Vaughn Elementary Parents visit CU Denver! 

 CU Denver Trip - Vaughn Attendees 3-1-16

On Tuesday, March 1st Vaughn Parents had the opportunity to get a head start on how to plan for their child’s future.  With the collaborating effort by Fatimah Ben-Masaud, PWR Coordinator and Minnie Pescador, Vaughn’s Family Liaison; parents spent the day hearing information about not only how to handle the financial aspect of going to college but also how to prepare their child to be ready for college.  School ambassadors also took them on a trip of the campus and all it has to offer our future college students.  It’s never too early to start planning for your child’s future!


Vaughn Goals:

Academic Achievement = Reading Proficiency + Math Proficiency

Build a Positive School Culture = Increase Behavioral Engagement  + Increase School Attendance 

How will we accomplish these goals? 

Priority #1: By Creating a Safe and Compassionate Learning Environment

 Priority #2: By Creating a Learning & Teaching Culture

Priority #3: By Creating  a Culture of Inquiry

Priority #4: By Developing a systematic MTSS Structure to support all students
