PowerUP!

School of Distinction AwardTallapoosa County Schools

Principal, Mr. James Aulner

Superintendent, Mr. Joe Windle

Horseshoe Bend School’s PowerUP! program began with the goal to advance the academic growth of its elementary students. Horseshoe Bend looked at student data from the first collection period and grouped students by ability to strategically target how to improve each group. All staff at the school from the P.E. coach to the Assistant Principals were given a small group of students to work with throughout the year. Dedicated time for PowerUP! was set each morning from 7:45 a.m. to 8:15 a.m. The tone for the day was set by playing different songs to “call” students to PowerUP! and students responded happily by singing and dancing as they moved to their groups. The key to the program’s success was evidenced in the fluidity of the groups. When students improved, they moved to a more advanced group. Teachers and students became protective of this time and scheduled appointments around PowerUP! which increased student growth and reduced the school’s chronic attendance rate. This program allowed Horseshoe Bend School to address every student’s strength and/or academic weakness in Math and/or Reading through targeted instruction based on specific need. Summative test data indicated substantial growth from the beginning to the end of the 2018-2019 school year.
