The Crime Stoppers in Schools program in Sedgwick County has created the Speak Up! program, which allows students, staff, and parents the ability to send anonymous tips through a secure website, smartphone app, or by phone to keep their schools safe. All messages are encrypted and routed through secure servers to protect the sender. The user is given an alias and a unique ID before the message is sent to the Speak Up Coordinator for USD 261. This allows the user and the coordinator to have a two-way dialog without revealing the sender’s identity. The funding for the service is provided by Crime Stoppers of Wichita/Sedgwick County.

Oatville Elementary School has once again been recognized by the Flippen Group to receive a Capturing Kids’ Hearts National Showcase SchoolsTM award for the 2018-2019 school year.
Through the Capturing Kids’ Hearts National Showcase Schools awards, the Flippen Group recognizes and celebrates campuses that go the extra mile each day, building an environment where students and staff feel safe and connected. Capturing Kids’ Hearts campuses across the country were considered for these awards based on the following criteria: 1) nomination based on observation by Flippen Group personnel, 2) level of implementation of Capturing Kids’ Hearts processes by all staff as measured by online surveys, and 3) data demonstrating that Capturing Kids’ Hearts has made a significant improvement in attendance, discipline, climate/culture, or academics.
A Flippen Group team visited each nominated campus to gather additional quantitative and qualitative data, and to interview students, teachers, administrators, and parents. They used a matrix of key measurements to gather information during the campus walk-through. Finally, an additional survey was conducted to collect feedback regarding the perceived climate and culture of the campus and its conduciveness to learning. Following this visit, the selection team reviewed all accumulated data and selected the campuses to receive the Capturing Kids’ Hearts National Showcase Schools awards.
The Literacy First process is the heart of our instructional system. Literacy First is a professional development program that builds an understanding of the role literacy plays in academic achievement and reinforces the skills needed to address student performance challenges in reading comprehension and the content areas. In using the Literacy First approach teachers are better able to meet student needs through concentrated and direct reading instruction. Instruction is assessment driven and directed according to individual student needs. In turn, students find more success and assurance in reading that carries across the curriculum.
We have Literacy First Consultants in each building. If you have any questions about Literacy First or other academic areas, please feel free to contact your child’s teacher, call me at 554-2290, email email@example.com, or check out the official website: www.literacyfirst.com
