The Warrick County School Corporation is exploring the possibility of implementing a one to one computer solution for the students and staff. One to one or 1:1 is where each student has a device such as a laptop (Windows or Apple) or Chromebook for their use while at school and at home. Students would be able to access the Internet while at school for school related items. While the device is at home, a student would be able to utilize the device to complete homework assignments, do research, and many other educationally related activities.
This survey will answer some of these questions as we move forward in our research. Please answer the questions to the best of your ability.
Reminder: Student immunization records are required. Parents should submit student immunization records to the school or contact the school nurse to confirm pending immunization appointments.

American Student Achievement Institute
SCHOOL IMPROVEMENT COUNCIL
Dear Faculty, Parents, and Community:
Our school is participating this year in the School Improvement Institute (SI2). SI2 is sponsored by the American Student Achievement Institute, an Indiana non-profit organization that helps teachers, students, parents, and community members come together to discuss school improvement and develop a data-driven school improvement plan. As a participant in the Institute, we will be working through a data-driven improvement process called Vision-to-Action. SI2 also helps us to meet the school improvement planning requirements of Public Law 221 (Indiana’s school accountability law).
To engage the community in our discussions, we are creating a School Improvement Council consisting of teachers, parents and representatives of various stakeholder groups found in our community. The Council will help with decision making as we move through the Vision-to-Action process. We encourage every person concerned with our young people and committed to raising student achievement to participate in the Council.
JOIN THE COUNCIL: To join our school’s School Improvement Council, please do the following:
- Go to www.asainstitute.org/joincouncil
- Enter our school code: 8789
- Enter your contact information. Note: Please ensure that email coming from firstname.lastname@example.org will not be blocked by your organization’s security system.
COUNCIL ROLE: The School Improvement Council role will be to discuss topics related to school improvement including 1) the rationale for raising academic rigor, 2) vision for student success in our community, 3) measureable goals, 4) root causes (what interferes with meeting academic goals), and 5) interventions (how we will address the root causes). After each discussion, the School Improvement Steering Team (managers) will use the Council’s input to develop a related component in our School Improvement Plan. Each component will be presented to the Council for approval by consensus.
COUNCIL DISCUSSION: All Council discussions will happen online. We will provide a password protected web address where you will go to watch a video, review student group data (no individual student data), and then participate in an online discussion. You will be able to enter your thoughts and respond to the comments of other Council members. The discussions will occur in November (rationale for raising academic rigor), December (vision), January (goals), February (root causes), and March (interventions). Each month, you will get an email that provides the web address and the discussion open / close dates.
COUNCIL MAKE-UP: To make our discussions rich and our decisions sound, the School Improvement Council is a broad group consisting of teachers, parents, and community stakeholders who will bring many different perspectives to the table. Since our goal is to enable all students to succeed, this is very important.
STUDENT BODY INPUT: The entire student body will also take part in parallel discussions to that of the Council. Their input will be provided to the Council and will also be incorporated into the School Improvement Plan.
ADDITIONAL INFORMATION: You may call Joel Claycomb who is the member of our School Improvement Steering Team responsible for managing the Council’s work. You may reach him at email@example.com
