PHS Wall to Wall FAQ's
Wall to Wall FAQ's

1. Will the grading system remain the same?Yes the grading system will be the same.

2. How will the block schedule work? We will be doing an A/B block and an eight period day.  For example if we have a full week we will have 4 days of block and one day of 8 period day.  If we have a four day week we will have 4 block day.  If it is a three day week we will have 2 block and 1 eight period day.  Trying to keep the week balanced out so we always start a week with the same schedule.

3. If my student changes after a year what changes besides advisory group/teachers? Nothing really.  

4. Will information be sent home? I have read all the links/documents.  I will keep posting things online and as we get closer to the start of the school year I am planning on putting together an information flyer an will put an FAQ section on the website.

5. Will the advisory group work like now? Who will a parent contact be?  The advisory will be very similar to what we have now.  The major difference will be that each advisory will have a business mentor come meet with them once a month.

AdvancED District Accreditation-THANK YOU!
Josh St. Louis, AdvancED external team member said:
 
I had a great time observing your classrooms and engaging in conversation with all stakeholders. You have great leadership throughout the district, starting with your office and extending to all sites. The tone of all conversations was respectful, and it was clear through those conversations that everyone's focus is on what is best for students. You have much to be proud of in your schools and community!” 

Plattsmouth Community Schools (PCS) currently has district accreditation for our education programs through an international organization known as AdvancED. We utilize AdvancED for school and district improvement. More information is available at http://www.advanc-ed.org/.
 
Every five years, an external review team visits our district and assists with identifying strengths and areas in need of improvement. Our external visit was held from Mar. 6-9, 2016.
 
While the external team was here, they interviewed 293 stakeholders (community members, students, Board members, teachers, administrators, and other staff members). Thank you to everyone that assisted with our review. Your honest input helped communicate our strengths and areas for growth, as we continue on a path of continuous improvement. The external team is recommending that PCS be approved for District accreditation.

Our final external report is available. Click
