School History and Profile
Reddick Elementary and Collier Elementary Schools combined in the 1980’s to form Reddick-Collier Elementary, moving from the old Reddick High School building (est. 1924) to its new facility in August.
Reddick-Collier Elementary School believes that all of our students are capable of achieving at high levels in all areas of the curriculum if given the appropriate instruction. Our primary focus is to increase student performance, specifically in reading, writing, and math, as reflected in our School Improvement Plan. Other state goals are addressed as well with the belief that strength in these areas will impact the focus and success of increasing student performance.
Research-based programs and strategies are implemented school-wide with the intent of closing the achievement gap between minority and majority students in this predominantly non-white and socio-economically deprived school. Reddick-Collier faculty and staff are dedicated to meeting students' reading needs and helping them to improve their performance level during an uninterrupted, 90-minute literacy block. Additionally, grade levels collaborate and provide instruction using the district adopted math program. Student mastery in reading and math at Reddick-Collier is assessed weekly and students are moved around in levels to match their performance; this helps monitor progress, and ensure success at the level of placement, as well as facilitate mastery of skills and greater gains in academic proficiency. Similarly, data is regularly collected and analyzed to improve instruction, student placement, and curriculum focus.
The school staff consists of three administrators, 60 instructional staff members and 36 support staff members. 76% of the instructional staff is Majority and 24% are Minority.
A primary academic goal is for students to be proficient in ELA, mathematics, and science as measured by the Florida Standards Assessment (FSA) and Florida Science Assessment. Grade-level teachers work collaboratively with each other and the leadership team to determine specific strategies to meet these goals.
Computers (either desktops or Cromebooks) are in every classroom and Internet access is available to all. In addition, we have two computer labs for student use.
Reddick-Collier Elementary recognizes the critical contribution made by its parents and will work with them to ensure student success. These objectives are a result of a needs assessment, as determined by staff, parent, student surveys, and state assessment scores.
