NPE School Governance Requests Your Comments
New Prospect Elementary School's School Governance Council (SGC) has developed a school strategic plan which requires us to petition Fulton County Schools for certain Requests for Flexibility (RFF). This request, if approved by the Superintendent, will address the needs of New Prospect Elementary through waivers of state laws and/or district policies to implement our school-based strategic plan.
We are interested in your comments about this NPES Request for Flexibility Proposal.
There are several ways you can share your remarks:
1. Complete a Comment Form in the New Prospect front office.
2. Complete an online Comment Form (below)
3. Attend the SGC meeting at 7:15am on 11/16/15 in the Gold conference Room to offer your comments.
4. Attend the Curriculum chat offered on November 30 at 11:00am and/or 6:00pm to share your comments.
5. Email comments to SGC Chairperson, Lisa Garofolo at GarofoloL@fultonschools.org or our Principal, Mary Robson at email@example.com.
Please note that all comments must be received by 12/3/15 and that all comments will become a part of the School Governance Council's open records and will be available to all for viewing.

Our WONDERFUL PTA has purchased GOQUEST for all of our students. In prior years, Fulton County has provided access to TAG students, but thanks to our parents (and their generous donations) we will now have access for ALL NPE students. Our staff will receive professional development (training) to support implementation. Stay tuned for GOQUEST updates…
GoQuest features personalized instruction matched to student interests and learning preferences.
The Renzulli Profiler® generates a snapshot of student interests and expression preferences, enabling teachers to match content, activities and projects more completely to personalize the learning experience for each student.
The research database of more than 40,000 curated online resources gives students and educators a vast pool of thoroughly vetted digital content aligned to standards and student learning preferences.
The differentiation engine allows teachers to individualize instruction for each and every student with just a click or two of the mouse.
An expanded set of inquiry and project based learning tools enables educators to customize challenges based on learning goals, standards, and student interests – or choose from preconfigured projects and activities. Students pursue self-directed study that encourages reasoning, evaluation, and articulation – steeping them in the critical skills necessary for college and career success.

NEEDED - Front Office Volunteers
If you are looking for a quick way to volunteer your time Amy Batley could use an extra pair of hands to help. With the doorbell, phone and visitors all day it would be great even if you could help out for even an hour. If you are interested send a quick email with the times and dates you can come in.
