Shaftsbury & SVSU
Welcome to Shaftsbury Elementary School
The staff at Shaftsbury Elementary continues to work hard to educate our students. We have a culture of professional collaboration and an infrastructure that effectively and efficiently uses the expertise and dedication of our highly qualified staff and available resources.
Our goals for this year were many; a focus on student progress, technology and social/emotional learning. We are currently in year two of MultiTiered Systems of Supports (MTSS) for math and literacy. This approach to instruction and intervention is comprehensive and systematic to assess and monitor student performance academically.
Shaftsbury prides itself in preparing our students for the 21st century. We now have 1:1 computing throughout the school. This year the teachers have begun to explore the SAMR Model of technology integration, taking the use of technology from the Substituting stage to the Redefinition stage.
