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?

Silver Palms Elementary had 68% of students scoring satisfactory or higher on the ELA Florida Standards Assessment (FSA),  73% on the Math FSA, and 55% on the Science FSA. In June 2017-2018 FSA Reading Gains for lowest 25% was 52% and Math Gains for lowest 25% was 52%. Based on these results, we will focus on the area of ELA and math to demonstrate improvement in student achievement, with emphasis on the lowest 25%. 

 

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 Balanced Literacy Framework, with an emphasis on the implementation and improvement of the use of Small Guided Reading instructional practices at all grade levels.
Teachers will implement standards-based mathematics instruction through the use of the Go Math Guidance document and the updated DOE FSA Test Specifications (3-5).  
Additionally, teachers will implement math and reading strategies from all the attended District's trainings.  

 

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

Focused on PLCs in ELA on Small Group Guided Reading (Administering the BAS, forming small groups, identifying teaching target, etc) Focus in Math through District Professional Development on-site and off-site. 

 

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

The school-level progress monitoring data collected are the results from the Benchmark Assessment System administered 3 times a year in grades K-3, iReady Diagnostic for reading and math administered 3 times a year in grades K-5, and the STAR Reading assessment from Renlearn administered quarterly in grades 1-5.    

 

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

Silver Palms ensures the fidelity of students not progressing towards school and district goals by recording Tiered instruction interventions in BASIS and following up with meetings to discuss the outcomes.  

 

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)?

Silver Palms ensures that all classroom instruction is accessible to the full range of learners using Universal Designs for Learning for effective instructional design and delivery by conducting formal and informal observations, conducting data chats, and quarterly collection of lesson plans which reflect the lesson plan checklist criteria.  Instructional practices reflect the use of the WIDA CAN Do descriptors, ESE accommodations and modifications, and Social-Emotional Learners standards.  

 

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

Silver Palms ensures Tier 1 Standards-Based classroom instruction is being implemented properly and effectively by conducting formal and informal observations with the Look Fors in the implementation of the Balanced Literacy Framework and mathematics 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?

ELA K-5 : Journeys, TFK, iReady,  
Mathematics K-5: Go Math Mathematics, iReady
Dual Language Classes K-4: Senderos, IStation
Science K-5: Science A-Z, Stemscopes
Social Studies K-5: Read Aloud collections
