School Plan 2016-2017

Goal #1 

Goal

At the end of the 2016-2017 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, 48.7% of students in grade Kindergarten through 3rd will achieve typical of above growth during the 2016-2017 school year

Academic Areas

  • Reading

Measurements

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.

Action Plan Steps

At least three reading aides will continue to be employed to provide small-group reading interventions to all students in grades K-1 using a push in model. Aides will also work with at risk readers in 2nd and 3rd grades. 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 in K-1 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

Expenditures

Category Description Estimated Cost
  Total: $42,000
Salaries and Employee Benefits (100 and 200) Cost of four aides and substitute costs for teacher training/collaboration $42,000

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 2016-2017 school year.

Academic Areas

  • Reading
  • Mathematics
  • Writing
  • Technology

Measurements

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.

Action Plan Steps

An aide will be hired to provide computer time to all students in grades K-6. In-service opportunities for teachers will be provided to develop skills using technology in the classroom. Necessary technology replacement items will support the goals. Teachers in grades 3-6 will have access to a purchased Google Chrome portable lab to increase student engagement, learning, and assessment practice.
