Goal #1

Goal

At the end of the 2015-2016 school year -We will increase Student Growth Percentages (SGP) in language arts for students in grades fourth through sixth by 2%. Using the State of Utah Reading Goal Trajectory of 90% of students at Benchmark by year 2020 by using the DIBELS assessment, our growth for the 2015-2016 year will be as follows: Kindergarten-at or above 74% of student at benchmark according the DIBELS end of year reporting 1st grade-at or above 86% of student at benchmark according the DIBELS end of year reporting 2nd grade- at or above 86% of student at benchmark according the DIBELS end of year reporting 3rd grade- at or above 78% of student at benchmark according the DIBELS end of year reporting

Academic Areas

  • Reading

Measurements

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

DIBELS assessment will be conducted three times per year for students in Grades K-3. Data through the SAGE system will be analyzed to determine Student Growth Percentages (SGP) in grades fourth through sixth. The Gates-MacGinitie test will be administered in grades 4-6 to monitor student growth.

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

3rd                                         77                           81                                           83

Each grade ended at a higher percentage of proficient readers, especially 1st and 3rd grades.  We did not have the anticipated growth of  proficient readers in 2nd grade, but 2nd grade did decrease the number of intensive readers by 5%. We did meet the Pathways of Progress Growth of 48.7 which is set by the State of Utah. We met it as follows: Kindergarten 62.4%, 1st grade 83%, 2nd grade 72%, 3rd grade 67%.

6th                                         39                                          46                                                          57           

Overall, as a school our proficiency score improved from 155 to 163 and our growth improved from 180 to 190, giving our a school a 3% improvement from the previous school year.

Action Plan Steps

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

At least three reading aides will continue to be employed to provide small-group reading interventions to at-risk readers in grades K-2 using a push in model. DIBELS assessment will be conducted at regular intervals for grades 1-3 students. A reading aide will be employed provide reading interventions to at-risk readers in grade 3-6. In addition to classroom Tier II instruction, all students who are identified as intensive by the DIBELS tests will receive additional reading interventions from the Reading Intervention Team. Teachers will participate monthly in grade level professional development by the reading specialist. The reading specialist will provide side by side coaching to teachers. Teachers will have the opportunity to observe other teachers demonstrating best practices in language arts. Teachers will receive continued training focusing on learning, building a collaborative culture, and improving results through data analysis

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

Goal #2

Goal

All students will receive a minimum of .5 hours per week of technology instruction through a hired aide. Teachers in the classroom will utilize technology to increase student engagement, learning and assessment practice through use of a purchased portable lab. This goal will be reached at the end of the 2015-2016 school year.

Academic Areas

  • Reading
  • Mathematics
  • Writing
  • Technology

Measurements

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

Students in grades 1-6 will have grade appropriate keyboarding skills taught by computer lab aide. Students in grades 3-6 will have computer time to take teacher created SAGE assessments during the year. In grades 4-6 our Student Growth Percentage (SGP) from SAGE testing will increase by 2% in writing, language arts, and mathematics. Teacher technology in-services demonstrating how to integrate technology into classroom instruction will occur throughout the year during teacher meetings.

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