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?

Our school grade went down last year becasue of our learning gains. Math, in particular, took the biggest hit. Therefore, we wil focus on Math, while still continuing to close the gap in phonics and vocabulary.

 

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?

PLC's and RtI

 

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

Our PLC's will continue to focus on data to drive instruction to ensure that a strong Tier 1 standards-based instruction is being implemented. In addition, our RtI students will receive reserach-based interventions in the area of math fluency to strengthen our students basic math skills

 

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

Admin reviews Spiral Math weekly, in addition to reviewing iReady Math diagnostic and Standards-Mastery assessments. In addition, we will be implementing weekly fluency speed drills to increase student stamina and muscle memory.

 

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

Students will receive additional support and small-group instruction, in addition to weekly fluency speed drills.

 

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)?

Classroom Walkthroughs and focused walk-throughs with specific feedback to teachers, participating in grade level PLC's, district visits, CADRE meetings with walkthroughs and specific feedback.

 

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

Classroom Walkthroughs and focused walk-throughs with specific feedback to teachers, evidence of common planning, grade-level data review based on assessments, and teacher-led data chats

 

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?

All grade levels use the Florida Standards; iReady LAFS and MAFS and Diagnositc and Standards Mastery; STAR Reading assessment and Accelerated Reader, Journeys, GO-Math, Reflex Math, and Spiral Math; and STEMscopes Science kits with Science A-Z leveled readers.

Primary grades are using LLI (teachers are being trained).

The District has purchased a Leveled Library, which we are waiting to be delivered

 

How does your school implement the Broward County Public Schools Social and Emotional Learning Standards to ensure students are developing social and emotional skills?

Whole-School implementation of the SEL curriculum; Start With Hello, Fill A Bucket, and Silver Shores Elementary School's "How Are You Feeling Today," with students identifying their feelings on the Mood Meter.

 

In which ways are the five competencies of the Social Emotional Learning explicitly taught and/or integrated school-wide and in the classroom?

Teachers imbed the curriculum into their daily lessons; our guidance counselor meets with the grade levels to review the competencies in assemblies.

 

How does your school-wide policy and practices support the social emotional learning for students?

By asking students how they are feeling daily, then choosing a word on the Mood Meter that best describes their feelings at the moment.
