No Excuses at Pomerado Elementary

5/4/2017
We are proud to announce that Pomerado has earned membership in the No Excuses University Network of Schools. 
 
We are proud to announce that Pomerado has earned membership in the No Excuses University Network of Schools.  To earn membership into this prestigious network of “like-minded” schools, we needed to complete an extensive online application and video.  We are very excited to officially be a No Excuses University (NEU) school, and know that it will help guide us in our continuing quest to ensure each and every Wildcat is career and college ready.
As an NEU school, we will continue to focus on the six exceptional systems that give us the framework for educating our students in a way that prepares them for college.  These systems are: Culture of Universal Achievement, Collaboration, Standards Alignment, Assessment, Data Management and Interventions.  At Pomerado, we believe in our students and their abilities, collaborate around this belief, and align our standards as a team.  As we align our standards, we also focus on using meaningful and common assessments and ways to manage our data.  This information allows us to pursue specific and targeted interventions with students in need.  We understand that there are challenges, but we believe our students can be successful and know we have the power to make this dream a reality.  As staff, students and parents make commitments around these systems, we will let no excuse stand in our way!
The NEU network of schools was founded by Damen Lopez in 2004 right here in Poway.  There are now hundreds of schools in 18 states participating in the network and changing the lives of students.  We are proud to be the sixth one here in Poway Unified.  As an NEU school, we will have the support of other schools in the network, and continue to have staff attend institutes to further our learning and develop our systems.  For more information about NEU, please visit their website at www.noexcusesu.com.
Next year we will continue to educate staff, students and parents about the No Excuses mindset, and focus on providing our students with an education that will help prepare them to go to college if they so choose.  For now, we hope you join us in celebrating our admission into this dynamic network.  We can’t wait to see our students soar!
