Florence Griffith Joyner Receives 2 year Approval from LAUSD Superintendent Dr. John Deasy
Last Spring, Florence Griffith Joyner Elementary was visited by several top level administrators from LAUSD and the Partnership for LA Schools, for a school-wide review. The review included classroom visits, interviews with students, parents, staff and teachers. The goal of the visit was to determine if Griffith Joyner had made gains in the instructional program in the past two years.
We were very excited when we received a letter from Superintendent Dr. John Deasy telling us that Griffith Joyner had improved in school culture, school safety, teaching and learning.
We believe that our hard work improving student behavior is credited with implementing Second Step, Caught Being Good, Girl Scouts and Playworks programs have helped with student behavior.
We are also very excited that students told the LAUSD Team that they are learning more about reading and writing, drama, social studies, science, math, physical education, music and technology then they ever had in the past.
We are very excited about continuing the great programs that we have in place at Griffith Joyner during the 2014-15 school year.
