The vision of the Bankston Elementary School Bobcats is to achieve an "A" accreditation rating and meet growth expectations. The teachers are using the Explicit Direct Instruction (EDI) strategies to assist with facilitating student learning to accomplish this vision. The students are using Ipads and chrome books to extend their use of technology to increase their future successes in meeting the global competition. Students are actively pursuing Accelerated Reader (AR) points by reading on-level and above books. Monthly STAR monitoring allows for reading levels to ensure student comprehension. The teachers and parents/guardians/stakeholders are communicating with the free app Remind. ELL students and their parents have found Imagine Learning as a tool to assist them in becoming proficient in the English language. Bankston's vision is being promoted by the helpful involvement of our PTO. There is only one unified plan to become an "A" rated school!
