Title I Requirements

COMPREHENSIVE NEEDS ASSESSMENT of the entire school (including the needs of migrant children) with information about the academic achievement of children in relation to the state academic content standards.
Describe the process utilized to conduct the comprehensive needs assessment for this school.

Prior year assessment data from the FSA sores, BAS, and iReady scores are internal assessments and diagnostics test that were organized with graphs, tables, and charts. Information was organized to show individual teacher, grade level, and school wide results. Individual student results were given to classroom teachers for their review.
Parents are also vital part of the process. A parent survey is sent home each spring to gather input concerning curriculum, environment, and communication. Results from this survey are used to help write goals for the school.
Parents are invited to meet with administration to discuss student achievement results and strategies for improving scores. Suggestions are discussed with staff and considered for inclusion in school wide plans.

Instruction by HIGHLY QUALIFIED TEACHERS in all core content area classes
List instructional staff and paraprofessionals that are NOT highly qualified (instructional staff only).

At this time, we have 7 teachers teaching out of field in ESOL and 2 Gifted. However, they are taking the courses needed to be certified in these subject areas. 
All paraprofessionals are highly qualified.  


Describe strategies that will be used to attract high-quality, highly qualified teachers.

The district's Human Resources and Staff Development departments, as well as a district level Teacher Recruitment Committee work collaboratively to retain and recruit highly qualified , certified-in-field, effective teachers. The district also has a website used to attract teachers to Broward County based upon regional perks, "Teach Near the Beach" and opportunities to receive benefits beyond a paycheck. Sheridan Park Elementary School’s collaboration with the district is evidenced by participation in Broward Teacher Recruitment Fairs. Vacancies are filled with candidates interviewed at the recruitment fair and referred by the districts instructional staffing department. Retention of teachers is a top priority of our school. Teachers are cultivated and nurtured at Sheridan Park Elementary to grow professionally. We retain highly qualified, certified-in-field, effective teachers in our school by participating in Professional Learning Communities, District Trainings (District Personnel), School-Based Professional Development, Teacher Recognition and Incentives (Administration).
