    INSTRUCTIONAL FOCUS

    WECC primary focus is developing the whole child emotionally and socially by teaching and modeling research based strategies and reinforcing positive interactions between the adult/child and peer/peer in every classroom, every day, for every student – no exception.

    STUDENT FRIENDLY INSTRUCTIONAL FOCUS

    At Willoughby, we teach the heart and the mind.

    SMARTe Goal 

    By the end of the 2021-2022 school year, 100% of Prek 3 and Prek 4 students will meet the Spring Developmental Range Score in the area of Upper-case Letters on the PALS assessment (Prek 4) and Teacher Made Assessment (Prek 3). 

    By the end of the 2021-2022 school year, all students who attended Willoughby ECC from September to June, will show growth with (1) expressing wants and needs, (2) recognizing and expressing emotions, and (3) social communication. Student growth will be measured twice a year in Prek 3 and Prek 4 (Virginia Kindergarten Readiness Program Assessment).
