Goal #1

Our goal is by the end of the 2022-23 school year, we will increase our overall language arts RISE proficiency levels in each grade, 3-6, by 1% from the previous year. Further, we will increase our overall Acadience typical or above growth levels as a school K-3, by 1% from the previous year.

 
Academic Area
  • English/Language Arts
 
Measurements

Data through the RISE assessment system will be used to measure the 1% proficiency increase in each grade, 3 through 6. Acadience end of year testing K-3 typical or above growth level.

 
Action Steps

1.  School LAND Trust funds will support this goal by providing substitute teachers during the professional learning community block schedule time ($6000) so that classroom educators can attend collaboration team meetings where ongoing student data is monitored by grade level teachers. Adjustments in curriculum delivery are made based on student performance.


2.  School LAND Trust funds will be used to hire four academic aides at 4 hours a day ($47,000) and a computer lab specialist ($8000) to help the students receive quality instruction and interventions as needed, and to assist in the delivery of small group and individualized instruction.


3.  Chromebooks will be obtained through the school district technology department for 1 to 1 placement throughout the school to assist with Imagine learning, keyboarding skill building, small group instruction, the Utah Compose Writing program, and benchmark assessments. (1 to 1 Chromebook lease $15,000 and cart $1,200)


Further the following action steps will be implemented; funding for actions in this section requiring financial support will be drawn from other school funding sources:


1. Grade level essential learning targets will be monitored through common formative assessment data from introduction to proficiency and evaluated throughout the year to determine student progress. Essential learning target mastery will be determined by 80 percent of students achieving 80 percent proficiency or higher. Common formative assessment data will help determine student performance and needs, individually and as a grade, for grades Kindergarten through sixth. ($0)

2.  Student growth percentiles will be monitored, in each grade level, and compared with progress towards proficiency improvements. ($0)
