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?

The content areas that will be the focus for improving student achievement are English, Math, Science, Social Studies, and Reading.  These areas were chosen because of the school's most recent EOC and FSA assessment results.

 

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?

This year, student performance will be increased by scaling-up the implementation and consistent monitoring of the school-wide literacy plan, improving and monitoring the implementation of the Word of the Day activities and assessments. Teachers will use DOK questions to create common assessments aligned to Florida assessments. The writing plan will be monitored monthly to ensure appropriate feedback and improve writing instruction. 

 

 

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

BEST Practices will be scaled-up through improved and continuous professional development in the area of infusing FSA standards in the content areas and understanding DOK. PLCs and common planning will be collaborative and teachers will utilize data to create common assessments, identify students for remediation, and share best practices.  

 

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

School-level progress monitoring data is collected via FAIR testing, Achieve 3000, 

 

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

To ensure fidelity of students not progressing towards school and district goals, a tracking system is in place. Support staff and guidance counselors track students' grades, attendance, and most importantly collaborate with teachers. For students in special programs such as Exceptional Student Education and English Language Learners, support staff create and follow a indivualized plan to help those students succeed in academics. 

 

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)?

Classroom instruction is accessible to the full range of learners using Universal Designs for Learning by using a variety of teaching strategies. Teaching strategies that are recommended include lessons with differentiation that will meet the learning needs of all students regardless of learning style. Accommodating classroom furniture is also imperative to accommodate students who may have a physical challenge. 

 

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

To ensure Tier 1 standards-based classroom instruction is being implemented properly, staff is given professional development by district staff. General education teachers and coaches are invited to Collaborative Problem Solving Team meetings to correspond with proceedings. Administrators monitor tier 1 classroom based classroom instruction by conducting frequent classroom walkthroughs. 

 

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?

The core text includes but are not limited to Collections series for English, Learning Ally, Achieve 3000, Khan Academy, and PSAT and SAT materials. These are a combination of software and tangible texts to ensure success of all students. 

 

How does your school implement the Broward County Public Schools Social and Emotional Learning Standards to ensure students are developing social and emotional skills?

We have implemented Advancement Via Individual Determination (AVID) in grades 9, 10, and 11 as well as Personalization for Academic and Social Emotional Learning (PASL) in grade 9. Cobra Talk is also an initiative that will be implemented this year to support students social involvement. Each of these programs monitor student social and emotional well being.  

 

In which ways are the five competencies of the Social Emotional Learning explicitly taught and/or integrated school-wide and in the classroom?

Self-Awareness, self-management, responsible decision-making, relationship skills, and social awareness are the five competencies to SEL. At Boyd Anderson we implement various programs to ensure we are meeting students' social emotional learning needs. Cobra Talk is a student led initiative in which identified and trained student leaders meet with students to discuss any concerns students may have. These concerns may be academic, social, or emotional.This process is monitored by a school counselor. A classroom strategy teachers implement is collaborative groups which foresee students to work together to support and reinforce skills.
