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 and Science are the content areas our school will be focusing on to improve student achievement.  These areas are targeted to achieve learning gains, increase proficiency and overall school grade.  

Mathematics will continue to be monitored for continued success.

 

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?

This year all students are now required to monitor individual assessment and weekly iReady progress in student STAR binders in the areas of ELA, Science and Mathematics.  Self monitoting and accountability will empower students to take ownership of learning and required on grade level expectations and scores.

 

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

Instrucitonal Coach and classroom teachers will monitor student data input, hold individual data chats with students.  Instrucitonal Coaches will model, plan, guide/support instructional teachers on content.

Teachers will plan weekly with instrucitonal coaches for effective lesson plans and instruciton.  Small group instruction, remediation and reteaching processes will be a weekly focus.  

 

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

Monthly grade level Formative Assessments are given in the areas of ELA, Math and Science.  The data is monitored by Administration, Coaches, Support Team and teachers. 


 

 

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

The school will implement small group instruction with interventions.

 

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)?

Teachers utilize the Florida Standards in all content areas.  Small group, whole group, dfferentiated instruction is provided daily for students. Teachers utilize grade level instructional Focus Calendars to help guide the progression of lessons taught throughout the school year.

 

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

Administration regularly collect/monitor teacher lesson plans.
Administration and Coaches walk-throughs
Data chats/monitoring with teachers provided by Administration and Coaches
 

 

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.

The success in ELA was contributed to instructional focus calendars being modified to meet the instructional needs of the students according to the data.
Deerfield Park Elementary School used the departmentalized model in grades 4-5 so that teachers were able to focus on subject of their expertise.
In Science a new program StemScopes was instituted with fidelity  and departmentalization model was used in 5th grade.
Extended learning opportunitites and small group instruction was implemented in both ELA and Science.
