T.E.A.M. Academy Presentation
Transcript of T.E.A.M. Academy Presentation
) Academy strives for excellence both inside and outside the classroom. Our Mission Statement and our Educational Philosophy support and promote the goals of this academy, its teachers, the staff and its students.
We believe that each child is a unique individual in need of a secure, caring and stimulating atmosphere in which to grow and mature emotionally, intellectually, physically and socially. It is our desire as educators to help students meet their fullest potential in these areas by providing an environment that is safe, supports risk-taking and invites a sharing of ideas. We apply three elements that are conductive to establishing such an environment:
T.E.A.M Academy serves students in the greater Omaha metropolitan area from Pre-Kindergarten through 12th grade. T.E.A.M Academy promises to:
Provide high quality academic programs for students by enabling the students with the skills they need to be accepted by and succeed in college.
Promote academic accomplishment, positive character development, healthy lifestyles and leadership skills.
The teacher acting as a guide
Allowing the child's natural curiosity to direct his/her learning
Promoting respect for all things and people
As a centrally located charter school, you will discover that our curriculum and methods are more progressive than the average school in Omaha.
Our school takes pride in making sure everybody - staff, faculty and administration - is responsible for each student's success.
Our campus and each building is specifically designed to allow teachers to effectively and creatively teach and empower our students to succeed. Our academic calendar is specifically designed to maximize the learning potential while still giving students and teachers their well-deserved break periods.
WHAT STARTS HERE, CHANGES THE WORLD
Separated by pods, each grade level is able to work as a team while still maintaining the individual classroom experience
IT TAKES A WORLD OF DIFFERENCES TO MAKE A DIFFERENT WORLD
Incorporating lecture-style as well as standard classrooms, our students are able to learn in a variety of ways that can be tailored to help them succeed.

The Academic Excellence Committee is run by members of the faculty and staff which are elected annually at the end of each school year by a combination of their peers and parents of the students. They are responsible for most of the decisions made for the academy as a whole.
The superintendent watches over the daily operations of the entire academy. Responsibilities also include overseeing the financial distributions and answers to the committee by providing recommendations
Each school principal oversees the activities within their prospective school. They are also in charge of daily interactions with students and teachers and make recommendations to the superintendent.
The assistant principals are involved with daily interactions within their school and work directly with their principal. The assistant principals (along with the principals) all meet collectively on a monthly basis to discuss current strategies and future changes to the school.
Detailed Information About Our School
Our open-enrollment lottery system allows for equal opportunity for every student in the greater Omaha metropolitan area.
Highest accommodations will be made for students with special requirements.
Each class has 10-15 students per 1 teacher. Our student population is as follows:
Early Learning Center...........60
* due to a grant received from the state, transportation provided by STA, Inc.
multiple windows in each room allows for maximum amount of natural light to enter
Some of the things that set us apart from public schools in the area are our unique teaching methods. Our teachers' elected committee meets to discover new ways to effectively and creatively teach students making the most out of their peak learning times.
The teacher will instruct for 5 minutes, then the students will do an activity related to the instruction. This practice is repeated for a total of 3 times before moving on to another topic/activity. This is designed to incorporate learning through repetition and application (playing) as well as continually stimulating the child's mind.
MIDDLE/HIGH SCHOOL PRACTICES
At the beginning of each class period, the students receive a BURST lesson. This consists of the teacher diving straight into the new lesson of the day. After a 20-min burst, the students will do activity (homework, problems from the book etc.) related to the new lesson. Finally, there is a review from the previous day's lesson and the new lesson. (review last to solidify the information for maximum retention)
Teachers are required to actively participate in 1 or more student activity outside the classroom
Teachers are required to attend 2 conferences or workshops per year (1 must be specific pertaining to their endorsement or field of study)
In-School Health Centers
Due to the unique vantage point and access to students, In-School Health Centers with a nurse in each school and 1 on-staff Pediatrician, we have the ability to address the health concerns of our children and promote preventative health care all without causing extended disruption to learning in the classroom. Our centers also make accommodations for parents by offering school and sports physicals to include necessary vaccines.
Code of Conduct:
Teachers will not prohibit or withhold any student from their pursuit of knowledge and will make a reasonable effort to ensure a safe learning environment. Teachers will make good ethical decisions inside and outside the classroom.
We believe that every student and teacher has the right to feel safe. Our facilities are equipped with surveillance cameras in every hallway and pod for elementary. All doors will remain locked from the outside with secured access only at the main entrance. Security guards are assigned as follows:
Middle School........5 guards
High School............5 guards
Students must wear the school uniform with either black or brown shoes or white sneakers. Students will not wear articles of the uniform in ways for which they were not intended. Alteration/exchange appointments can be made through your school administrator. No modifications can be made to the uniform without prior approval from the assistant principal.
Student attendance and participation is crucial in their learning process. In the event of a student's absence, please notify the school immediately. Excessive absence/tardy will be handled on an individual basis.
Students will respect each other, the teachers, staff and all school property here at T.E.A.M. Academy.
Parents are expected to maintain a professional, positive and supportive relationship with T.E.A.M. Academy. Any inappropriate behavior on the part of a parent may result in a meeting with the principal before permission to re-enter the school is granted.
Research shows that parental involvement in the school supports the emotional, social and academic development of their child. Parents will be required to actively participate in at least 1 program/event per quarter in order to ensure an effective partnership between home and school.
