Our Purpose

The Pleasant Elementary School Staff believes that all students can learn to their fullest potential.  The mission of Pleasant Elementary School is to ensure that all students experience success academically, socially, morally, and physically. Pleasant Elementary School staff members utilize current, standards-based curriculum, and instructional strategies/practices to improve academic achievement. Staff members use Character Counts® as a common language to develop students' abilities in demonstrating character and responsibility for themselves and their community. Staff, parents, and students work well together to provide a climate that empowers everyone in an effort to maximize learning.

Character Counts

Pleasant Elementary is a Character Counts® school. We not only teach our students how to show good character, we also practice often. To maximize the results of this program, we have developed a guide (found at the side of the page) to help everyone remember what good character looks like. 

Consistency is key! Our students do a great job of participating in Character Counts® at school. We ask that you also discuss and practice the six pillars of the program at home
 
  • Respect
  • Citizenship
  • Caring
  • Responsibility
  • Fairness
  • Trustworthiness

SPSA/SWP

State law requires that school-level plans for programs funded through the Consolidated Application be consolidated in a Single Plan for Student Achievement (Education Code Section 64001), developed by school site councils with the advice of any applicable school advisory committees. LEA’s allocate NCLB funds to schools through the Consolidated Application for Title I, Part A, Title III (Limited English Proficient), and Title V (Innovative Programs/Parental Choice). LEA’s may elect to allocate other funds to schools for inclusion in school plans. The content of the school plan includes school goals, activities, and expenditures for improving the academic performance of students to the proficient level and above. The plan delineates the actions that are required for program implementation and serves as the school's guide in evaluating progress toward meeting the goals.
 
 

Student Accountability Report Card (SARC)

The purpose of the Student Accountability Report Card (SARC) is to provide parents and the community with important information about each public school. A SARC can be an effective way for a school to report on its progress in achieving goals. The public may also use a SARC to evaluate and compare schools on a variety of indicators. State law requires every school in California to publish a School Accountability Report Card, by February 1 of each year.
