MINNIEVILLE RECEIVES TIPA FOR THE FOURTH STRAIGHT YEAR!
I am proud to announce that for the fourth year, Minnieville E.S. and our instructional staff are among the recipients of Prince William County Public Schools' Teacher Incentive Performance Award (TIPA) for having demonstrated student growth and achievement, quality teaching, and the school environment needed to help children make major educational strides.
TIPA does not mean we hit a specific target on one test or measurement. Instead, the award shows we are doing well across 23 different criteria that combine to show our ability to produce academic progress for our students. It means we are well positioned to help every child make big educational gains, even if he or she started out far behind their peers.
For the past four years, the TIPA project made certain we offered a climate in which success could take root. It provided targeted professional development to better equip teachers to help students succeed. It promoted the importance of an entire school working together to ensure the growth of all students. TIPA also focused on factors such as improving student attendance and increasing student and parent satisfaction.
Thanks largely to a federal grant and support of the PWCS School Board, the TIPA recognition means our entire instructional team will receive financial incentives for the work they have done on behalf of our students. More importantly, it reinforces the importance of that work to closing the achievement gap.
We have more work to do to improve our test scores and to ensure the academic proficiency of each and every student; this recognition confirms that we are on the right path. It means we are delivering on the PWCS commitment to continuous improvement and Providing A World-Class Education to every child.
Congratulations to our Minnieville staff for this important achievement. And special thanks to all of you for your continued support. Together, we can help your child make real progress on their journey to a lifetime of success.
NO CHILD LEFT BEHIND PARENT ANNOUNCEMENT
Parental Notification Requirements in Title I Schools for No Child Left Behind
 
This notice will expire June 30, 2016.
 
The No Child Left Behind (NCLB) legislation has three requirements for parental notification from Title I schools. The requirements are:
 
Requirement 1: Parents may request information
Parents in Title I schools must be notified at the beginning of each school year that they have the right to request, and the Division will provide on request, information regarding the professional qualifications of the student's classroom teachers, including:
  1. Whether the teacher has met state qualifications and licensing criteria for the grade levels and subjects the teacher is teaching.
  2. Whether the teacher is teaching under emergency or other provisional status through which state qualification or licensing has been waived.
  3. The baccalaureate degree major of certification or degree held by the teacher, and the field of discipline of the certification or degree.
  4. Whether the child is provided services by paraprofessionals and, if so, their qualifications.
Requirement 1 applies to any teacher of a core subject working in a Title I school. In Attachment A you will find a list of teachers in your school who are not Highly Qualified under the guidelines of NCLB. The law states that parents may request this information. We are asking that you include the following paragraph in your next newsletter to parents:
 
PARENTAL RIGHT TO INFORMATION ABOUT TEACHERS:

MINNIEVILLE IS A NATIONAL MODEL PLC SCHOOL
MINNIEVILLE ELEMENTARY RECOGNIZED AS A MODEL PROFESSIONAL LEARNING COMMUNITY AT WORK

One of About 200 Schools and Districts in the US and Canada to Receive This Honor

Woodbridge, VA - Minnieville E.S. in Prince William County was recently recognized by Solution Tree for its sustained success in raising student achievement. The Minnieville's successful implementation of the Professional Learning Communities at Workprocess was a major contributing factor in the improved achievement of its students.

PLCs are schools and districts in which educators recognize the key to improved learning for students is on-going, job-embedded learning for the adults who serve those students. The three big ideas of a PLC call upon educators to:
  1. Focus on learning.
  2. Build a collaborative culture.
  3. Create a results orientation.
Responding to news of the recognition, Nathaniel Provencio, Principal said, “The Professional Learning Process is the structure our school utilizes to make each routine, procedure, activity, lesson, intervention, etc. meaningful and relevant to the academic and social growth of each student.  We are very excited to be recognized by Solution Tree as a model PLC community!”

Schools are recognized based on strict criteria, including demonstration of a commitment to PLC concepts, implementation of these concepts for at least three years, and clear evidence of improved student learning over that period. Once measurable results can be seen, the school must explain its practices, structures, and culture and submit its application for consideration by the PLC Review Committee.
According to Richard DuFour, Rebecca DuFour, Robert Eaker, and Mike Mattos, architects of PLC at Work™, educators in the schools and districts selected for this recognition have shown “a sustained commitment to helping all of their students achieve at high levels. They have been willing to alter the structure and culture of the organization to reflect their commitment. We applaud them and congratulate them for achieving this very significant milestone on the never-ending PLC journey.”

Recognized model PLC schools are listed on allthingsplc.info, where they share implementation strategies, structures, and performance with other educators interested in improving their schools. Tools for team collaboration, articles and research about PLCs, blog posts, and other related resources are also available on the site. The site was developed and is maintained by Solution Tree, a leading provider of educational strategies and tools that improve staff and student performance. For more than 20 years, Solution Tree resources have helped K–12 teachers and administrators create schools where all children succeed.
