Describe campus/program, goals, and theory of change
Campus goals include meeting the State Accountability Standards and every student will meet TSI standards. Our theory of change is for every student to graduate from Madla ECHS college eligible and college ready.
Describe Blueprint Benchmark strengths
BM 1: Our recruitment and enrollment process and requirements are open to all students. We do not request nor require grades, discipline records, state assessment
scores, writing samples, teacher recommendations, or a minimum grade point average. All students have an equal opportunity and acceptance is performance-blind.
BM 3 and 6: We have a highly valued relationship with Palo Alto College and we are housed on the college campus in college facilities.
Associate of Arts
Associate of Science.
What areas of interest do you have for Technical Assistance (up to 3 areas, rank in order of importance)?
We are constantly seeking: TSI readiness programs or preparation that will assist our student achieving met status for each area as soon as possible; scheduling ideas for mirroring the college schedule; and appropriate and meaning use of dead time between non-college day and required public school attended days.
What tools or resources would be valuable to your campus to support your implementation of the blueprint?
Assistance in blending the high school and college schedule efficiently would greatly enhance our overall school experience.
What have been your challenges and how have you addressed them?
Providing resources and attending to the social and emotional needs of our students has been a challenge with limited staff. We have been able to use the Communities in School staff member but it has been limited since that service is shared with the other schools in the district. We are able to the PAC social services and counseling department.
