Why GLOBE


Passion For Excellence Preparation For LifeTop of Page

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:

  • Maintaining High Academic Expectations
  • Inspiring Student Learning
  • Fostering a Caring Community
  • Connecting with the World
  • Preparing Students for Life

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.

What We BelieveTop of Page

We believe all students can learn and succeed! Our teachers are dedicated and passionate about delivering high quality instruction. We meet our student's diverse academic and emotional needs.  We engage in hand-on, experiential and relevant curriculum consistent with Colorado standards.  We incorporate best practices into our classrooms by using data to drive our instruction.  We differentiate to support all of our students.  We believe all students will advance to meet the challenges of the changing world.  We are dedicated to instilling a sense of responsibility, awareness and respect for others, and a commitment to life-long learning.  This we believe!

CollaborationTop of Page

Collaboration is our whole school community working together for the same goal.  We know that in order to achieve student success we need to meet the learning needs of our staff.  As innovative thinkers, our teachers must work together to combine passion and ideas in reflection and planning time to best meet the needs at GLOBE.

Monthly professional development training, data meetings, and staff meetings bring us together to collaborate to meet the needs of our students.  We also designate time to allow our staff to share with one another best practices from outside professional development and through informal and formal observations.

Service LearningTop of Page

We believe that service is a vital and exciting, hands-on approach to the educational experience at GLOBE. Service learning projects are implemented K-6th grade and are directly connected to academic goals and learning outcomes.  We believe service is a teaching and learning strategy that integrates meaningful community service with instruction and reflection to enrich the learning experience, teach civic responsibility, and strengthen communities locally and globally.

  • Community, Leadership, And, Successful, Service

RtI InformationTop of Page

Response to Instruction:

Response to Instruction(RtI) is a multi-tier approach to the early identification and support of students with learning and behavior needs.  RtI ensures that we provide rich learning opportunities so all students are identified, supported and served within the framework.  We use best practices by providing a solid framework that requires the intervention team to use the six components of RtI to guide decision making at GLOBE

GLOBE Charter School Attendance PolicyTop of Page

Colorado statutes and district policies continue to stress the importance of parent/guardian involvement and responsibility in ensuring their student's educational development.  Furthermore, it is the responsibility of parents/guardian to make sure that the children under their care attend school on a regular basis.  The Colorado Compulsory Attendance Law was created to make sure that students from the age of six to seventeen attend school.  School District 11 and GLOBE Charter School believe that mandatory attendance is an essential component of student achievement and works hard to make sure that attendance is accurately recorded, monitored and reviewed for every student.  The guidelines set forth in this policy apply to all traditional, charter, alternative and online schools within District 11.



 

When a student misses any part of a school day, and grounds for an excuse are not provided, a student becomes truant.  Students who are "skipping" school regularly, or who are absent from school for reasons that do not meet the statutory criteria above, are considered truant from school.  Habitually truant students are those students who miss more than four days of school in a month, or ten days of school in one year.  This truancy greatly impacts a student's achievement.  Students and parents/guardians who violate this policy can be subject to disciplinary action at the school and through the judicial process.


Please refer to the student handbook if you have any questions.
