Teacher Incentive Performance Awards (TIPA)
Dear Parents/Guardians:
 
I am proud to announce that for the third time Dale City Elementary and our instructional staff are among the recipients of Prince William County Public Schools' annual Teacher Incentive Performance Awards (TIPA) for having demonstrated student growth and achievement, quality teaching, and the school environment needed to help children make major educational strides.
Unlike so many awards that focus exclusively on the results of one specific test or measurement, TIPA considers 23 different criteria to assess participating schools on their ability to produce rapid and significant academic progress among children who may start out far behind their peers.
The TIPA project makes certain we offer a climate in which success can take root. It provides targeted professional development to better equip teachers to help students succeed. It promotes the importance of an entire school working together to ensure the growth of all students. TIPA also focuses on factors such as improving student attendance and increasing student and parent satisfaction.
Thanks largely to a federal grant and support of the PWCS School Board, the TIPA recognition means our entire instructional team will receive financial incentives for the work they are doing on behalf of our students. More importantly, it reinforces the importance of that work to closing the achievement gap.
We have more work to do to improve our test scores and to ensure the academic proficiency of each and every student; this recognition confirms that we are on the right path. It means we are delivering on the PWCS commitment to continuous improvement and Providing A World-Class Education to every child.
Congratulations to our Dale City Elementary staff for this important achievement. And special thanks to all of you for your continued support. Together, we can help your child make real progress on their journey to a lifetime of success.
 
Best regards,
 
Cindy Crowe-Miller
Principal

Computers are everywhere, but fewer schools teach computer science than 10 years ago. Good news is, we're on our way to change this. If you heard about the Hour of Code last year, you might know it made history. In one week, 15 million students tried computer science!

Computer science was on homepages of Google, MSN, Yahoo! and Disney. President Obama, Shakira and Ashton Kutcher all kicked off the Hour of Code with videos. Over 100 partners came together to support this movement.

This year, let's make it even bigger. I’m asking you to join in for the Hour of Code 2014. Please get involved with an Hour of Code event during Computer Science Education Week, December 8-14, 2014.

Get the word out. Host an event. Ask a local school to sign up. Or try the Hour of Code yourself - everyone can benefit from learning the basics.

Help us reach 100 million students by the end of the year! Get started at http://hourofcode.com
