Starting in mid-2012, more than 200 Bancroft leaders, teachers and parents came together to develop a new vision for our school. Initially we met in focus groups to share our hopes and dreams for our children. In December, a small group spent a day drafting the vision. We unveiled the final vision at the State of the School event on January 30, 2013.
We will work with the LSAT, teachers, and others over the next 3 months to develop a strategic plan to carry out the vision and meet our ambitious goals.
Bancroft’s purpose is to inspire and enable all students to reach their full potential in and beyond elementary school.
Bancroft is a diverse and vibrant community of learners preparing all students to be high-achieving, bilingual global citizens who lead in the 21st century.
In 5 years,
As a community of learners, we will pursue our purpose and ambition with urgency guided by these beliefs:
* 80% of trackable students (which may only extend to DCPS but could extend to charter schools by that time).
** We will embark on a learning year, to discover how we would know that students are leading their own education, engaged in the classroom, and developing the 21st century skills of collaboration, critical thinking, etc.
