The mission of PS/MS 47Q, The Chris Galas School, is to work collaboratively with other educators, parents, and the Broad Channel Community to foster a safe and nurturing environment that meets the needs of ALL students. We will work together to teach students to take ownership of their own learning through the use of student led activities and productive struggle.
The vision of PS/MS 47Q, The Chris Galas School, is to create students who are prepared to be independent, productive members of an increasingly diverse, globalized, and complex world.
We will norm assessment practices to obtain accurate data about academic abilities of our students in order to appropriately and effectively plan to close the achievement gap.
Our focus is on building the capacity of teachers with opportunities and support in the administration of assessments along with the analysis of data to work toward targeted instruction which will help in closing the achievement gap of our students, specifically those with IEPs. We will accomplish this through monthly grade conferences as well as professional learning opportunities.
