THE WORK OF OUR STRATEGIC PLAN 2018-2023

West Meade Early Education Center

  • When each school began to plan their important work based on AACPS’s 2018-2023 Strategic Plan during the spring of 2018, school teams reflected on their school culture, their community, and the key factors contributing to student achievement.  Each school was then asked to consider which Strategic Plan Indicators would have the greatest positive impact for their students. School leadership teams selected indicators and developed plans to focus and guide their efforts.  Please come with us on our journey as we describe why, what, and how we do our work to serve our students and families of our school.

West Meade Early Education Center's School Story

  • Located on the Fort George G. Meade Army Installation (Ft. Meade)  our story began in 1964 when our school first opened its doors to students in Early Childhood Intervention (ECI) through grade 5. In 2011, the school program went through a transition and was re-structured. As a result, students in grades 1 - 5  were transferred to another school, and a new program was established  to serve only Pre-kindergarten, Kindergarten, and ECI learners with special needs such as speech and language, social-emotional development, or cognition.  That same year, the school was renamed West Meade Early Education Center (EEC).  

    West Meade EEC is a community school and home to 286 students.  Approximately 14% of our students have disabilities ranging from speech to autism to social-emotional or other developmental delays.  Two kindergarten classes are co-taught where special education students benefit from being enrolled in a class led by a general educator and a special educator working in tandem. Our focus has been, and remains, early literacy and reading proficiency with our ECI, Pre-K, and Kindergarten students from the highly mobile military families housed within the Ft. Meade complex.

    West Meade EEC students are provided rigorous instruction and learning opportunities that are engaging, enlightening and empowering. Our curriculum includes Reading, Math, Science, Social Studies, Art, Music, Physical Education, Computer Lab, and Media. In  addition, West Meade EEC is an Enhancing, Elementary, Excellence (Triple-E) school with a STEM in Society theme. OurTriple-E STEM program was designed to bolster creativity and encourage students to become innovators and inventors, and the weekly classes provide a fun environment that promotes learning through trial and error. West Meade EEC is also an Advancement Via Individual Determination (AVID) school,  with a goal and purpose to close the achievement gap by preparing all students for college readiness. Our AVID program provides structures and teaching strategies which help to establish a sound foundation for increasing student academic success. 

    Visitors immediately recognize that our school environment is warm and welcoming, with a staff  that exudes a strong commitment to working with the youngest of learners. Our students learn and achieve every single day, and they can be observed in our classrooms collaborating and engaging in problem solving activities. The West Meade EEC community is appreciative of our teachers; and community members form strong relationships and engage in supportive measures, such as volunteering  for various activities,  which cement the bond between home and school.
