The Imagine School at the Town Center recently presented its plan for improvement to the Flagler County School Board, at a public meeting. Topping the plan were goals to increase learning gains in mathematics and reading by 9% and 5%, respectively.

“They do so many things at that school,” said Dolores Gonzalez, grandmother to an Imagine School student. “(They) teach to the entire child … It’s everything I could have wanted.”

Gonzalez, who served on a New Jersey school board before working in the Flagler County school system for nearly a decade, also pointed out that Imagine has been using a bucket-based positivity initiative in its facility for more than a year (CLICK HERE to read about Rymfire’s incorporation of the bucket plan).

“It’s a really terrific behavior-modification program for the children,” she said.

From 65% of Imagine School’s student population making learning gains in the FCAT reading exam last year, the school expects to increase that figure to 73%.

In math, it hopes to increase its gains from 56% of the population to 65% (ninth grade scores are excluded from these projections, since they will not be available in 2012).
