Mission Statement:

The Burbank Visual, Performing, and Folk Arts Magnet experience provides our students with an arts-based academic program that reflects America’s cultural richness. Music, visual arts, performing arts, and drama are integrated into the standards-based curriculum incorporating parent and community partnerships, technologically enhanced instruction, and frequent arts lessons. Our Magnet program is taught by resident specialists, visiting artists, and classroom teachers. Through this interchange, our students gain an appreciation of the Arts.

Baseline Data and Resources:

Burbank Elementary School is a beautiful traditional school with a large front lawn and porch. The layout of the school allows for the campus to be secured while students are on campus. All parents and visitors must enter the school office to receive a visitor or volunteer badge.  

Safety of students and staff is a primary concern at Burbank Elementary.  The students are supervised by qualified school personnel for 40 minutes before school and 15 minutes after school. The school provides two afterschool programs: EDP and EXTRA. All personnel are trained in emergency procedures.  Fire, earthquake, lockdown and active shooter drills are conducted regularly throughout the school year.

The School Safety Committee reviews site safety concerns and assists with the identification of items needing repair or creating a possible hazard.  Emergency supplies are inventoried and reordered each year.

Two custodians ensure that classrooms, restrooms and campus grounds are kept clean and safe.  All electrical, plumbing, roofing and fixtures are in good working condition and meet applicable building and government code requirements.  A scheduled maintenance program is administered by ABC Unified School District to ensure that all classroom and facility repairs are maintained to a degree of adequacy that provides for good learning.

Areas Needing Change:

The safety committee recommends the emergency medical supplies be reviewed by the nurse. Any supplies which need to be replaced will be ordered. After the medical supply review is completed this year. The supplies will be reviewed annually.

All teachers will bring their emergency backpacks to a staff meeting to be sure each backpack has the basic supplies necessary. This review will also be placed on the annual schedule.

Staff needs to decide how to fund new supplies that need updating.

Portable Potties need to be inventoried and new ones replaced if needed.

The safety committee will access exit points on campus and evacuation point off campus.

Emergency Backpack made for office to give  Incident Commander in the event of an emergency on campus.  This should include but not limited to 2 master keys, gate keys, map of the school, building numbers, access numbers, list of special need children and their room numbers, class roster, phone numbers,
