ROI: Ready Schools Grant

When you hear “Ready Schools” the question becomes, “Ready for what?” The point of the Ready Schools Grant is to help Bloomfield School District focus their efforts on 6 core principles that will ultimately prepare our students to be READY for life and success after graduation.  

1. Every student is engaged in a relevant path to success.

2. Students graduate high school ready for post-secondary and career success.

3. Meaningful and ongoing collaboration occurs among schools, industry, and community.

4. Teaching and learning are grounded in relevancy.

5. K-12 schools are aligned around a common vision of student success.

6. Schools embrace the significant role they play in achieving regional prosperity.

Currently, we are in the “Discovery Phase,” of the process.  Our teams are looking at data, questioning current and past practices, and preparing to begin meeting with stakeholders in our community.  In those meetings we will be discovering how different groups view educational success. Then based on that information, our team will work to develop a plan to meet the needs of our students and stakeholders.  

How can you get involved?  Take part in a stakeholder meeting.  The meetings will be announced through school social media beginning in late September.  You may also contact me, Jenny Medina, directly to schedule a meeting. I'm serving as our District Readiness Coordinator. My email is jmedina@bsd.k12.in.us, and my phone number is 812-381-9705.

  Our team has been very busy interviewing students, school personnel, community members, and parents over the last month.  We have conducted 175 individual interviews, along with hundreds of mini interviews at the Apple Festival.  Thank you so much for giving us your time and commitment to help us work to improve our school.  Currently we are working to analyze the interviews.  We are looking for commonalities among stakeholder, we are working to figure out what was being said, and we are looking for the items we need to act upon first.  In the next couple of weeks you will have opportunities to see the information we have gathered, and offer your feedback.  Did we hear you correctly?  What's missing from our information? Those are the questions we will be asking you- and this is no time to be shy!  Please be on the watch for a public meeting near you.
