Canterbury Elementary School has been gathering a baseline of data for the 2017-2018 school year in the areas of Language Arts and Math using the NWEA MAP Growth assessment. Students in grades one through four have been excited about using the Chromebooks to complete the electronic assessment. Technology skills are being developed by students having to click, double-click, and drag-and-drop to answer questions. This will definitely be beneficial for the Smarter Balanced State Testing.

Teachers will review the data, along with other data that has been collected within their classroom to better direct their teaching to the needs of each student.

stop bullying

The Canterbury Public Schools Safe School Climate Plan is developed and addresses the existence of bullying in its schools. A core component of preventing bullying and creating an environment that is safe for all is the ability for students to anonymously report acts of bullying and teen dating violence to school employees. Students can use the reporting form below or can text information to the school bullying reporting hotline at (401) 992- 4132  or simply write down the information and share with a teacher or administrator. Both online forms of reporting are directed to a school administrator who will follow the procedures and protocols in compliance with the Canterbury Public Schools Safe School Climate Plan.
