School Plan for Shared Student Achievement

Let's Get Together!

Our School will host the following events to build capacity for strong parental involvement. Our goal is to support a partnership among the school, parents, and the community to improve student academic achievement.
DATE: 8/24/2023 
TIME: 4:00-6:00 

This opportunity provides parents and students to join us at the beginning of the school year (for 1st-5th grades) and prior to the start of school for our pre-K and kindergarten students. During this event, teachers will meet their students and families, share important information, and provide opportunities for families to stay involved in connected throughout the school year.

DATE: 10/05/2023
TIME: 6:00-8:00

Join us for an informative evening with our Royal families and teachers. Families will get an opportunity to learn about Title I and how Title I funds are being used to support our school. 

DATE: 11/9/2023
TIME: 6:00-8:00
Fall Festival

Join us for our family engagement night to celebrate the arrival of  Autumn. Our fall festival will include the book fair, food trucks, vendor and a family fun games.

Parent/Teacher Conferences 

These conferences are available at least two times a year and offered through a variety of platforms.  If parents have concerns, they can always request a more frequent conference. The conferences are scheduled with each teacher.


Strategic Plan 2020-2025

This guiding document, Blueprint 2025, is provided as a high-level overview of the district’s plan. In addition, we have provided a breakdown of strategies by goal.

Due to the significant and ongoing impact of COVID-19, designation of benchmarked measurable outcomes for each year is difficult to establish at this time. The district will use the 2021 spring assessment results as a baseline for yearly targets based upon each goal.

School Parent Compact
Together we will develop an agreement that parents, students and teachers will develop to explain how all stakeholders can work together to ensure all students reach grade-level standards.

Parent Resource Center
Parent and Family Engagement

Our Parent Resource Center is located in room 122, directly across from the main office as you enter the school. Parents can also find important information in our front office. 


We welcome you to visit Royal Elementary School any time if you need any resources, help, or support.

Royal Elementary believes that parental involvement means the participation for parents in regular two-way and meaningful communication about student academic learning and other school activities. 

This ensures that parents are full partners in their child’s academic development and are included, as appropriate, in decision-making and on advisory committees to assist in the education of their child.

School Improvement Team
Ways to Contact the School

Royal Elementary School is led by the School Improvement Team. Our SIT team includes representation from all grade levels, specialist areas, instructional assistants, and a parent representative. 

The School Improvement Team meets bi-monthly. Priority indicators selected and voted on by the team guides team members in improving instruction for all students, supporting and creating structures that enable teachers to provide rigorous and standards based instruction., and establishes a leadership team that encourages communication and collaboration. 

We set goals and have developed checkpoints to measure progress toward the goals as well as designating the person who will provide leadership for implementation of each goal. As goals are met, your School Improvement Team raises the bar for students and teachers.

We want to hear from you. If you have suggestions or if there is any part of this plan that you feel does not align with the students’ and schools’ goals for academic achievement, please email one of the following school representatives.
