Describe all intervention strategies employed by the school to improve the academic performance of students identified by the early warning system.

EPLC reviews all retained students and students with prior Tier Plans during the month of August. The RTI Coordinators notifies all teachers of these targeted students.  Teacher are directed to review the plan in BASIS and to continue to implement the plan for 3-4 weeks to determine if the plan continues to be effective or if adjustments need to be made or strategies need to changed.  In addition, the SSW reviews past attendance patterns to determine if a barrier exists.  All students are scheduled for an initial RTI consult during September and October.    Initial data include beginning prerequisite data and BAS assessment which are reviewed to determine if the student is on track to meeting grade level promotion criteria. 

The configuration of the PLC's provided a structured process in which each teacher is required to review their students' data and complete a data template for ELA and Math within each PLC Cycle.  The data templates are submitted to Administration for review.  The data is also discussed during the weekly scheduled Grade Level PLC's.  Each teacher will participate in an individual data chat with the Leadership Team.  Teachers will share their findings including proficiency levels, strengths, weaknesses, trends, common distractors, identify (3) targeted goals, and create an action plan.

Teachers utilize the school-based IFC's that were created by the academic coached to ensure that the targeted standards are taught.  IFC's contain guideline, resources, supplemental activities to assist with the delivery of the content.  Test Specifications are also reviewed to ensure that the standard is taught with fidelity.  Ongoing progress monitoring include teacher-made informal assessment, School City assessments created by coaches, and a grade level comprehensive assessment to determine progress and growth.

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 area of focus for improving student achievement is literacy. These high-quality instructional practices will provide the support necessary to ensure all students become literate and performing on grade level by 3rd grade.  

 

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?

Teachers will implement the steps for Balanced Literacy for Guided Reading:

  • Introduction to the Text: facilitate students’ thinking
  • Reading the Text: reinforce the effective use of strategic actions in reading throughout the text
  • Discussing the Meaning: support students as they think through the text
  • Teaching for Processing Strategies: revisit text to reinforce strategic actions in reading
  • Word Work: instruct word analysis based on students’ needs
  • Extending the Meaning: use writing, drawing, or extended discussion to explore any aspect of understanding the text

 

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

1. Teachers will participate in on-going monthly Professional Development with the Master and Lead TIF Coach.  Teachers will also be registered for guided small group reading and LLI to ensure that all students demonstrating deficiencies are addressed.    

2.  The following strategies will be introduced and modeled for the teacher: scaffolding, effective questioning, implementing multiple performance tasks to check for understanding, and utilization of graphic organizers.  Students will understand the set high expectations for learning in the classroom. 

3. Teachers will participate in on-going Professional Development focused on student progress towards EOY BAS targeted goals.   Student work/performance tasks will be celebrated and displayed, constructive feedback will be provided in alignment with the established rubrics and, students will be provided the opportunity to learn from their peers. 

 

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

We collect and analyze the following school-level progress monitoring data:
BAS data is collected three times per year (beginning, middle, and end of year)
School City assessments for ELA and Math are completed following our school-wide focus calendar and discussed at data chats

 

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

The school ensures that through PLC's and classroom walk throughs classroom instruction is aligned to standards.  Plan books and classroom observations are used as evidence.

 

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)?

If students are not making progress, the RTI process is established. Students in need of intervention will receive interventions from the classroom teacher, Instructional coaches or a resource teacher. Students will be monitored to determine if they are making progress or if the intervention needs to be changed to meet their needs.

 

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

Endeavour Primary ensures that all classroom instruction is implemented properly and effectively by providing consistent coaching and conducting ongoing classroom observations that provides the school with data that supports a student-centered environment.  Curriculum coaches also ensure all classroom instruction is accessible to the full range of learners and resources are provided to assist with supporting teachers with UDL and Personalized Learning.

 

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 school utilizes a variety of programs to meet student needs such as:

Endeavour Primary uses a variety programs at each grade level:
ELA: Leveled readers (Scholastic Bookroom), iReady, LAFS (Curriculum Associates), content area readers, Phonics for Reading, Fundations, Accelerated Reader (AR), LLI (Leveled Literacy Intervention), and Words Their Way.

MATH: Go math, Mountain Math, Touch Math, Number Worlds, and iReady.

There is a book resource room with a plethora of leveled books across all of the genres that is available for the teachers to use with students. The literacy block also has  social studies and science content embedded in the instruction.
