BEST PRACTICE #4

Scaling Up BEST Practices

CONTINUOUS IMPROVEMENT

School improvement is based on a continuous improvement model, using research-based accepted best practices, which align with student achievement needs, insure student progress, and may be revised when appropriate.

 

Goals

As evidenced in the SES Band Data, which content area(s) will be the focus for improving student achievement and why was this area chosen?

ELA will be the focus for improving student achievement.  Based on last year's Florida Standards Assessment results, we decreased in reading proficiency; therefore, we were mandated to provide our students with an additional hour of reading instruction during the school day.  .  

 

What specific BEST Practice(s) will be implemented or scaled-up to improve teaching and learning in order to increase performance within the SES Band?

PLCs and professional development  will be implemented or scaled-up to imporve teaching and learning in order to increase performance within the SES band.

 

Describe in detail how the BEST Practice(s) will be scaled-up.

PLC's will focus on data analysis, specifically in regards to ELA.  
A book study using the book, "Great Habits, Great Readers", a comprehensive balanced literacy reading program that supports the development of proficient and engaged readers, will be used by the teachers during PLC's. We will be increasing the use of Thinking Maps through inter-disciplinary curriculum.

 

What specific school-level progress monitoring data is collected and how often?

OPE is using School City's Show What You Know checkpoints and iReady diagnostics to collect data throughout the school year. iReady diagnostics are given in the fall, winter and spring. 

 

How does the school ensure the fidelity of students not progressing towards school and district goals?

Through remediation, small group instruction, and data chats, the school is able to ensure the fidelity of students not progressing towards school and sidstrict goals.

 

How does the school ensure that all classroom instruction is accessible to the full range of learners using Universal Designs for Learning (UDL) for effective instructional design (planning) and delivery (teaching)?

OPE ensures this by conducting classroom observations, providing opportunities for teachers to participate in PLCs, and making sure teachers are guided and supported by instructional coaches.  This happens through  common planning and by using the educational framework that guides the development of flexible learning evironments that accommodates the learning differneces of all students.

 

How does the school ensure Tier 1 Standards-Based classroom instruction is being implemented properly and effectively?

The school ensure Tier 1 Standards-Based classrrom instruciton is being implemented properly and effectively through classroom walkthroughs and observations.

 

Describe texts used for core, supplemental, and intervention programs at each grade level. How does the school ensure students have access to a balance of literary and informational text in a variety of mediums?

Core:  Balance Literacy is used for grades K-5 utilizing leveled readers.
Supplemental: iReady is used for grades K-5
Intervention: Curriculum Associates:  Phonics for Reading and Rewards is used for grades K-5

OPE has a resource room with multi leveled books which is accessible to all teachers to ensure they are planning using a variety of texts/genres. The use of technology (recodex, document cameras, and computers) also provides the teachers and students with accessibilty  to a balance of literacy and informational texts in a variety of mediums. 

 

How does your school implement the Broward County Public Schools Social and Emotional Learning Standards to ensure students are developing social and emotional skills?

OPE implements the SEL standards daily by welcoming our students to campus and to classrooms with morning greetings.Various classrooms implement morning meetings, sing a hello song in different languages, and we implement the Start With Hello, Sandy Hook Promise initiative. 

 

In which ways are the five competencies of the Social Emotional Learning explicitly taught and/or integrated school-wide and in the classroom?

Self Awareness/Self Management-utilize mindfulness techniques, Go Noodle, Brain Breaks, Frustration Stations, Character Education, and Class Dojo self management activities. 

Social Awareness-Implementing Sanford Harmony Curriculum: utilizing get to know you activities such as Meet Up and Buddy Up, Start with Hello songs, provide opportunities for students to debate and teach active listening skills and perspective taking, implementing SAVE Promise Club.

Responsible Decision Making-utilize literature and non-fction text such as Newsela and Tumble Books to promote responsible behavior, Teaching THINK(true, helpful, inspiring, necessary, kind), implement Be The One Anti-Bullying Program, and implement Think B4 You Post steps

Relationship Skills-OPAL Girls and MODEL Boys Club to build leadership skills and positive relationships


 

 

How does your school-wide policy and practices support the social emotional learning for students?

OPE incorporates a positive behavior support model to encourage our school's expecations. We utilize CHAMPS to promote structured and positive classroom management.
