The Neighborhood Resource Center at Eisenhower held its grand opening on April 24, 2001. The concept of the Neighborhood Resource Center was created by the Dubuque Community School District Foundation and funded through a grant from the Dubuque Racing Association. The center contains computers, all with Internet access.
The Neighborhood Resource Center is available not only to Eisenhower School families, but anyone in the neighborhood. The format for the center changed in the fall of 2003. It is now open only for workshops, which are open to the public. Entrance is through the door to the left of the main entrance on Spring Valley Rd.
No workshops are scheduled at this time.
School Improvement Team at Eisenhower
The purpose of the School Improvement Team is to involve parents in school-based shared decision-making. Eisenhower parents, staff, and business partners comprise this council. These team members work to implement the goals and objectives of the Comprehensive School Plan.
The goal of school-based shared decision-making is to impact the instructional program in order to improve student achievement. At the same time shared/school based decision-making provides a process to make informed decisions about the future through the involvement of school staff, parents and community leaders.
Decisions are made and changes implemented as part of the school-based shared process need to be in accordance with Board of Education policy, employment contracts, and state and federal law. At the same time, the process should encourage innovation and experimentation when this is feasible and appropriate.
When parents, students, teachers and community members unite to provide quality education for our students, a true spirit of collaboration, trust and shared decision-making provide us with the best ingredients for success.
