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

There are a number of intervention strategies that we put in place to improve the academic performance of students identified by the early warning system. We are are able to monitor student progress by using formative assessments, monthly CARE assessments, BAS scores and Iready diagnostic assessments. The students that are illustrating difficulty are receiving support through the Response to Intervention process. Teachers, ESE specialist, Guidance Counselor, ELA Support, Administration, and Parents are members of the RtI team and meets regularly to discuss the strategies that are being implemented to assist the students and share their anecdotal to document the students's progress. The Leveled Literacy Intervention Program is being utilized with grades 1-5 this year to assist with ELA mastery. Students with early warning signs are identified by the school's counselor who also monitors the student's progress and meets with teachers to determine what additional services are needed.

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?

 Peters Elementary instructional leaders will focus on increasing student achievement in ELA. Florida Standard Assessment data derived from school year 2017 -2018 revealed:

  •  3% decrease in ELA proficiency 
  • 60% learning gains in ELA
  • 61% learning gains in ELA with the lower quartile
The overall goal is to show a 10% increase in ELA proficiency. The present ELA proficiency is 56% total points.

 

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?

Identification and utilization of remediation and enrichment strategies aligned to the standards will be scaled up to improve teaching and learning. We will continue to address ELA through PLC's and staff development. Some of the staff development will focus on text complexity, rigor, and small group instruction. 

 

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

Teachers will participate in weekly grade level PLCs. Within those PLCs, teachers will discuss the implementation of research based teaching strategies for remediation and enrichment. Some of these strategies include the implementation of  learning goals & performance scales, high probability elements (Super 7) and effective tier 1 instruction. Teachers will also collaborate on the alignment of rigorous assignments aligned to the rigor of the FSA.
In addition to the scheduled PLC's, teachers will use their planning periods to address standards, resources, tier 1 instruction (best practices).

 

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

As a school we collect all RtI data (academic and behavior), teacher created assessment, Go Math Assessments, CARE, Iready ELA and Math are all collected to ensure we are progress monitoring the students. We collect the data monthly once we facilitate our monthly PLC meetings with grades K-5. 

 

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

We ensure the fidelity of students not progressing towards school and district goals by meeting monthly for PLCs, as well as our RtI meetings. 

 

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)?

We ensure that all classroom instruction is accessible to the full range of learners using the UDL for effective instructional design and delivery by ensuring that all teachers K-5 have a common planning. During this time, the teachers are able to share best practices and consult with one another on the standards that they are currently teaching at the time.  

 

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

We ensure Tier 1 Standards-Based classroom instruction being implemented properly and effectively through the use of classroom walkthroughs from administration and the use of Balanced Literacy. 

 

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?

Grades K-5 are using the Balanced Literacy model and tools. The reading coach monitors the effectiveness of the program, and has created a book room in which teachers are able to check out assigned books and materials to use for classroom instruction.
