Jefferson County Schools (JCS) had the chance to highlight some of their programs Friday when Aimee Viana, the United States Department of Education Principal Deputy Assistant Secretary for the Office of Elementary and Secondary Education, visited Driswood Elementary School (DES). Ms. Viana received a tour of the school from DES Principal Kelly Osborne and had a chance to observe teachers and students in the classroom.
The tour included a trauma-informed sensory classroom, a first-grade classroom featuring Balanced Literacy, an essential skill initiative in coding, and a fourth-grade gondola STEM Project. Ms. Viana said she was especially interested in the Balanced Literacy program and the EL Summer Camp hosted at Driswood for the last few years. The ten-day language-rich, cultural experience for English learners in elementary grades across the district is held in the summer. The experience focuses on arts integration as a key strategy for developing English language proficiency in a safe, welcoming environment. The summer experience culminates with a musical performance by participants, which family and community members attend.
