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

Based on the results of the progressing monitoring assessments (Benchmark Assessment System and Go Math Chapter Assessments) for grades K-5, we have implemented the following interventions for Math and Reading:
Teachers utilize Wilson Fundations (K-2), Guided Intensive Skill Instruction within small groups,Achieve 3000, NewsELA, Words Their Way booklets, Performance Coach Workbooks in small groups, Journey's Write-In readers, Journey's Literacy Tool Kit, Great Leaps, Phonics for Reading (K-3), Quick Reads, Touch Math, Virtual Manipulatives, Hands-On Lessons, Digital Tools Lessons,  and Moving with Math.

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?

According to the School-Wide Data Analysis, 64% of students in 5th grade scoring at or above level 3 on the Science FCAT. Even though the science scores have slowly increased at total of 13% points over the last 4 years, ERE is still 5th out of 10 in our SES Band in Science Proficiency. With the SAC and grade level teams, we brainstormed possible causes for “Why aren’t more students in 5th grade meeting proficiency in Science?” 

 

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 use the 5E model to teach science utilizing StemScopes as the curriculum - Engage, Explore, Explain, Elaborate, and Evaluate.
Students and teachers will use learning goals and scales to ensure that teachers are teaching to the level of rigor for the standard and helping students take ownership of their learning.

 

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

Teachers in 3-5 grade will participate in monthly Professional Development to target the area of Science. PD will be as follows:
September- Overview of Interdisciplinary Units and Canvas Course for Resources
October- Analysis of Pre-Test for each grade level, how to use data to drive instruction
November- Overview of 5E Model, how to use STEMScopes and Science A-Z
January- Text Complexity Training
February- Analysis of BSA results
 

 

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

1st Quarter- Every grade level K-5 will administer the grade level District created Pre-test by October 1st, 2018 and submit the data to AP.
2nd Quarter- In December, grades 3 and 4 will administer the mid-year test for their grade level and submit the results per child to AP. Each teacher in 3-5 will receive targeted feedback from Principal, AP and Literacy Coach based on the 5E model of instruction. Mini-benchmark assessments will be administered in between each standard to assess mastery.
3rd Quarter- In January, 5th grade will take the BSA for Science and the data will be used to target low standards and form groups for remediatation. 
4th Quarter- Every grade level K-5 will administer the grade level District created Post-test by May 1st and submit the results to the AP.

 

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

The literacy caoch and assistant principal meet with each grade level to help develop and implement a Insturctional Focus Plan that is aligned with the scope and sequence of the FSA standards in ELA, Math, and Science. Teachers are part of School Improvement Committees that meet quarterly and monitor the progress towards the school and district goals based on action steps and data. When students are not progressing, observations are used to identify barriers that may prevent a percentage of students from reaching expectations at Tier 1.

 

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)?

The teachers are trained on UDL annually and given multiple templates for lesson planning that include different approaches to teaching and learning.

 

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

The Literacy Coach and Assistant Principal review and monitor Common Formative Assessments for each curriculum area quarterly to ensure that at least 80% of the grade level is responding to Tier 1 classroom instruction. The Collaborative Problem Solving Team reviews the Tier 1 data as we progress through the Muti-Tiered System of Support model. Teachers get feedback during classroom walkthroughs on their Tier 1 instruction and implementation of Balanced Literacy and the 5E model of instruction

 

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?

K-2- Core Program is Journey's Textbooks; Supplemental Programs: leveled readers, big books, decodable books, Scholastic News and Science Spin Weekly and classroom libraries sorted by Genre and Level; SmartyAnts.com
K-2 Intervention: Wilson Fundations/ Wilson Reading, Words Their Way, and Additional leveled readers and books based on Author, Genre, Topics and Mentor texts are available in our Reading Resource Room.
3-5- Core Program Journey's Textbook. Supplemental Programs: Leveled Readers, Classroom Libraries sorted by Genre, Topic, and Level, Science A-Z, Scholastic News and Science Spin Weekly, readworks.org, NewsELA.com, and Achieve3000.
3-5 Intervention: Visualizing and Verbalizing, Wilson Reading, Phonics for Reading,
