Meet the Principal

Welcome to the Ridgeview Elementary School website. Ridgeview is one of five K-5 elementary schools in Dunlap C.U.S.D. 323. 

Our tradition of academic excellence is founded on the fundamental belief that each child is unique and learns differently. 

Our professional and dedicated staff works to build positive partnerships with the families we serve in order to enhance the learning that takes place in our school.  Our staff strives to improve our instruction each and every day through our weekly work as Professional Learning Communities.  Each Wednesday throughout the year our staff works in grade level teams to evaluate student data and collaborate on making instructional improvements for students. 

Our PLC teams focus their work on three key questions: 

  1. What do we want students to know and be able to do?
  2. How will we know if they have learned?
  3. How will we respond to students who are not learning? 

Assessment data is used to monitor both teaching and learning during our PLC meetings.

Continuous Improvement is the heart and soul of our mission which is to "develop lifelong learners through dedication, hard work, and perseverence."  Through a mindset of grace and accountability, we strive to help each child reach their fullest potential.  We look forward to our work together with you as partners in your child's education. 

Mr. Todd M. Jefferson, Principal
