Cordelia Hills Elementary Mission and Core Beliefs
We have worked to develop a positive school community supportive of the academic success of our students. We have an experienced teaching staff, an active Parent-Teacher Association, and positive community support. Our robust and solid curriculum, individualized interventions, technology applications and a positive learning environment all contribute to this goal. Our PTA supports community activities, field trips and classroom projects. We recognize the importance of strong home-school communication and have multiple systems in place to support this.Our instructional focus includes implementation of effective teaching strategies, integration of technology and consistency of instruction within grade levels. Teachers meet routinely to discuss student progress in order provide appropriate modifications/interventions and structure curriculum to support student growth. Programs include: interventions within the school day as determined by student assessments; informal after-school tutoring at upper grades; Life After School (city of Fairfield sponsored Day Care).The Cordelia Hills school community embraces children from a spectrum of cultures. Every child is treated as unique and special. The ethnic composition of the school is White, Filipino, Hispanic, African American, Asian, American Indian, and Pacific Islander. Of these students, 17.2 % are English Learners and 6.3% receive Special Education services. Cordelia Hills also serves Deaf and Hard of Hearing children in a partnership with Solano County Office of Education.
