Goal #1 Edit Answers

Goal

By the end of the 2015-16 school year, increase the number of 3-6th grade students scoring proficient on the SAGE math and language arts assessments by 10% and increase the number of 4-6th grade students scoring proficient on the SAGE science assessment by 10%. By the end of the 2015-16 school year, increase the number of 1st and 2nd grade students scoring proficient on the end of level district wide assessment by 10%. By the end of the 2015-16 school year, 80% to 90% of kindergarten students will score proficient on the end of level district wide kindergarten assessment.

Academic Areas

  • Reading
  • Mathematics
  • Science
  • Technology

Measurements

This is the measurement identified in the plan to determine if the goal was reached.

Interim assessments will be administered four times during the academic school year in math and language arts for students in grades 1-6 and grades 4-6 in Science. Data from Interim assessments will be used to track and monitor individual student progress to ensure adequate growth is being made throughout the year and students are on track to reach end of year goals successfully. DIBELS assessment will be given three times per year for all students in grades K-6 and progress monitoring will occur weekly for targeted students. First and second grade teachers will assess students using the DRA assessment 2-3 times per year and use data to plan and deliver interventions as needed. Kindergarten teachers will assess students multiple times throughout the year to ensure students are on track to meet end of year goals.

Please show the before and after measurements and how academic performance was improved.

Action Plan Steps

This is the Action Plan Steps identified in the plan to reach the goal.

Teachers will meet weekly in a grade level PLC meetings to review data results from assessments given at scheduled times throughout the year. Teachers will come prepared to discuss individual student progress and determine what standards and skills require reteaching and students who will benefit from individual student interventions. A plan of action for each teacher will be developed as a result of the discussion and review of data. Interventions will include Tier II small group instruction delivered by the classroom teacher, ERI for Kindergarten students delivered by classroom teacher and paraprofessionals assigned to each class; Lead Tutoring provided after school by a certified teacher for each grade level. The Resource Teacher and her paraprofessional will provide Tier III intervention support for students targeted for additional instructional support. Homework Hall will be held five days a week during the Extended Day Program with support from volunteers and students from the University of Utah and Westminister College.

Please explain how the action plan was implemented to reach this goal.

PLC meetings were held weekly throughout the year for each grade level alternating weeks for Language Arts and Math. Teachers reviewed interim data and discussed student performance for individual students in each grade level classroom. Intervention plans were developed and implemented.
