Collaboration at Clovis Point Elementary School

In 2020, then Clovis Point Intermediate in East Wenatchee was selected as a demonstration site. Clovis highlighted the inclusionary practices of assistive technology, co-teaching, collaboration, and modified grading rubrics. In 2021, Clovis Point transitioned to an elementary school, complete with a fully inclusive playground while still prioritizing inclusion. 

In the past two years, the Clovis Point team has focused on building its new community, reimagining inclusive education in their new elementary context and still building on the strengths they harnessed as an intermediate school. As an elementary school, Clovis Point is early in its new inclusive journey – but has a strong base to build upon. Collaboration, collective ownership of student learning, and creating a sense of belonging for all students and staff is apparent as one walks through the school and engages with students and educators. Principal, Amy Dorey states, “We continue to use some of the same inclusionary practices as Clovis kept 5th and 6th-grade students – while looking into how to add more for the younger grades. We have learned how important it is to support teachers and students along their learning journey. My hope is that ALL staff and students feel that they belong at Clovis and that we are a community of learners who support and care for each other.”
