Parents As Partners
Dr. Charles R. Drew College Preparatory Academy’s parent group is called the Parents as Partners (PAP).
Parents As Partners (PAP) is a large group of parents/caregivers who represent the voice of families at Dr. Charles R. Drew CPA. This group makes decisions for fundraisers and other school events. Parent concerns, views, and opinions are also discussed to reach a consensus for future actions.
PAP meets every first (1st) Thursday of each month at 5:30pm.
Excellent Attendance Incentives
Here at Drew, we love to celebrate our scholars! Every 2nd Friday of the month we prepare fresh fruit smoothies for all scholars who have excellent attendance. Excellent Attendance (having 2 or less absences, tardies, or 1 of each accumulative per month), along with the delicious smoothies, scholar who have PERFECT ATTENDANCE (having no tardies or absences in a month) will receive a variety of treats such as pencils, necklaces, bags, and even t-shirts for coming to school on time everyday. Parents we haven’t forgotten about you and all that you do to support your scholar. At the end of each trimester, you can earn t-shirts for getting their scholar to school on time everyday. If scholars are here on time everyday, they learn and remain on grade level. If they are not at school they are not given a chance to learn and fall behind.
School Vision & Executive Summary
As a Bayview/Hunter’s Point School, we understand that our students’ success ultimately depends on the shared responsibility of families, staff, and student scholars. All stakeholders will demonstrate an ongoing commitment to:
We are one of 6 schools located in the Bayview area; although we are a city wide school, many of our students come from our immediate community and the local areas. We are 80% African american, 15% Latino; and 5% Asian and or decline to state. About 75% students receive free and reduced lunch.
We are working to provide the students in our school with a comprehensive elementary school experience. Our goal is to prepare our scholars to attend any middle school in our district and be able to problem solve critically think and take pride in their culture and others.To that end, we are soliciting the support of all three groups that make our school: Families, Staff and Scholars.
We have a vibrant community, dedicated staff, and eager scholars, however we are continuously trying to close the achievement gap. We feel we are moving n the right direction by addressing our children's learning styles, perfecting our instructional practices and continuously working with our families to provide consistency and continuous growth.
