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.

1. Administer Benchmark Assessment System to grades K-3 students and grades 4 - 5 scoring levels 1 and 2 on the FSA ELA.
2. Identify students with reading deficiencies. Students reading below grade level according to grade specific  Progress Monitoring Plan (PMP) criteria, which identifies monthly proficiency levels (see BCPS BAS Instructional Level Expectations for Reading)
3. Further analyze BAS Qualitative Data to target specific needs for immediate intensive intervention instruction.

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?

Sandpiper Elementary School is in the SES Band 4 Data. Sandpiper Elementary School will focus on English Language Arts (ELA) and Math for the 2018-19 school year. Sandpiper is focusing on these two areas as a result of dropped scores in both Reading and Math based on last year's Florida Standards Assessment (FSA). A particular area of focus will be on improving the performance of our lowest quartile students to ensure that they are making learning gains. 

 

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?

The BEST Blueprint Practice #1 (Professional Learning Community) and Practice #2 (Response to Intervention process) will be scaled up. Diagnostic assessments and formative assessments are used to drive instruction and progress monitor student and teacher data at all grade levels. Professional Learning Communities will provide teacher support to master and deliver reteach, maintain and enrich strategies to improve student learning. Professional Learning Communities (PLCs) will use vertical planning to address areas in need and strategies.

 

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

The BEST Blueprint Practice #1 (Professional Learning Community) will be scaled up by increasing teacher collaboration and classroom visits to share best practices and resources. Teachers and District Personnel will model research-based strategies. Practice #2 (Response to Intervention process) will be scaled up by using the new BASIS 3.0 to gather data from a variety of sources. Tier 1 core curriculum will be aligned to Florida State Standards. Tier 2 and 3 interventions will be modified based on the updated Struggling Reader and Struggling Math charts. iReady Reading, iReady Math and Reflex Math are additional resources for interventions.

 

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

The 

 

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

The school will ensure the fidelity of students not progressing towards schools and district goals by conducting quarterly data chats with teachers to identify those students as well as provided resources and intervention strategies through the MTSS/RTI process.

 

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

The teachers are provided focus calendars in all content areas aligned to the standards. In addition administration conduct observations, walkthroughs, and data chats with teachers to ensure that classroom instruction is being implemented properly and effectively.

 

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?
