How are we as a staff going to support the district and school in its mission? The overarching mission is to increase student achievement by having all of our students ready to succeed at their next level of education (all subjects), while providing a safe and secure learning environment.
How are we going to support the District (District Goal)?
’11-12 Goal - 90% of the students at each grade-level will be proficient on their established grade-level Math facts, using both written and oral measures to determine mastery. We will use the Math Fact Fluency Checks and other oral measures to determine if this goal is achieved by the end of the 2011-12 school year. – Achieved!
’12-13 Goal – 95% of the students at each grade-level will score 70% or better on each Common Assessment (both formative and quarterly summative assessments). Those students not achieving 70% or higher will receive Tier I classroom intervention support, which will be determined by the classroom teacher and/or PLC team.
Rationale: Without the solid understanding and/or learning of grade-level concepts and skills, students will not be adequately prepared for their next level of Math education and therefore, will struggle throughout their elementary experience, as well as when moving forward to middle school.
How are we going to support the School (School Goal)? (Keeping the same as 2011-12)
95% of the students at each grade-level will show academic growth in the area of Reading. We will be using the follow to determine academic growth: fall to spring NWEA scores (we do not want to see any negative growth), growth in ‘Words per Minute’ or ‘%iles’ on fluency checks, SF common assessments averages, growth in our Reading index score from this year’s NECAP assessment to the 2012-13 NECAP (last year of NECAP is 2014).
Rationale: Proficiency in Reading is critical for future success, as a student and as an adult. By focusing on the Reading growth of all our students, we are in turn working to prepare them for the rest of their education and for life.
