Welcome to Battle Ground Elementary School
We believe all students deserve to be in a place:
- Where every child can say, "My teachers care about me."
- Where every adult is fair, fun, and friendly.
- Where every child feels accepted and important.
- Where every adult treats children with respect, kindness, and dignity.
- Where every child learns and achieves.
- Where every adult uses innovative, inventive, and interesting methods to teach and reach students.
- Where every child develops strong character.
- Where every adult models and expects ethical behavior. At BGE, every child...every adult... Matters.
All adults in our community are living by these core convictions daily and as a result, show the following attitudes and actions:
- Be fair,fun,and friendly.
- Treat children with respect, kindness, and dignity.
- Use innovative, inventive, and interesting methods to teach and reach students.
- Model and expect ethical behavior.
- "My teachers care about me."

The academic goals were established after a thorough analysis of multiple achievement data assessments including the state math assessment, state English / language arts assessment, student mastery of each Indiana Academic Standard, and report card grades. A full list of academic assessments is found in the Force Field Excerpts section of this plan.Other types of data are discussed in the Needs Assessment section of this plan.
The Full Faculty, Community Council (including parent representatives), and Student Body were involved in the analysis of the achievement data.The following questions were addressed during the data analysis.
- How does this data compare to our vision (ideal) data?
- What specific data fields disturb us?
- What specific data fields please us?
- Where do we observe achievement gaps?
Using a consensus based decision-making model, the Full Faculty and Community Council (including parents) first identified a small number of broad academic areas on which the school and community agreed to focus their energy next year. Then, the teachers and Community Council members "drilled down" the data within those areas and identified specific courses or academic standards that, if improved, would impact the broader academic areas. Both the broad academic areas and the specific academic areas are included as goals below. Data targets that the educators and community members felt most strongly about were then provided to the students for their input. Finally, the educators and community members agreed to numerical goals that the school would strive to reach by the end of next school year. These goals fall between the current student data and the vision (ideal) data.When reading the data tables below, please note that the title of each table includes:
- The group of students targeted to meet the goal
- The benchmark that those students will reach
The numbers in the tables reflect baseline data for past years and the target data for future years. The "vision data" represents our ideal data. It is the mission of our school to work toward this ideal.
