La Conner Elementary School Overview
La Conner Elementary is a richly diverse K-5 school located along the Swinomish Channel in Skagit County. We hold high expectations for the forty staff and approximately 265 students in our building because we know that when we expect more we will get more. We want our children to learn in a safe, nurturing environment so that they are allowed to grow into knowledgeable and caring adults. La Conner School District has a strong commitment to small class sizes and high staff-to-student ratio. This year our class sizes are between sixteen and twenty-seven students per classroom with an average class size of 22 students. Additional assistance from paraprofessionals and volunteers allows our students the benefit of much individual and small group assistance to reinforce classroom instruction.
Our staff is exceptional! Communication and collaboration among staff, both at and across grade levels, enhances our ability to serve the individual needs of each student. In addition to the traditional academic offerings, we offer specialist courses in music, band, physical education/health, computers, and library skills taught by professionals in these fields. We are fortunate to have a large number of instructional assistants/paraprofessionals to aid the teachers in the classrooms.
La Conner Elementary proudly maintains other quality programs to benefit our children. Students are served in special education, Learning Assistance, Title I and Title III as needed. Collaboration with the regular classroom teacher is not only encouraged, but is required. After school we offer a Brave's Afterschool Care program on our campus.
For detailed information about our demographics and test scores, please see the School Report Card for OSPI. Parents have the right to review the Highly Qualified status of their child's teachers. All current La Conner SD teachers meet the standard for Highly Qualified teachers as set forth by the Elementary and Secondary Education Act (ESEA) and No Child Left Behind Act of 2001.
