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?

Although both reading and math proficiency levels have been on the increase since 2016, math proficiency rates for students in the 5th grade have declined.  Trends indicate that students who were proficient in 4th grade and not retaining their proficiency rates once they test in 5th grade.

 

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?

Tier 1 instruction and utilizing data to improve instruction will be scaled-up to increase performance,

 

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

Reading, math, and science teachers will increase the amount of times spent in classrooms modeling lessons for teachers.
PLC's/Curriculum chats will be held in a common gathering place to increase fidelity.
More focused PD will be incorporated.Increased alignment of instructional content to the Florida Standards
Increased STEM Magnet grant implementation
RTI & Tier l-ll-lll interventions
 

 

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

Reading, writing, math, and science student achievement data is collected and reviewed monthly.  This includes reteaching and reassessing.  Students in the lowest 30 quartile are also being monitored monthly.  School City and iReady data are being closely monitored.

 

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

Teachers participate in quarterly data chats with administration and coaches.  RTI sessions are conducted weekly and are being attended by the math and reading coaches.  Fidelity of interventions are being monitored.

 

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 techniques and strategies afford student opportunities for engagement, representation and expression

 

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

In addition to administrative walkthroughs, coaches are conducting classroom walkthroughs as well.  Feedback is focused and specific.  Data will also be an indicator.

 

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?

Students have access to informational text through a variety of leveled  text in their classroom libraries.    Students receive additional access to informational text across all content areas through teacher utilization of the leveled book resource room.  Integrated learning systems such as  i Ready, Smarty Antz, GIZMO's  afford students the opportunity to be exposed to informational text. Students also have access to district resources from the Social Studies and ELA departments that were received this school year.
