Welcome to East Washington Academy
A message from the Principal — Mr. Scott Blakely
East Washington Academy is excited to present yet another great school year built around academics and excellence in all areas. It is truly an honor and a privilege to serve as the principal at East Washington Academy. East Washington Academy made many academic gains during the 2011-12 school year and we look forward to the challenges ahead of us. If you ever have any questions, comments, or suggestions, please contact me.
It has been a pleasure working with the students, staff and parents/caregivers of East Washington Academy. It is the mission at East Washington Academy and Muncie Community Schools to provide a quality educational environment that allows every student to maximize his or her potential, and upon graduation, possess the basic skills necessary to be a positive, productive, contributing member of society. We believe this mission can be accomplished with the school improvement plan that is in place at East Washington Academy.
To conclude, I would like to share with the EWA stakeholders a snapshot of the EWA school improvement plan.
This plan includes but is not limited to:
8-Step Process for Improvement
Targeted small group instruction (reading and math)
Frequent progress monitoring of students to assess the impact of the core and small group instruction (i.e. Acuity, DIBELS, MClass Math etc.)
Monthly grade level collaboration meetings to view student math and reading scores and determine how to meet the diverse learning needs in each classroom
Weekly general education/special education problem solving meetings to address the needs of struggling students
A phenomenal group of educators and support staff who truly want to teach and inspire our children
