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

ELA
We will use the Fountas & Pinnell Benchmark Assessment System (BAS) to assess students and track their growth. We will use the Fountas & Pinnell Leveled Literacy Intervention (LLI) as Tier 3 instruction to those students who scored the lowest on the BAS in each class. We will implement the Saxon Phonics and Spelling program across the grades since we have seen a neglect in Phonics over the years. We will implement more manipulatives for students to build words while in small reading group. We will continue to use i-Ready in all grades to help boost instruction. Teachers will implement and model with the Rehearsal Reading books as a whole group guided reading lesson so students will build upon their fluency, vocabulary, and comprehension skills. Detailed pacing guide will be provided with prompting questions, standards, and specific lessons to teach

Math
As a morning routine to help build computation fluency, students will complete their ADD Math worksheets (teachers will review with students). Before Math, students will complete their Math for Today worksheet and then review with teacher. Detailed pacing guide will be provided with math page numbers, standards, extra lessons, and resources to use with each lesson. Students will continue to use i-Ready to build upon math skills. Reflex Math will be incorporated into technology time to help with math fluency.

Attendance
Students who come to school daily will be acknowledged at the Award Ceremony and will receive a Perfect Attendance Certificate. Those students who display a pattern of tardiness or who miss a lot of days will be identified and their parents will be contacted. The social worker will make home visits and provide the families with strategies, resources, and assistance to help prevent chronic absences and tardies.

Suspensions
Students who get suspended will be observed and will be tracked if the suspensions are repetitive. Students who display inappropriate behaviors consistently will be discussed during RtI. Behavior plans will be created and monitored for students who misbehave often. Meetings will be scheduled with parents to help create a solution. Incentives will be provided to students who make a change in their behaviors. The social worker and guidance counselor will be involved in helping to decrease negative behaviors and suspensions.
