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

Parkway offers afterschool, Saturday enrichment and tutoring programs to ensure student progress towards academic profiency. Teachers conduct data chats and collaborative discussions during PLC to ensure the academic success of students not progressing towards academic 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)?

Teachers discuss instruction practices in their PLCs and professional development. Teachers discuss various way to differentiate instuction to meet all students' needs.

 

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?

Students will have access to core content informational texts through a variety of resources including hard copies and online digital resources.  The school will implement an interdisciplinary school-wide literacy plan and provide content area teachers with professional development to ensure that students receive information through a variety of mediums.

 

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

Social Emotional Learning is implemented through the curriculum across core academic disciplines and further supported through the curriculum of after school programs. Teachers are provided with ongoing training and support through SEL professional learning communities and district workshops. SEL is monitored through data collected, feedback from administration, teachers, guidance, support staff and students.

 

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

Social emotional learning is integrated through classroom instruction and through a school-wide social emotional learning plan.  Through the implementation of these initiatives, students are taught skills and strategies on managing emotions and behavior, achieving personal and academic goals, developing social awareness, how to maintain positive relationships and how to demonstrate positive decision-making.  The five competencies are implemented through classroom instruction, through guidance initiatives, peer counseling and through the curricula of the afterschool programs

 

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

Students are provided skills and strategies that will enable them to process complex emotions, managing stress, controlling impulses and how to overcome obstacles in a variety of situations.  Through the SEL curriculum, students learn to set goals and monitor their own progress toward the achievement of personal, behavioral and academic goals.
