Colonial will be one of the District pilot schools for i-Ready.  iReady was built for the Common Core.  It provides the data-driven insights that classroom teachers need to determine exactly where to focus instructional time to ensure all students are on track to meet rigorous expectations and to succeed.

Colonial Elementary is a Positive Behavior Support (PBS) school.  PBS provides a positive and effective alternative to the traditional methods of discipline.  PBS methods are researched-based and proven to significantly reduce the occurrence of problem behaviors in the school, resulting in a more positive school climate and increased academic performance.  PBS advocates the use of positive behavior interventions and school-based disciplinary strategies that reduce or eliminate the need to use suspension and expulsion as disciplinary options.
