80% of students in first and second graders will meet grade level expectations on the Phonological Awareness Skills Screener.
70% of students in third through sixth grades will meet proficiency on the Core Phonics Assessment.
75% (unadjusted) of students in third through sixth grades will pass the Reading SOL test.
- Teachers will use evidence-based literacy practices to explicitly and systematically teach language comprehension skills in the core language arts block.
- Provide daily, systematic, explicit instruction in phonological awareness, phonics, and morphology in the core language arts block.
- The reading specialist and classroom teachers will provide Tier 2 instruction to identified students as preventative intervention that targets the underlying difficulty impacting the student’s progress in literacy.
End of Year SMARTR Outcome: Mathematics
Ensure students are making sufficient progress to be on grade level in Mathematics.
100% of students in Grades K-2 will demonstrate growth on the GRES Strategic Inventory Assessment (SA), with 80% of students showing proficiency (70% or above).
70% (unadjusted) of students in Grades 3-6 will pass the EOY Math SOL test.
- Teachers will strengthen instruction by making the shift towards high-leverage instruction as outlined in the Framework for Engaging & Student-Centered Mathematics Instruction by initiating Shifts 6 (From students replicating work to students selecting efficient strategies).
- Teachers will provide embedded Tier 2 instruction to identified students as preventative intervention during guided math and WIN Time, that targets the underlying difficulty impacting the student’s progress in math.
End of Year SMARTR Outcome: Wellness
Ensure students feel safe, included, and supported in the school environment.
By the end of the 2022-2023, our school will utilize Responsive Classroom Tier 1 practices and Tier 2/Tier 3 interventions with fidelity so that 90% of students with tier 2/3 needs in self-management show progress shown by SEL screener data and anecdotal teacher data.
- (Rubric/CASEL Theory of Action: Strengthening Adult SEL & Promoting SEL) Staff members will implement all components of required Responsive Classroom practices using time protected by the master schedule.
- (Rubric/CASEL Theory of Action: Strengthening Adult SEL & Promoting SEL) Model required practices in adult meetings to foster relationships, buy-in and learning.
