Describe all intervention strategies employed by the school to improve the academic performance of students identified by the early warning system.

Pompano Beach High School employs many means of interventions to assist with early warning indicators within our population.  Personalization for Academic Social-Emotional Learning (PASL) is a freshman mentoring program offering advice, counseling, and daily intervention techniques in one-on-one, small group, and whole class settings.  PASL assists students with the changes from middle to high school settings.  Students work with adminstrators and counselors as well as teachers and peer mentors in order to better equip themselves with academic, social, and emotional tools that will make high school a success.  An important component is peer mentors who assist students not only with the transition to high school, but also throughout the high school years.  Pompano Beach High School utilizes an Eligibility Review Panel (ER) that looks at student Grade Point Averages (GPA) each semester.  Students whose GPA's fall below the 2.5 average are offered two additional semesters of study in order to work with teachers, counselors, and administrators to raise their grades to or above a 2.5 GPA and thus succeed at our school.

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?

The percentage of math students who make learning gains from 2018-2019 will increase from 58% to 60%. The percentage of 9th and 10th grade ELA students who make learning gains from 2018-2019 will increase from 70% to 72%.

 

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?

Best Practices #1 - A focused and authentic professional learning community (QITs).

 

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

By focusing on the CARE cycle at Pompano Beach High School, we expect to see improvement in the quality of our QITs (PLCs).

 

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?

Along with the use of Collections in English 9-12 classes, Pompano Beach High School utilizes the following mediums to ensure students have access to informational text in each content area:
Canvas, Newsela, Vocabulary.com, Khan Academy, News shows in Spanish language and French language, Gilder Lehrman, USA Test Prep, Algebra Nation, Albert IO, Gmetrics.net, ACA Test Prep.com, Code.org, March 2 Success, Edx.com, Phet.com
