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?

As evidenced in the SES Band Data, ELA content area will be the focus for improving student achievement.  ELA Gr 3-5 proficiency of 37% lags behind Mathematics Gr 3-5 proficiency of 57%.

 

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?

Several BEST Practices will be implemented or scaled up to improve teaching and learning. 
1.  Implement Accelerated Reader Gr2-5.  Utilize STAR diagnostic for student reading independent level
2.  Utilize iReady K-5 - Tier 1 Instructions through small group instructions
3.  Implement DBQ Gr 4 & 5  Tier 1 Instructions
4.  Core Curriculum Writing - Professional Development Teacher Training to enhance Tier 1 instructions
 

 

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

1. Professional development training will be provided to teachers in ELA. 
2. Standards Mastery Bullentin Boards will be utilized to showcase student competencies. 
3. Readers Theatre workshop will be utilized to engage students.

 

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

Mid Year BSA Assessments
iReady Diagnostics (Beginning, Mid Year and Final)
 

 

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

Students who are not progressing towards school goals are monitored through the Rti process and/or IEP 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)?

Master Schedule outlines core instructional design.  CARE cyles monitor the delivery and the effectiveness of instructions.  Common Planning time allows for all teachers to plan and design lessons that are equitable within grade level.  Ensuring that DOK levels are identified and student proficiency lookfors are demonstrated.

 

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

Series of professional development workshops are provided to teachers throughout the year.  Admin monitors and documents lesson delivery in Read Aloud and Guided Reading.  Feedback and instuctional support is given when needed.

 

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?

1.  All classrooms have a class library
2.  All classrooms are stock with one to one ratio of core materials.
3.  All classrooms have supplemental instructions to support Tier 2 and Tier 3 small group instructions
4.  All Gr 3-5 classrooms have one to one laptop ratio

 

Please complete this section based on 2018-2019 end-of-year results.
Instructional Implications: Discuss the success of specific strategies/activities and provide a rationale as to why those academic improvements occurred as a result of those strategies.
