Goal 3: Create a Welcoming Learning Environment

Goal 3, which focuses on creating a welcoming and safe learning environment, will continue to be a significant focus in Mesa Union School District’s LCAP. As a result of the analysis of the Olweus Bullying Program, the District has determined that the K-5 program had demonstrated improvements in school culture and the decrease of reported bullying incidents. For the 2017-2018 school year, a Middle School Task Force will be established to evaluate and make recommendations to the superintendent regarding school climate. Associated costs resulted in the administration of the Olweus Bullying School Climate Survey to students in grades 4-8. In addition, the District will contract with YouthTruth to assist the newly established 6-8 Task Force to evaluate the middle school climate and develop meaningful action steps.

What are we doing well

Teachers

All the teachers my child have are great. Recruiting and teacher retention is working well.

Areas we need to grow

Dual Immersion Program

Has Mesa explored a dual language program? Or at least offering Spanish classes?
