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?
Due to a significant decrease in fifth grade Math Proficiency, Sunset Lakes will focus on improving student achievement in Math. The specific area we are targeting is Measurement and Data.
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?
Sunset Lakes Elementary will analyze data differently:
- School-Wide iReady Diagnostic
- Fifth grade standards mastery
- Math Assessments: Beginning, Middle, and End
- Quarterly Data Chats K-4
- Fifth grade data PLC- biweekly
Describe in detail how the BEST Practice(s) will be scaled-up.
Teachers will meet with administration and support staff to discuss data. Support staff will attend curriculum meetings to assist in planning. Administration and support staff will conference with students regarding student performance. Lastly, there will be a new data implementation being used.
What specific school-level progress monitoring data is collected and how often?
Sunset Lakes will use iReady diagnostic three times per year. In addition, BOY, MOY, and EOY math assessments. Teachers will use standard mastery based on grade-level curriculum map and Broward County Scope and Sequence.
How does the school ensure the fidelity of students not progressing towards school and district goals?
Administration and support staff will conference with students who are under performing. Teachers will use Tier 2 and Tier 3 interventions to remediate in the classroom. High-risk fifth grade students have been identified and are receiving pull-out support based on need.
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)?
Teachers plan so that all students have access to grade-level curriculum, while meeting in small group to remediate and close the achievement gap.
How does the school ensure Tier 1 Standards-Based classroom instruction is being implemented properly and effectively?
Teachers plan as a grade level in order to ensure that the rigor of each standard is met through Tier 1 instruction, using a variety of resources.
