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

In an effort to improve academic performance of students, we implented summer curriculum planning for all FSA EOC tested areas. Teams of teachers joined together to create content area instructional focus calendars and common assessments during the summer of 2018. Moreover, we revamped our Professional Learning Communities. We have implemented a school-wide plan focused on literacy instructional strategies across all curriculum areas, reorganized our PLC groupings, and started professional development trainings that are aimed at enfusing the CARE Cycle that will increase student engagement within the classrooms.

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?

For the 2018-2019 school year, we will focus on literacy which is encompasses reading and writing. We believe that implementing literacy skills across all curricula areas will lead to an increase student achievement. 40% of the 9th and 10th grade students will score a level 3 or higher on the 2019 FSA ELA assessment.

 

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?

We will implement the R.A.C.E. Literacy Strategy school-wide across all content areas. Utilizing this strategy will aid in giving students additional practice in writing and citing textual evidence that are skills that are assessed on the FSA ELA assessment.

 

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

The administive staff collects common formative assessments, Mock assessment , PSAT, SAT, and ACT data.
 

 

 

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

School-wide iniatives are monitored on an ongoing basis through student R.A.C.E. folders and teacher graded rubrics. 

 

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

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