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?

Professional Learning Communities meet twice a week and unwrap standards, plan curriculum, study data.  Student work is reviewed during  PLC sessions to determine if work is aligned, remediation, and enrichment.

 

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?

Literacy infusion is part of our School-Wide focus and discussion during professional learning community.  Each content area teacher is responsible for introducing informational as supplemental material. During PLCs, the instructional shifts, namely informational text is discussed.   Teachers present best practicess  that will ensure that informational text is infused in their instruction.  This includes various Learnaing management systems, text and genres of material. Student work is part of the discussion as well.

 

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

The following areas will be the focus

ELA, Math, lowest 25% in ELA/Math, Science

 

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

The BEST Practice that Bair will scale-up to improve teaching and learning in order to increase performance within the SES Band is implementing systematic and consistent PLCs in each core content area.  These PLCs are based upon data driven instructional cycles with a focus on adjusting instructional strategies to meet the emerging needs of our students.  The PLCs have been planned with incorporation of the CARE cycle and are part of the school calendar.

 

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

PLCs have been scaled up through the use of a new formative assessment collection tool, NEWsELA, CANVAS and the use of new PLC data analysis forms.  The data collected is analyzed at the classroom level, teacher level, and grade level in each assessed content area.  This year consistent data chats and instructional PLCs are taking place at the beginning of each cycle (unwrapping standards and instructional planning), mid cycle (instructional plan adjustments), and at the end of each cycle (remediation/enrichment plans).  Students in need of additional remediation beyond the traditional scheduled class time are targeted for Extended Learning Opportunities.

 

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)?

In the 2013-2017 school years, Extended Learning Opportunities (ELO) were implemented in Science, Writing, Reading, and Math. Students were selected for ELO based on FCAT, FSA and emerging benchmark data.  Reading and Math proficiency and learning gains for both the lowest quartile and all students increased. Additionally, the staff has developed a deeper understanding of the PLC process, data analysis, and the utilization of data to design instruction, remediation, and enrichment. This has resulted in increased student achievement on internal assessments. The ELO program was changed to Level Up for the 2016-2017 school year. Our schoolwide vocabulary initiative has proven to be successful, and has contributed to our increase in reading and ELA FSA scores. We will continue with the Level Up program.
