BEST PRACTICE #2

An Embedded High Quality RtI Process

RESPONSE TO INTERVENTION (RTI)

Response to Intervention (RtI) uses student academic and behavior information to identify students with learning and behavior needs to guarantee that those in danger of failure and/or retention are receiving assistance and support.

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

We identify struggling students using mutiple assessments. We then provide tailored interventions through the RTI process such as LLI, Phonics for Reading, Write In Readers etc. In addition, all struggling students are invited to Academic Camps ,where they are instructed in a small group setting..Futhermore any student identified by the Early Warrning Indicators is placed on a Progress Monitoring Plan in the affected area. Students are then monitored using the Standards Mastery component of I-Ready, as well as with graphical data in their identified deficiency area. Data chats are held quarterly and RtI meetings are held every 6 weeks for identified students.

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?

* Teachers will implement differentiated centers, along with directed instruction meeting all students with enrichment, instructional and remedial strategies. The Florida State Standards (MAFS AND LAFS) will drive curriculum in all grade levels. In addition,we will use implementation of SIM Quality Assurance for primary literacy and focus on primary literacy through small guided groups.
*  In Reading, we will focus school-wide on our weakest LAFS standards, specifically Integration of Knowledge and Ideas, Craft and Structure, and Key Ideas and Details.
*  In Math we will be focusing on Numbers and Operations/Fractions, and Geometry Thinking. We will target  the lowest quartile in Math in order to form a push in program with our support staff..
*  In Math, primary grades will work on increasing math fluency to better prepare students for the third grade Math FSA, specifically Operations, Geometry Thinking.
* In Science teachers have been trained in the new Science series A-Z and Stem Scopes which have incorporated all Science  Standards.

 

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?

At our school, we are working on improving processes pertaining to RTI and data analysis. With regard to RTI, we are ensuring the prescription fits the ailment, or deficiency, experienced by the student.  Norm-referenced data will be one source collected for progress monitoring, in addition to individualized data, data compared to other struggling students as well as class averages. Data analysis at CCES now contains a holistic approach designed to effect a whole-school sense of accountablity (all students belonging to all staff members).  In essence, during planning times, grade level data is shared amongst the entire grade level to foster best practice sharing and greater alignment between teaching and learning.

 

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

* Teachers will implement differentiated centers, along with directed instruction meeting all students with enrichment, instructional and remedial strategies. The Florida State Standards (MAFS AND LAFS) will drive curriculum in all grade levels. In addition to, implementation of SIM Quality Assurance for primary literacy and focus on primary literacy through small guided groups.
*  In Reading, we will focus school-wide on our weakest LAFS standards, specifically Integration of Knowledge and Ideas, Craft and Structure, and Key Ideas and Details.
*  In Math we will be focusing on Numbers and Operations/Fractions, and Geometry Thinking. We will target on the lowest quartile in Math in order to form a push in program with our support staff..
*  In Math, primary grades will work on increasing math fluency to better prepare students for the third grade Math FSA, specifically Operations, Algebraic Thinking.

 

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

At our school, we are working on improving processes pertaining to RTI and data analysis. With regard to RTI, we are ensuring the prescription fits the ailment, or deficiency, experienced by the student.  Norm-referenced data will be one source collected for progress monitoring, in addition to individualized data, data compared to other struggling students as well as class averages. Data analysis at CCES now contains a holistic approach designed to effect a whole-school sense of accountablity (all students belonging to all staff members).  In essence, during planning times, grade level data is shared amongst the entire grade level to foster best practice sharing and greater alignment between teaching and learning.

 

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

Title One Reasource Teacher' LLI reading pull out
Small Group Instruction
Academic Camps after school.
Nova Tutor

 

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 strive to meet the needs of every student in every classroom. We get to know the students strengths and weaknesses as well as their learning styles. We remove barriers to Tire 1 instruction by using Anchor Charts, Thinking Maps, Oral and Visual teaching modalities. In toher words we teach in different way in order to reach individual learning styles. We also offer choice on how students can demonstrate their knowledge of content taught. we use and expose students to a variety of digital programs.

 

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

* Trainings with RTI Facilitator
* Formals and infomals, walk throughs
*Standards Based Instruction
* Aligned to Instructinal Focus Calendar
* Through Core Process
 

 

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?

*Foundations, LLI grades 1-5, Journeys tool kit, Write In Reader, QUick Reads, 
*Reading Resources Room, Leveled Books, Big Books, Readers Theater, Different Geners, Read Works, DIscovery Education, Learning .com, Newswla, Vocab.com

 

 

Strategies & Activities

Strategies Persons responsible Deadline Professional Development Budget
Academic Camps after school. Dr. Bree Miron/ Michelle Rothacker: Reading Coach/ Linda Westmoreland:Math Coach $3,104.00
Teachers will use BAS data to drive instruction. They will make appropriate goals using the literacy continuum. Question stems will be used to increase comprehension during whole group and guided reading instruction. Guided reading instruction will take place on a daily basis. Struggling students will be identified and instructed in their area of need beyond the 90 minute literacy block. Differentiated centers will be utilized to remediate and enrich concepts and understanding. Teachers, literacy coach, interventionist 6/8/2019 Sub-cadre meetings, monthly literacy meetings - information will be obtained by coach and disseminated to faculty during Leadership PLC, CARE BEST Professional Release Days. Teachers will be provided opportunities to attend County trainings ..
