GLOBE is driven by these core principles that anchor and guide our community, its work, and to which we aspire as a learning community.
These principles include:
Our educational program structure, school day, and culture are explicitly designed to support the authentic vision and mission of GLOBE. Kindergarten through sixth grade students are placed in low teacher-to-student ratio classes to provide individualized attention, thus enabling teachers to develop deep relationships with each student and family. We provide a vigorous academic program and create an environment for social-emotional growth. We foster leadership and community among students.
To help maintain GLOBE’s high academic standards our procedures are as follows:
Illness lasting more than 3 days requires a doctor’s note to be excused.
Absences must be excused within 48 hours or they will remain unexcused. All excuses are subject to the administrator’s discretion.
Showing up for school has a huge impact on a student’s academic success starting in kindergarten and continuing through high school.
We realize some absences are unavoidable due to health problems or other circumstances. We also know that when students miss too much school— regardless of the reason – it can cause them to fall behind academically. Your child is less likely to succeed if he or she is chronically absent, such as missing 4 days in a quarter (excused or unexcused). Truancy (multiple absences) is considered habitual when a student misses 4 days in a 30 day period or 10 days in a school year.
