Our Purpose

 
The purpose of Heritage Elementary is to prepare our students for tomorrow’s world by providing effective, innovative educational practices in a safe, supportive learning environment.
 
Mission Statement

Heritage School is an integral part of the community, which contributes to the education of youth. We recognize that individuals differ and attempt to meet the varying needs of all children enrolled in the school. The staff works toward establishing a school program that utilizes consistent methods and conforms to the latest knowledge relating to the learning process. By retaining the best of traditional practices and varying these approaches so that they are appropriate for the subject matter and the individuals being taught, this goal is attained. Together we work toward establishing a pupil-staff-parent relationship based on mutual respect to attain a common objective—fulfilling the educational needs of our children.
 

SPSA/SWP

State law requires that school-level plans for programs funded through the Consolidated Application be consolidated in a Single Plan for Student Achievement (Education Code Section 64001), developed by school site councils with the advice of any applicable school advisory committees. LEA’s allocate NCLB funds to schools through the Consolidated Application for Title I, Part A, Title III (Limited English Proficient), and Title V (Innovative Programs/Parental Choice). LEA’s may elect to allocate other funds to schools for inclusion in school plans. The content of the school plan includes school goals, activities, and expenditures for improving the academic performance of students to the proficient level and above. The plan delineates the actions that are required for program implementation and serves as the school's guide in evaluating progress toward meeting the goals.
 
 

Student Accountability Report Card (SARC)

The purpose of the Student Accountability Report Card (SARC) is to provide parents and the community with important information about each public school. A SARC can be an effective way for a school to report on its progress in achieving goals. The public may also use a SARC to evaluate and compare schools on a variety of indicators. State law requires every school in California to publish a School Accountability Report Card, by February 1 of each year.
