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.

Interventions include team teaching for 9th, 10th, and 11th grade students identified as academically at risk. Tutoring is hold after school by teachers and the National Honor Society three days a week. Spartan Academy is on saturdays for remediation and enrichment activities for EOC and AP courses. Literacy and Math coaches provide support for teachers through the PLC meetings and classroom assistance. Support facilitators collaborate with teachers in the classroom and provide pullout sessions. Students who have not passed the FSA or Algebra EOC are placed in college readiness courses.

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 and FSA results, a school-wide Mathematics program is being implemented focusing on key Algebra standards. This area has been chosen due to only 33% of our 9th and 10th grade stduents scoring proficient on the 2018 Algebra EOC.

 

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?

Students will participate in a new inititive, Marvelous Math Mondays to practice key math standards. Student will log onto Khan Academy and College Board accounts to practice on their own individualized study plan based on their performance on the PSAT. There is free tutoring on campus Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday led by the National Honor Society and Spartan Academy with teachers available for all EOC and FSA subjects. Our Village Days is held in Study Hall each quarter to review grades and graduation requirements.  Students are instructed on how to log in to Naviance and conduct personal inventories to align college and careers that match their interest.  Teachers are being employed during planning periods to provide standard driven remediation sessions to help students maximize their content exposure and mastery.

 

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

The Leadership Team meets with teachers to ensure the standard alignment is being implemented. Teachers participate in lesson studies and performance task reviews. Teachers hold data chats/accountable talks with students in their Study Hall classes. The school has developed a College and Career Development program and a PSAT/SAT focus. 
 

 

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

Common Assessment, U.S.A. Test Prep, Energy Points from Khan Academy, and Pinnacle Reports on A bi-weekly Basis to drive PLC discussion.

 

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

The Administrative Team and Curriculum Leaders discusses the Curriculum, Assessment, Remediation and Enrichment (CARE) process, strategies, and initiaves for each department as well as the current number of students not meeting proficiency within the target areas at bi-weekly Curriculum Leadership Team meetings. After the analysis of summative data, the team identifies students needing additional support to refer to the RtI process. Teachers, Guidance Counselors, and the Administrative Team  continously monitor students' progress by engaging in data chats with students. 


 

 

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)?

Our classes are all inclusive and bring a richness of ESE and ELL students whose needs must be met. Implementing strategies to serve the needs of these students helps the entire class as others not meeting that criteria can benefit from those supports.  Instructional Coaches and Administrators monitor closely that the presentation of new information is done in a variety of formats to include the various learning styles.  Teachers are asked to provide students with multiple means of expression throughout the lesson and to afford them the opportunity to engage in a variety of ways. Evidence of this is seen in teacher lesson observations, lesson plans, and PLC best practices share sessions.



 

 

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

School administrators conduct classroom walkthroughs and Curriculum Leadership Summits where the entire school is evaluated on implementation of Tier-1 Standards Based classroom instruction.   Teachers show evidence of this in their lesson plans, board configuration, lesson delivery, and student work samples.   Standard based lesson objectives drive instruction while learning scales are used with fidelity by teachers and students to gage their progress.  Teachers utilize standard based task-performance indicators to assess students mastery of the standards.

 

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 core academic classes as well as all tested subject areas use computers for various programs. We have a contract with the Sun-Sentinel for daily newspapers. Teachers use collaborative and project based learning in their classrooms. Our Media Specialist makes rotations with different classes for media resources as well as allowing students to check out novels, periodicals, and other books.  Students are taught on how to access and use the virtual library resources available for ebooks and pre-filtered research databases. Guest speakers present during Study Hall for college and career opportunities.
