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 evidence by the 2018 FSA and SES Band data, Charles Drew will focus on improving student achievement in the ELA.  The 2018 ELA results indicated that 48% of students in grades 3-5 were proficient, 57% made learning gains and 48% of students for the lowest quartile made 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 specific BEST Practices that Charles Drew Elementary will implement or scale-up to improve teaching and learning in order to increase performance within the SES Band will be PLC and High Quality Instruction.

 

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

The focal point of the PLC's will be to address collaborative planning and effective teaching practices of the standards.

 

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

The specific school-level progress monitoring data that is collected monthly are the Cold Reads, Benchmark Assessment System, Oral Reading Fluency, Checkpoint, and MultiStrand assessments.

 

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

The students are monitored bi-weekly to determine if they are meeting their district and school goals.  If students are not meeting their goals, they are remediated by the classroom teacher and reassess to ensure consistency in meeting their goal.

 

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)?

Teachers are required to complete detailed lesson plans that are differentiated and designed to help students master grade-level esxpecatations/standards. Additionally, team leaders conduct weekly team meetings and review instructional focus calendar, analyze student work samples, and plan specific lessons to address standards to be taught. Daily classroom walkthroughs is one method to enusre classroom instruction is aligned to grade-level standards. In addition, teachers incorportate learning goals and performance scales which require students to take ownership over their learning through seld-monitoring. Lastly, school administrators conduct formal and informal classroom observations to ensure instruction aligns to grade-level Florida standards. 

 

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

The coaches and administrators conduct daily walk-throughs to monitor the implementation of Tier 1 standards-based classroom instruction.  PLC's are centered around Tier 1 standards-based classroom instruction which allows teachers to engage in meaningful conversation about the implementation of the standards.  They also share best practices along with student data to allow input from team members.
