Reimagining the School Experience

The District believes that new industry specific opportunities for career exploration is the best way to reimagine the school experience. At 177Q we are aligned to this vision of creating worksites and expanding worksites that will meet the needs of society. Such worksites include working with City Council offices, tech repair, DJing, supply delivering, etc. 

Scaling and Sustaining what works

The District believes that the continuation of Lexia will support this pillar. 177Q is a 99% alternate assessment school with a focus on literacy this school year for K-5 students. Our use of standards based Fundations and SMILE use similar literacy strategies and enhance the instruction of students. 

Prioritizing Wellness and the Impact on Students

District is involved in the Healed Centered School Initiative. 177Q also is one of the schools in this pilot program that is supported by our CEC and PTA. 177Q also believes that mindfulness, SEL, CHAMPS, dance, the arts and Special Olympics promotes this alignment and focus. 

Partnership with Parents

Programs that D75 is promoting to align to this pillar is Journey to Independence and STEM for all. 177Q is a partner with STEM for girls. 177Q also believes in this pillar and District aligned by creating a parent empowerment room that will give the resources parents needs to become school-home partners with the school and students.

Alignment to NYCDOE and District 75 Priorities

baseline label.JPG

The Panther Plan aligned the vision and mission of 177Q to NYC DOE and District 75 Priorities. All members of 177Q are familiar with the priorities outlined in this document and incorporate their core values into their daily practices. Students are familiar with these priorities as well, most notably through the personal connections they make to our WE DO CARE statement. 

 

Though the needs of our school have evolved after the pandemic, the vision and mission statements of our school continue to be relevant and meaningful to our school, are aligned to the District 75 priorities, and are evident throughout all that we do. 

 

The instructional goals outlined in the CEP are vision/mission/core value and budgetarily aligned to ensure student success. CEP goals are routinely monitored by the SLT and data team members

Stakeholders

The 177Q community continues to showcase its vision and mission through school-wide events and programs. 

 

Through elected official influnence grants and programs, as well as through the dedication of our librarian and administration, 177Q students and staff have access to culturally responsive and relevant resources, opportunities for worksite training, and a new comfortable and safe space to learn.

 

177Q’s Parent Coordinator has set up Twitter and Instagram accounts for 177Q as a tool to further share information to our families and staff. Social Media posts include information about upcoming programs and photographs from school-wide events and special programs. In addition to social media, 177Q uses LinkTree as a platform by which to link all their social media, websites, virtual offices, and presentations onto one interface. This allows for increased accessibility for families and staff. Additionally, the LinkTree QR code is used on school materials such as event programs and guest passes to further increase access to school information. 

 

The 177Q school community celebrates Panther Pride and embodies our mission of We Do Care each and every moment of the day. The 177Q school vision and mission are purposely shared and communicated with stakeholders starting with the initial introduction of hiring, parent/student orientation and to all current school members at the beginning opening meetings and first parent meeting in the fall. The vision and mission are visually and verbally shared with students in their classes. 177Q Student Council reiterates this practice in all meetings and in their community service practices. 

 

Technology systems and 177Q School Website serves are a tool to spread our school vision. We pride ourselves on communicating to stakeholders by using internet based systems as much as possible. Through parent, staff and student immersion, delivery of technology to all families and consistent trainings for our families and staff,  we live in our Mission Statement by Empowering our school community and Welcoming them to a digital age.

In the Fall of 2022, the Instructional Leadership Team, composed of diverse stakeholders from across our school community, engaged in a collaborative discussion about instructional priorities for students in alignment with the Chancellor’s Pillars and District 75 Priorities.Team members reviewed several proposed priorities and, after identifying a common theme, prioritized student independence and self-advocacy as the ILT focus. 

ILT committees will be working on the design and implementation of school-wide structures to focus on the meaningful facilitation of student communication and independence through pre-vocational and job skills programs and in student participation in leisure activities. The team’s work will also include rubric design, data analysis, and student assessments to support and assess their work.

Professional Learning Communities

Cohort meetings with teacher teams allow the vision and mission to take place in real time. Teacher teams analyze student work to help develop better practices that in turn promote each component of the mission. We also strive to make teachers lifelong learners in this process that also aligns to our Core Value and Mission Statements. 

 

Common Planning Time allows for teachers to prepare instruction for functional reading and math skills along with life skills preparation.  Common Planning time also allows for teachers to align the Unique curriculum to student IEP goals, review SANDI and FAST scores, and participate in inquiry work that is relevant to their students.

During the Fall 2022 Semester Student Council members organized a tee shirt sale for Breast Cancer awareness, and also spearheaded a walk to bring attention to this issue. Currently, everyone at the School is waiting excitedly for the results of our Student Council Leaders election results. During this process, which took place during the week of regular elections, every student has had the opportunity to have a vote, and have their voices heard. This fall the Student Council has expanded its outreach to our Martin Van Buren 177@435 Site. Council faculty Advisers have regular monthly communications with our corresponding Staff adviser for that site, and work collaboratively in brainstorming and evaluating how best to include our students currently enrolled there.
