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

As related to the early warning indicators, 8% of students in 6th grade, 10% of students in 7th grade, and 6% of students in eighth grade are currently a level 1 in ELA. For Math, 9% of students are 6th grade students are level one, 9% of students in 7th grade are level one, and 9% of stduents in 8th grade are level one. The following intervention strategies are in place for these students:z

  • Student data chat forms (baseline CFA, mini-CFAs, & end-of-year CFA/FSA) to give immediate and relevant feedback to students on their reading, writing, and math proficiency broken down by reporting category.
  • LAFS iRready to provide differentiated instruction for non-fiction reading and short written response writing. 
  • Accelerated Reader 360 motivates reading practice with differentiated reading practice goals and personalized Discovery Bookshelves. Students choose a book, read it, and take a short comprehension quiz.
  • Task cards give students question stems that align to the Florida Standards and breaks down the standards into measureable learning goals.
  • Compass Learning pinpoints each student’s areas of need and automatically generates an individualized learning path to facilitate personalized learning for reading, writing, science, and math content.
  • Inside National Geographic allows students to experience the world in the classroom with authentic, multicultural literature and National Geographic informational texts.
  • Tenmarks is a content-driven technology strategy that focuses on 3 core areas.  Students are provided with an integrated model of curriculum and instruction, supported by technology and 1:1 personalization.
  • Destination Math provides effective, individualized, standards-based math instruction and assessment.
  • Gizmos allows students to go beyond memorizing facts, formulas and mnemonics, and instead enables students to develop a deep conceptual understanding of underlying principles.
  • Academic Intervention Program (AIP) provides students with non-instructional time to work on prescribed lessons and materials with an assigned teacher designed for Course Recovery/Course Remediation until their completion.
  • Response-to-Intervention (RtI) provides recommended students with academic difficulties with intense interventions that are documented by the classroom teacher.

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?

In relation to our SES Band Data, the areas we are focusing on for improving student achievement are in Reading and Math. As evidenced by the 2018 ELA Florida Standards Assessment, 8% of sixth grade students, 10% of seventh grade students, and 6% of eighth grade students scored a level one. As evidenced by the 2018 Math Florida Standards Assessment, 9% of sixth grade students, 9% of seventh grade students, and 9% of eighth grade students scored a level one. As evidenced by the 2018 Civics End-of-Course examination, 5% of seventh grade students scored a level one.

 

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?

Silver Trail Middle has a high level deliberate focus on creating authentic Professional Learning Communities (PLCs) that utilize common formative assessments to drive instruction, remediate areas of weakness, and enrich areas of strength to increase student performance with our SES band.

 

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

Our PLC model incorporates the CARE (Curriculum, assessment, remediation, enrichment) cycle in which teachers utilize student data to drive instruction. Teachers meet by department and grade level once per week, to analyze their common formative assessment data (baseline, mini, and end-of-year) for areas of strength and weakness. Based on the results, the teachers create an action plan of how they will remediate and enrich their students on those chosen standards. Teachers then discuss student work and share best results.

 

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?

Silver Trail Middle School ensures students have access to informational text for each content area by focusing on differentiation, in order to reach student achievement. The use of informational text is used across curriculum. Furthermore, we have allocated resources and learning opportunities for students to obtain the necessary tools required for success. Alongside ELA standards, STMS teachers follow an Instructional Focus Calendar that is aligned to the Florida Standards Assessment. This allows teachers to implement informational text in there specific content areas. Also, teachers use a variety of mediums such as Compass Odyssey, Collections, LAFS iReady, ReadWorks, to assist students in understanding the use of informational text in the different content areas.
