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 a school Kindergarten through eighth grade creates yearly instructional focus calendars which are aligned to the Florida Standards. Additionaly, classroom teachers uses a variety of resources to teach the Florida Standards. There are monthly curriculum meetings, PLCs, and team planning. Grade levels plan using the district's pacing guides.  Administration conducts ongoing walk-throughs of classrooms using iObservation. Lesson plans are reviewed by administration.

 

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?

As a Title 1 school, the Literacy Department has provided a complete resource room that is equipped with multiple genres of text to service grades K - 5. Additionally, teachers have differentiated classroom libraries which include multiple genres of text.

 

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

For the 2018 - 2019 school year, our focus for improving student achievement is in the area of ELA.  Our focus within ELA is not just improving the amount of students in grades 3-5 that score proficient on the FSA, but as well as improving and shrinking our lowest 25% percentile. When looking specifically at the ELA data, the trend shows that across the board our weakest area comes within the area of integrating knowledge and ideas..  As a leadership team, it was decided that this would be our school wide focus since when looking at the data ELA  took the largest hit in points lost. We believed as a leadership team that having the school wide focus be ELA, it would allow for a variety of learning both at the student level and the professional level as well.

 

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

During the 2018-2019 school year, we will have a variety of different best practices being implemented to improve teaching and learning to increase our ELA data in the SES Band. Throughout the entire school we have implemented the online program Accelerated Reader. Accelerated Reader allows students to read a variety of genres and take small assessments after each.  Accerlerated Reader has become a school - wide competitiion.   Focusing still on the different technology infused programs, school-wide students use I-Ready as a way to not only catch up on standards they are low in, but teachers are also expected to assign specific lessons based on areas the child deomonstrates a deficiency  in reading.  Being able to differentiate allows teachers to assign one standard but on the grade level that is fit for that student. Besides a variety of computer based programs to help increase performance, we are focusing our PLCs for grades 3rd - 5th in ELA. Having teachers conduct their PLC in ELA allows the teachers to see specifically where as a grade level they had theirdefecate and then grade levels are able to collaborate together to find ways to successfully implement those reading  standards and strategies in the classroom for all levels.

 

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

Throughout the school year, there will be a variety of ways in how our BEST practices will be scaled up. First off, teachers will be expected to submit quarterly progress monitoring tests to their lowest 25% in reading through I-Ready. Teachers will additionally have quaterly data chats with their lowest 25% and continue to track their students based on their I-Ready data.

For those who attend the ELA professional development trainings, the leadership team will do walkthroughs to see what strategies and skills have been implemented since the training.

PLC groups will be implemented focusing on a variety of ELA standards. Within the PLCs teachers will be highly encouraged to conduct coaching cycles to support the content and data discussed at the PLCs. An administrator or Coach will attend each PLC in grades 3-5, to monitor that teachers collaborate and share their best practices. 

 

Please complete this section based on 2018-2019 end-of-year results.
Instructional Implications: Discuss the success of specific strategies/activities and provide a rationale as to why those academic improvements occurred as a result of those strategies.

During the 2018 - 2019 school year we were able to provide pull out and push in support to our students who demonstrated weaknesses in the area of ELA or math.  Additionally, students were progress monitored on the results of their standards mastery assessments through iReady.  In addition to the iready progress monitoring, teachers were also provide with common planning time to effectively plan standards -based lessons ensuring they were meeting the needs of all students. Although some grade levels demonstrated growth, our school grade dropped as a whole.  We are now refining our practices based on our identifed gaps.
