The Office of Elementary Education (OEE) focuses its efforts on developing school-based leadership in the area of instructional improvement. Support is provided to school administrators on creating and monitoring school improvement plans, implementing the new teacher performance evaluation system, and ensuring that quality assessment practices are used to determine student progress. This office works collaboratively with the Department of Instructional Services and elementary schools to promote individual achievement in a learning environment where equal access is provided for all students.
The mission of Loudoun County Elementary Schools is to create and maintain an environment that ensures a high level of growth and academic achievement for each student as measured by national, state, and district standards.
Enrollment projections and available class space are analyzed in order to prepare a budget proposal for all elementary regular education staffing including administrators, teachers, teacher assistants, and support staff. The OEE prepares and administers the per pupil allotments for elementary instructional materials and postage as a part of the annual School Board budget process.
Kindergarten provides a period of transition between learning in the home or preschool and the more formal learning provided by our elementary schools. Differentiation and hands-on experiences that are developmentally consistent with the way five-year-olds learn best form the first step of a lifetime of learning.
