Eastbrook will be hosting a Unified Basketball game on February 24th at 6pm.  Admission is free!  Wear your spirit gear, and come ready to cheer on the Panthers!  In the meantime watch the video below featuring some of our Unified Athletes.  Go Panthers!

Please consider taking the survey linked below by March 31, 2019, to provide guidance related to eLearning at Eastbrook Community Schools Corporation.  Currently, ECSC uses eLearning for scheduled professional development opportunities for our staff and scheduled weather make-up days.  The district is assessing the effectiveness and usage of calling eLearning days on the same day due to weather.

4 Star School (1)

Eastbrook High school receive a Four Star rating from the Indiana Department of Education for the 2016-2017 school year.  The award was presented to Eastbrook High School this spring.  This is the first time Eastbrook HS has received the award!  Congratulations to Eastbrook High Students, Teachers, and Staff!

 

Created in 1988 by the Department of Education, the Four Star School Award has been in existence for nearly 30 years and signifies a pursuit of academic excellence among both the students and the administration of a school. To receive a Four Star designation, a school must receive an “A” on the state’s A-F accountability system and have excellent ISTEP+ pass rates.  Adjustments to the criteria for Four Star schools have been made over the years. The current criteria are listed below.

  • A school must have received an “A” school for the 2016-2017 school year
  • A school must have tested at least 95% of students on ISTEP English/Language Arts and Math.
  • 2018 Cohort Combined ECA Pass Percentage (Percent of students who had passed English 10 ECA + Percent of students who had passed Algebra I ECA by end of 10th Grade) must be in the Top 25th Percentile. 
  • 2018 Cohort Percent Passing Both ECA (Percent of students who passed both the English 10 ECA and the Algebra I ECA by the end of their 10th Grade) must be in the Top 25th Percentile 
  • Grade 10 combined ISTEP Pass Percentage (Pass Percentage of English/Language Arts ISTEP + Pass Percentage of Math ISTEP) must be in Top 25th Percentile for each grade tested.

School Safety Message,

As you are probably aware with the recent school tragedy in Parkland, Florida, there has been an increased social awareness on many topics related to school and community safety.  There are many conversations and talking points to attempt to deal with these senseless actions. Of course, opinions differ on how best to proceed. To that end, various organizations nationally have encouraged students to “walk out” of school on two dates, Wednesday, March 14, 2018, and again on Friday, April 20, 2018, as a show of unity, empathy and awareness.

 

Eastbrook Community Schools recognize that there may be students who are aware of these planned walkouts and wish to participate.  After shared discussion with the building administrators throughout the district it is the intent for all schools to conduct “business as usual” on those days with a few potential exceptions.  

 

Students wishing to observe the 17-minute walkout will be permitted to do so under the following conditions.  This will take place from 10:00-10:17 AM. Students will remain within our schools and directed to the school’s cafeteria where the building-level administrators and their designee(s) will monitor the discussion and talking points.  At all times students’ behavior must be above reproach and respectful of all individuals. Students will return to their classrooms following the 17-minute walkout. Additionally, Students are not to leave the supervision of their school buildings or they would be subject to the natural discipline consequences of this behavior.

 

Please contact Superintendent Brett Garrett at 765-664-0624 or bgarrett@eastbrook.k12.in.us if you have any questions or thoughts.  

 

Sincerely,

 

Eastbrook Community Schools
