resources unique to their business/operation.
The Blanchard After School Enrichment Program (BASEP) is in operation after school from 2:30 PM – 6:00 PM. Registration must be completed before a child is allowed to attend the program. An enrollment form is provided as the last page of the booklet. Retain the remainder of this booklet for future reference. Drop-ins must also complete a registration form.
2019-2020 School Improvement Plan
Climate: To strengthen teaching behaviors and an effective discipline process, lesson plans will be taught by May 2020 by 80% of teachers as measured by a developed observation/ focus walk instrument.
Academic: By May 2020, 80% of the teachers will participate in professional development and implement effective strategies using the workshop model in various content areas as measured by a developed observation/focus walk instrument.
My child has come so far academically since attending Blanchard and loves going to school every day. The teachers take great care and time with students. The school is a warm, welcoming learning environment.
