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?

As evidenced in the SES Band Data, our goal is to increase from 50% to 60% (10%)  in 10th grade Reading FSA by May, 2019. We will implement online programs such as USA Testprep and Khan Academy in addition to data-enhanced grade level/subject area PLCs, lesson studies, and PD.  This will be monitored by Mrs. Brown (English/Reading AP), Mrs. Brodie (Dept. Head), and Anita Parsoton (Literacy Coach). We will be collecting and reviewing data from the online programs, collecting data and strategies using the CARE process monthly with our PLCs and teachers will attend scheduled PD meetings during their planning period. The Social Studies Department will also support the English Department by implementing NewsELA monthly.   Social Studies teachers will focus on the English standard students are weakest in based on data from common assessments.

 

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?

Data-enhanced and Authentic PLCs will be scaled up to improve teaching and learning in order to increase performance in our SES band.

 

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

PLSs for 9th – 12th grade teachers will meet once a month on scheduled Professional Study Days to work collaboratively on lesson and activities that will enhance student performance in all areas of academia.  All PLCs are data-driven and reflect of teaching practices based on outcomes vs. intended outcomes. Additionally, all teachers have a common planning period based on their content area. This provides additional time for teachers to engage in collaborative discussions to created engaging lessons and activities for students.

 

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

Teachers in all departments give common assessments monthly and analyze the data during PLCs.  The Biology teachers use USA Test Prep and Data Nuggets. The English and Social Studies Department uses NewsELA monthly and gather and discuss data monthly.

 

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

In math, biology, and English Coral Springs High School provides push in and pull out services by the Reading Coach, math teachers, and biology teachers.  There are also after school tutoring offered for each subject. These students are monitored through their math, English, or biology class monthly through common assessments.  Students and teachers should see an increase in student achievement.

 

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

In math, biology, and English Coral Springs High School provides push in and pull out services by the Reading Coach, math teachers, and biology teachers.  There are also after school tutoring offered for each subject. These students are monitored through their math, English, or biology class monthly through common assessments.  Students and teachers should see an increase in student achievement.

 

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?

All students are in an English class tht uses Collections series.  Students recieve textbooks and can also access the material online.   Students also have access to NewsELA  (online) through Science and Social Studies classes.
