Elsie Rogers is an A-rated school! A “focused instruction” elementary school, we use assessment data to identify reading and math skills/ standards that have the lowest rates of student mastery at each grade level. A mastery learning approach using pre/post tests and tutorial/enrichment activities are employed to increase and sustain student mastery. Teachers work in teams and all staff members play a role in either tutorial or enrichment groups. Elsie Rogers follows a block schedule that provides flexibility in scheduling academic instruction and common planning time for teachers. Some first/second, some second/third, and all fourth/fifth grade students are assigned to multiage classrooms. These students participate in both grade level and multiage instructional programs that are carefully structured to meet individual student needs and provide for continuous academic progress for all students.
Students in grades K-5 receive instruction from specialists in the areas of general music and health/fitness. Each class visits the IMC (Instructional Media Center/Library) on a weekly basis where students are encouraged to borrow books for recreational and informational reading. Each class also visits the Computer Lab at least once a week for structured lessons using keyboard and other software programs that provide for skill remediation, skill development, skill practice, and/or enrichment.
Elsie Rogers provides an inclusive environment for students with special needs. Support services are provided both in the general education classroom and in the resource room for students with a variety of exceptionalities. A Speech and Language Specialist provides services for students with communication disorders. A full-time program for emotionally disabled students, an inclusion-based preschool program and a preschool language inervention program are also housed at Elsie Rogers.

LEA Annual Report Cards
Beginning with 2017-2018 data, the Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA) requires each local educational agency (LEA) that receives Title I assistance to prepare and disseminate an annual LEA report card. An LEA report card must be concise and presented in an understandable and uniform format for parents. ESSA requires each LEA to share its report card on its website, or if the LEA does not have a website, in another public manner determined by the LEA.
In order to comply with this requirement, the LEA may develop its own report card in compliance with all reporting requirements, or provide on its website a link to IDOE's accountability data link for the LEA. All required data points for LEAs and schools will be included on IDOE's Compass site. Beginning in the 2019-2020 school year, LEAs will be required to provide IDOE the URL location where the LEA has provided its report card for the district and school levels to the public. The submission of this information will be provided through the LEA’s Title I application.
The school has an active PTO that sponsors various student activities and projects. Parent and community members serve as volunteers in various ways throughout the school.
