As a small neighborhood school, Payne's staff is committed to helping our students achieve academically and in life. We offer technology opportunities through the use of computers in the classrooms and a new mobile wireless laptop lab utilized for 3rd, 4th and 5th grade students. Our media center offers a computer lab for student research, writing and presentations. Payne offers special education programs and the English for Speakers of Other Languages program. A before-and after-school program is also available.
Teachers communicate student performance to parents. Two conferences are formal parent-teacher formats. The Payne staff works closely with parents and family members to help ensure success for the students. Community involvement is also important to Payne students and staff. United Way, RIF, Red Ribbon Week, Fire Prevention Week, Arts Partner Presentations, family nights, Site Council, and Parent Organization are all ways to become involved.
