Mission

The mission of the Elk Township School District is to create a nurturing community of lifelong learners who are socially responsible thinkers and embrace cultural diversity. When the students complete their education in the Elk Township School District, they will have the foundation they need to become productive, self-sufficient, civic minded citizens of the world. The school districts staff, involved parents, and concerned citizens are integral to the accomplishment of this goal.

Clubs

Some of the activities offered at Aura School are Aura School News - Videography/Editing, Aura School Chorus -Grades 4-6, and Aura Leadership Team - Grade 6.

Programs

The Elk Township Board of Education offers a Before & After School Child Care Program to Aura School students . The program operates during the regular school year at Aura Elementary School. There are two sessions available each day. The AM care session is from 7:00 - 8:20 am and the PM care session is from 3:05 - 6:00 pm, Monday through Friday. Coverage is also offered on scheduled early dismissal days. The program does not operate when school is closed.

Supports

There are many support services for our children. These services include speech, physical therapy, and occupational therapy. Aura School has an on-site Child Study Team that evaluates students with learning difficulties. They work closely with the teaching staff to develop Individualized Education Programs.

Health

The School Psychologist, Social Worker, and School Nurse address any emotional and health concerns that our children might encounter. Aura School also has Intervention and Referral Services. The team is comprised of teachers, administration, and support personnel. The committee provides teachers with strategies to help students that have been identified as being at risk for academic, behavioral, or social issues.

Parents

The parents of Aura School are supportive in the education of their children. They are encouraged to participate in Aura Home & School, an organized parent group that takes an active part in the school. They arrange for a majority of our cultural arts activities and fund raising efforts.

School safety

The district has been proactive in providing a safe learning environment. We have several cameras inside and outside of the building. We have a vestibule area as another layer of protection. We have recently installed LobbyGuard, a visitor management system that increases building security by screening all visitors and stopping potential threats at the door. All staff members are required to wear identification badges and carry walkie talkies. Our building has three automated external defibrillators (AED) and staff members are trained in its use. Students and staff participate in a variety of security drills, which are constantly updated, streamlined, and improved on a monthly basis.

More

Aura School provides Pre-K through 6th grade students with a comprehensive academic curriculum, enrichment programs and support services to address the needs and interests of our diverse population. We acknowledge the differences among our children and strive to deliver the best possible education for them. We are committed to differentiated instruction to help meet the varying needs of our children. Our Preschool implements a readiness academic curriculum called "Tools of the Mind". This program focuses on play plans and early intervention writing skills. The Preschool program offers a half-day, full-year program. Aura School continues to build upon its whole school literacy initiative through Accelerated Reader, guided reading and the use of the Scott Foresman literacy program for students in Kindergarten through 6th grade. For those learners who struggle with reading, the district has built in supports in grades K-6 using Read 180, System 44 and iRead. We are committed to technology, equipping all classrooms with access to WiFi, Promethean Boards, and Chromebooks. Grades 4-6, students receive a Chromebook through a 1:1 initiative that continues to the secondary district''s 1:1 initiative.
