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

Students that are identified under the early warning system will be identified by their teacher. The teacher will enter Tier 1 strategies in BASIS for each child. If they feel as though their tier 1 instruction is not adequate, teachers will create a referral to RTI. Once they create a referral, the RTI team will develop research based stratgies for each child and mointor as needed.

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?

We are focussing on guided reading mastery with teaching targets and small group instruction.  This year we will delve into shared/modeled/ interactive reading to increase our reading proficiency. 

 

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?

Scaling up process continues with guided reading.  Our expectation is to have 100% of staff master the use of the continuum and BAS analysis.  We will add the interactive read alooud for 18-19.

 

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

Teachers will have opportunity for training, and discussion in PLC.  Teachers will share best practices especially for intervention groups and scheduling.

Iobservation data results will be collected monthly and shared with teachers individually.

Students not meeting goals are serviced by many means.

SCholasitic leveled libraries and classroom libraries as well as intervention tools of LLI, Journeys Tool kit, phonics for reading, wilson, fundations.

 

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

Our guidance counselor assists teachers by providing lessons for classrooms.  Teachers are also trainied to provide lessons on their own.  We will add video lessons on demand for 18-19 school year.

 

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

Identify and Manage personal behavior.  Respect yourself, respect others, respect the environment.

 

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

All teachers are trainied in the SEL strategies and recognizing areas of SEL needs.  All teachers are trained in recognizing student behaviors that indicate areas of need to report to RtI or guidance.  Lessons are deigned for groups and classes alike.

We use listeners, Watch Dogs, club leaders (16 clubs on campus), and peer mediators as mentors.
