Working Together To Make A Difference
The Antelope School District is committed to providing our students with a world-class education. We are preparing our students to be confident, capable, and responsible citizens of a global society. We will work together as a team of parents, educators, and community members in order to achieve the goal of success for all our students.
Many changes to the District....For the best.
Change is constant; at least that is what I hear. It is most definitely true in education, though it does take time. The switch to Common Core Standards, technology revolutionizing education, and continued challenges in school finance reform, is creating a great opportunity for Antelope Elementary School District. As we move away from the familiar California State Standards, we are embracing the in-depth instruction, higher level thinking, and learning by inquiry that will be required under the Common Core Standards. In anticipation of this shift, and the ever increasing role of technology, Antelope Elementary will be revising its Strategic/LEA plan in the coming months. This plan was originally approved three years ago. In addition, the district added three new schools. Manton Elementary, Plum Valley Elementary, and Mineral Elementary. This lapsation benefits the schools in the area of programs, financial stability, and academic interventions. To take on the new challenges, the board has taken action already to support our students and staff. A Director of Curriculum and Assessment position was created to support teachers. A Full-time Pupil Services Coordinator was created to increase services such as; counseling, attendance, behavior management training, and student centered programs. Finally, I am at Berrendos Middle School to serve as Principal, while maintaining the Superintendent duties. Mr. Rich Hassay as principal, will focus solely on the needs of Antelope Elementary. Yes, lots of changes. It is exciting times, and I am looking forward to sharing them with you.
Healthy Families Information
It is understood that facebook, twitter, and other social media networks are an incredible way of communicating; however, when it comes to information regarding school related items, please be sure to check the facts with the school via the district website, or office. An all call will be sent as an official notification.
The district is committed to communicate successfully with parents when it comes to power outages, and potential emergencies. We will post information regarding situations like these on our website as they materialize. The website address is www.antelopeschools.org. Also, we will be verifying with parents what primary phone number to contact on any all call. Again, thanks for your patience, and your support is much appreciated.
