Whole School Reform Design
Project GRAD (Graduation Really Achieves Dreams) was selected by the staff because it is a school-community collaborative designed to improve the instructional quality and culture of at-risk feeder patterns in school systems. The goal of the program is to find and implement the most cost-effective, research-based prescription for addressing the educational needs of an inner-city school system. Project GRAD seeks to prove that the problems facing inner-city school systems can be overcome with the right resources, strategies, and school-community collaboration. The Project GRAD program components utilized in elementary schools are:
MOVE IT Math (Math Opportunities, Valuable Experiences and Innovative Teaching) is a student-centered kindergarten through grade six instructional program to improve the teaching and learning of math.
Communities in Schools (CIS) is a non-profit, dropout prevention program and social service agency that provides guidance, counseling, community outreach and family case-management services to at-risk children.
Success For All (SFA) is a school-wide reading and writing program for students in grades pre-kindergarten through middle school that emphasizes early intervention to ensure that every student succeeds in reading throughout the elementary grades.
Consistency Management Cooperative Discipline (CMCD) is a comprehensive program tailored to respond to individual campus needs that builds on shared responsibility for learning and classroom organization between teachers and students.
A Tribute To Mrs. Eunice Robinson
Retiring from the Atlanta Publics Schools in 2008, Mrs. Eunice Robinson leaves a shining legacy that has impacted students, teachers, and parents for over 30 years. Under her leadership, M. Agnes Jones Elementary School has met or exceeded local, state, and national goals for the past six years. Recognizing the importance of the arts, Mrs. Robinson co-founded the Invitational Art Education Fair and was instrumental in guiding the Masterpiece of Learning and On Site/Insight intiatives. Although officially retired, we look forward to her continued leadership as M. Agnes Jones and the Atlanta Public Schools continues to improve instructional delivery, academic achievement, and creative excellence in the lives of our students.
