Bel Air Elementary and Staff Get Incentives for Efforts to Boost Student Success

For the third time Bel Air Elementary and its instructional staff are recipients of Prince William County Public Schools’ annual Teacher Incentive Performance Awards (TIPA) for demonstrating student growth and achievement, quality teaching, and the school environment needed to help children make major educational strides.

Unlike so many awards that focus exclusively on the results of one specific test or measurement, TIPA considers 23 different criteria to assess participating schools on their ability to produce rapid and significant academic progress among children who may start out far behind their peers.

The TIPA project makes certain we offer a climate in which success can take root. It provides targeted professional development to better equip teachers to help students succeed. It promotes the importance of an entire school working together to ensure the growth of all students. TIPA also focuses on factors such as improving student attendance and increasing student and parent satisfaction.

Thanks largely to a federal grant and support of the PWCS School Board, the TIPA recognition means our entire instructional team will receive financial incentives for the work they are doing on behalf of our students. More importantly, it reinforces the importance of that work to closing the achievement gap.

We have more work to do to improve our test scores and to ensure the academic proficiency of each and every student; this recognition confirms that we are on the right path. It means we are delivering on the PWCS commitment to continuous improvement and Providing A World-Class Education to every child.

Bel Air Happy Video
Each marking period the Bel Air Morning News Team films a music video to share with the school. This Marking Period the students wanted to film "Happy" by Pharrell Williams and have Mr. Mitchell star in the video! They felt that the video, and the message, was a perfect fit for Bel Air Elementary School. So, come on and clap along if you feel that happiness is the truth!

Check out the video here.
