School Description and Mission Statement (School Year 2017-18)
Edison Academy of Differentiated Learning is one of thirty-two schools in the Ontario-Montclair School District. Edison is located in the northern portion of the district and serves students from Ontario and Upland. It is one of the smallest physical plants in the district and currently has fifteen portable classrooms in use in addition to the permanent buildings, bringing the total number of classrooms to thirty-one. Edison Elementary School received the Title I Academic Achievement Award in 2007, 2008, and 2009. Edison was chosen by the Campaign for Business and Education Excellence (CBEE) as 2017 Honor Roll recipients. In addition, Edison received recognition as a Five Star school from the California Association of Gifted Learners in 2015 and became a Gold Ribbon School through the California Department of Education that same year. In 2017, Edison became a PBIS Gold School.
There are thirty classroom teachers and one full-time resource specialist at Edison. There are also two administrators including the principal and elementary administrator. Local Control and Categorical Funding provides for the support services of an outreach consultant, and an instructional coach. Additional support is provided by the administrative assistant, the school office assistant, an additional part-time office assistant, a health services assistant, two full-time custodians and one part-time custodian, three part-time cafeteria workers and five noon aides. In addition, the district provides a physical education teacher and four physical education aides, an instrumental music teacher, a school nurse, a psychologist, a speech/language specialist, and a speech aide on a part-time basis.
Students, staff, and parents work together to promote academic excellence. To prepare students socially, emotionally and academically the development of self-discipline and individual responsibility is essential. Edison School’s programs are designed to focus on achievement through responsible learning. Academic goals for our students focus on the achievement of identified standards in reading, language arts and math, English proficiency for our English language learners, and the development of behaviors reflecting physical, social and emotional well-being.
Student progress is monitored by a variety of means. On a yearly basis, the CAASPP (California Assessment of Student Performance and Progress) provided data for third through eighth-grade students. Edison also utilizes data from the common site and district assessments in reading, writing, and mathematics to plan for program improvements and develop school-wide focus areas. Teachers participate in data and planning meetings following assessments to discuss results and determine grade level practices and next steps. Edison is developing a multi-tiered system of support to provide appropriate services to all students.
School-wide programs include Reading Counts for all students and leadership for upper-grade students. We have an Elementary and Middle school sports program and participate in a variety of events including science fair, spelling bee, Read Across America, and Red Ribbon Week. We host trimester awards to recognize students for academic achievement and attendance. Edison established a PBIS citizenship program called Choose the Right Path to promote positive behavior in motivating ways for students. Students are recognized weekly for Choosing the Right Path and demonstrating Respect, Responsibility, Honesty, and Integrity.
Decision making is guided by the following vision and mission at Edison Academy:
- Vision: Empower students to become successful citizens.
- Mission: Through innovative approaches to teaching and differentiated instruction, we will promote deep and complex thinking, responsibility, and collaboration.
