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?

Bright Horizons does not fall within an SES band. That being said, we focus on continuous improvement within the areas of curriculum and instructional techniques. These two areas are the focus of our PLCs throughout our school.
 

 

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?

All students staffed in to Bright Horizons School have significant cognitive disabilities and function well below grade level. State curriculum is enhanced with additional suplimentary materials which align with the Alternate Standards (FSAA)

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

Bright Horizons has partnered with BoardMaker On-Line. The collaborative working relationship has enabled this supplimentary curriculum to focus on mastery of the alternative standards. Throughout the year, staff will continue training and implementation of this specific curriculum.
Unique learning is also used for pre/post data on ELA access points.

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

Quarterly data chats and progress monitoring will help identify students in need of additional modifications to ensure progress.

 

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)?

Boardmaker online, Unique Learning, Reading Wonders and supplimental materials that align with the Florida Sunshine State Standards Access Points are used in every classroom. Modifications are on an individualized basis depending on the student's need.

 

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

Students have social/emotional goals according to their Individual Education Plan (IEP)

 

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

Every classroom focuses on the five compentencies as it pertains to the level of their students. Role play, social stories and specific lessons are taught to reinforce social emotional concepts.

 

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

All students have IEPs that address social/emotional targets. Progress monitoring on specific goals is done on a quartlerly basis. Individual concerns are brought to the Leadership Team to consider further strategies and supports if needed.
