Wheatley’s 2020-21 Budget Presentation

This past Wednesday, I had the pleasure of presenting Wheatley’s proposed budget for the 2020-21 school year. We are fortunate to be able to continue to provide a broad offering of courses and programs for our students. This happens because of the ongoing support of our community, our Board of Education and our Superintendent of Schools.

Some of our initiative for next year include:

STEM

  • ALEKS computer-guided adaptive program to be used in mathematics classes
  • TopoBox augmented reality tool for science

Real World Learning

  • Virtual Enterprise program in Business
  • Environmental center
  • Real-World Learning portfolio for Social Studies Director

Social and Emotional Learning

  • Part-time substance abuse and prevention counselor
  • Ongoing work with Responsive Classroom initiative
  • Restorative practices staff development
  • Strength and conditioning coach for fitness center

Program Initiatives and Enhancements

  • Redesign of 8th-grade technology program to enable increased access to art, music and additional elective offerings
