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

All grade levels use curriculum maps to pace their grade level standards.  This is a working document, and grade levels modify based on student needs.  At the end of each 2-3 week cycle, students are assessed with a common assessment (K-1 use CARE assessments, 2-5 use Standard Assessments from iReady).  Teachers participate in PLCs and share best practices based on results.  Teachers record the CARE info on data excel files in One Drive.  Support staff uses this data to monitor referral to RtI/MTSS.  MTSS is every Tuesday with the schedule created by the Guidance Counselor.  Teachers refer students, but other staff and parents may also have concerns.  Concerns can be academic or behavioral.  Attendance data is also analyzed at MTSS meetings. Students are placed on Tier 2 interventions.    Additionally, attendance is monitored by the IMT and AP.  Parent contact is made through letters or phone calls for chronic absent or tardy issues.

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?

Lakeside will be focusing on small group instruction during all subject areas.  Our Learning Gains in ELA (45) and Math (63.  The learning gains in ELA decreased by 6 points, while the learning gains in Math decreased by 9. Both areas for the Lowest 25 students also decreased.  Our focus is on small group instruction so that teachers are meeting the precise needs of all students in both areas.  

 

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 work on implementing an effective instructional blocks by introducing the lesson in whole group for 15 - 20 minutes, and then break into centers, small group, and independent work.  During small group instruction, teachers will target specific skills and components of standards where students are struggling.  

 

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

Teachers will be encouraged to visit other classrooms. The Pineapple Chart will be on display which will welcome staff members to other rooms to observe best practices.  Key rooms for small group instruction will be identified and suggested to specific teachers.  

 

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

iReady Diagnostic is given 3x per year.  Teachers will use the initial iReady to determine baseline.  Then they will measure progress with 2nd Diagnostic.  

 

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

Ongoing CARE assessments will provide formative data to drive instructional decisions.  

 

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)?

Frequent classroom walkthroughs during math block in all grade levels without evaluative measures will be used to provide feedback to teachers.  

 

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

Tier 1 instruction is monitored through frequent walkthroughs by admin & the curriculum coach providing feedback to teachers and support from the Curriculum Coach. 

 

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?

Lakeside Elementary has an extensive resource room with leveled readers for teachers to use during small group instruction.  Additionally teachers use the anchor texts provided with the science and social studies curriculum materials for shared reading and read aloud activities with the whole class.  Science A-Z readers and Social Studies readers are used to support all components of balanced literacy.  

 

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

Our guidance counselor provides on going training to classroom teachers during faculty meetings and on planning days.  Teachers are provided with resources to support SEL standards.  The Student Support Committee meets monthly to discuss items teachers need, lessons that should be delivered (such as Start with Hello), and other SEL info.  

 

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

The five competencies were shared with teachers during preplanning. The teachers are using Sanford Harmony curriculum to teach the students the 5 competencies.  

 

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

Our 5th grade Peacemakers are utilizing materials from Sandy Hook Promise - Promise Club to help us integrate SEL schoolwide.
