School Description and Mission Statement (School Year 2018-19)

Bishop Elementary School is located in Sunnyvale, California in the heart of Silicon Valley. Our 500 students in transitional kindergarten through fifth grade represent several ethnic backgrounds including Hispanic, Caucasian, Filipino, and Asian. Our families come from a variety of occupations, educational levels, and socioeconomic backgrounds, making Bishop a diverse community.

Our instructional program provides students with in-depth knowledge in the core subject areas. Teachers use the Common Core Standards and state adopted curriculum to offer students engaging and meaningful learning opportunities. Teachers collaborate weekly to look at student progress and then design and adjust instruction to meet the needs of all students. Other programs include iReady Math, Contexts for Learning, Headsprout, Raz-Kids, Reading Partners, Kids Learning After School (KLAS), Physical Education, as well as arts instruction in music, theater, visual arts, and dance.

Our Positive Behavioral Intervention Support (PBIS) Program strengthens our safe, respectful and responsible learning environment for all of our students. Our partnership with PlayWorks provides students with structured play through classroom lessons and organized games on the playground.

Finally, as a Leader in Me school, students, parents, teachers, and staff learn how to be responsible, show initiative, be creative, set goals and meet them, get along with people of various backgrounds and cultures, and resolve conflicts and solve problems. Everyone learns how to apply the 7 Habits to their work and personal lives. Through ongoing professional development and coaching, we have deeply learned the 7 Habits to enhance the safe, respectful and responsible Bishop school culture. Leadership roles and events take place throughout the school year for our entire community. We apply what we learn more deeply to academics through goal setting, data tracking, and student-led conferences. Together, we recognize and celebrate the greatness of each child and provide students with multiple opportunities to develop their full potential.

 

School Mission Statement

We empower everyone to have a voice and the confidence to persevere as learners and leaders who will inspire change in themselves and in the world.

 

School Motto

Lead Together and Inspire Change

The SARC provides the following information relevant to the State priority: Pupil Achievement (Priority 4):

• Statewide assessments (i.e., California Assessment of Student Performance and Progress [CAASPP] System, which includes the Smarter Balanced Summative Assessments for students in the general education population and the California Alternate Assessments [CAAs] for English language arts/literacy [ELA] and mathematics given in grades three through eight and grade eleven. Only eligible students may participate in the administration of the CAAs. CAAs items are aligned with alternate achievement standards, which are linked with the Common Core State Standards [CCSS] for students with the most significant cognitive disabilities); and

• The percentage of students who have successfully completed courses that satisfy the requirements for entrance to the University of California and the California State University, or career technical education sequences or programs of study.

CAASPP Test Results in English Language Arts/Literacy (ELA) and Mathematics for All Students Grades Three through Eight and Grade Eleven

Note: Percentages are not calculated when the number of students tested is ten or less, either because the number of students in this category is too small for statistical accuracy or to protect student privacy.
Note: ELA and mathematics test results include the Smarter Balanced Summative Assessment and the CAA. The “Percent Met or Exceeded” is calculated by taking the total number of students who met or exceeded the standard on the Smarter Balanced Summative Assessment plus the total number of students who met the standard (i.e., achieved Level 3–Alternate) on the CAAs divided by the total number of students who participated in both assessments.

Note: Double dashes (–) appear in the table when the number of students is ten or less, either because the number of students in this category is too small for statistical accuracy or to protect student privacy.
Note: The number of students tested includes all students who participated in the test whether they received a score or not; however, the number of students tested is not the number that was used to calculate the achievement level percentages. The achievement level percentages are calculated using only students who received scores.
