Message from Mr. Taylor

Dear Current and Prospective Parents and Students,
Corse is one of five elementary schools in the Burlington Community School District serving students in grades preschool through fifth grade. We, the staff of Corse Elementary, are a learning community of collaboration, opportunities, respect, safe environment, and excellence in education and we are dedicated to the celebration of diversity, achievement, and inquiry for future learning. 

At Corse, we believe that each day is an opportunity to achieve the mission of our school district which is: Inspiring and challenging students through diverse opportunities. We will accomplish this goal through the following:
  • High Expectations
  • Outstanding Educators
  • Unsurpassed Opportunities
  • Nurturing Respect
  • Developing Citizenship
  • Supporting Tolerance

Many of these goals are accomplished or supported through our Positive Behavioral Interventions and Supports (PBIS) program. Through PBIS, we aim to teach student the appropriate behavior through our three basic tenets:
  • Be Respectful
  • Be Responsible
  • Be Safe

We realize that you, the parents and guardians, are your child’s first teacher. As a result, we feel it is important to build a strong relationship of trust with you for the benefit of the children of our building. If, at any time, you have questions or concerns that you would like to discuss with us, please do not hesitate to contact us so that we can understand your concerns and build a stronger trust with you. Your feedback is valuable!
