District 2 on Monday.

Woodland Park's PAWS scores from last year were in the 90th percentiles, proficient or advanced in several areas, and were 100 percent proficient or advanced in 4th grade reading and in 5th grade writing. Brimhall said a goal for next year will to take those scores even higher and to have grades 3 through 5 above 95 percent on PAWS writing.

He added that another goal for Woodland Park will be to reduce the number of students sent to the Volunteers of America's ACE Suspension Program by five percent.

He added that this comes through increased adherence to the Positive Behavioral Interventions and Supports model. Brimhall explained to the board how this can be seen through everyday activities at school.

Woodland Park also has the goal of working in Professional Learning Community Intervention and Enrichment groups daily.

That will involve keeping up with Common Core State Standards, Brimhall said, and the overall focus of the goal for the school will be not just on teaching, but on making sure students are learning.
