BEST PRACTICE #2

An Embedded High Quality RtI Process

RESPONSE TO INTERVENTION (RTI)

Response to Intervention (RtI) uses student academic and behavior information to identify students with learning and behavior needs to guarantee that those in danger of failure and/or retention are receiving assistance and support.

Data For: 2015-2016 (Last updated: 9/20/2016)

Grade

Student Enrollment

% of students with attendance below 90%

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

To decrease students with 1 or more suspensions our teachers are utilizing the Social Emotional Learning (SEL) standards into their curriculum to encourage positive socio-emotional skills. Administration conducts discipline assemblies and with Guidance implements frequent parent communication via parent conferences.

To increase attendance, we have consistent parent communication via Pinnacle, Parent Link, and teacher websites to inform parents of vital academic activities that their students need to be present every day to increase student achievement.  We are having a school wide competition each other for the first period with the best attendance.

BEST PRACTICE #3

Optimal Internal/External Relationships

ACCREDITATION PROCESS

The Accreditation Process leads schools to critically evaluate teaching and learning with a focus on academic excellence. All stakeholders (parents, students, staff, and community) are part of the accreditation process.

Explain the activities in which your school will participate to increase your overall rating. Include specific details.

School Leadership and staff will continue to communicate student achievement data results using several delivery methods, and appropriate sophistication for various stakeholder groups. School Personnel will continue to use district provided and teacher created data management tools and systems to collect, analyze, and interpret student achievement data. Professional Learning Communities will be used to discuss, analyze, and design systems for continuous improvement. School leadership will monitor these systems to ensure better consistency across grade levels and within disciplines.
