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

Early Warning Systems
Reading and Math interventions/strategies vary from grade-level to grade-level, based on analysis of diagnostic tests, and/or pre-identified as indicators of students in need, such as the District-level criteria outlined in Policy 6000.1, classroom observations, and other classroom assessments. Students with high-risk indicators are monitored through the RtI process in order to address both academic and social-emotional needs.
 
Strategies:
Differentiated instruction; additional ½ hour of reading intervention instruction outside of literacy instruction block; peer tutoring; pull-out small groups with literacy coaches; after-school book club; academic camps in both reading and math; high school Book Buddies; Latinos in Action Mentor Group; Summer Reading Incentive Program; Home access to reading and math technology
 
Reading:
K, Grade 1, Grade 2: Fundations
Grade 3 - Wilson, Phonics for Reading, Super QAR, Quick Reads, Journeys Write-In Readers
Grade 4-5 – Journeys Write In Readers, Quick Reads, Just Words, Wilson, REWARDS
 
Math:
Kindergarten- hands-on activities based on student needs
Grade 1-5 – Go Math Reteach, Go Math Intensive, Go Math Strategic Lessons; Touch Math

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?

Math will be the focus for the 2018-2019 school year. Our data in math indicates there are achievement gaps and conceptual understanding. 

 

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?

Math PLCs.

 

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

Math PLCs at grade levels 3-5 with a focus on Florida standards instruction and fluency skills. Monitoring of math data and student work samples. 

 

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

Interim assessment data is collected quarterly. 
BSA data is collected annually.
FSA data is collected annually. 

 

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

Through RTI/MTSS process. 

 

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 plan cross-curricular and with similar content area teachers to ensure all classroom instruction is accessible to all learners. 

 

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

Progress monitoring. Walk-throughs. Informal evaluations. Data analysis. 

 

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?

Both information and literary texts are used in math instruction, when available. Teachers access Destiny, NewsELA, etc. 

 

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

Faculty and staff implement the Power of 3 with students in all areas of the school campus. 

 

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

Faculty and staff implement the Power of 3 with students in all areas of the school campus. The Power of 3 helps students to increase self-awareness and self-management skills to achieve school and life success, and to establish and maintain positive relationships.

 

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

  • Unity Day (anti-bullying campaign)
  • Safety Patrol
  • Best Buddies
  • Spirit Days
