Goal #1

Goal

Riverdale Elementary School’s goal is to have 80% of students making “typical or better progress” as reported on the DIBELS system.  The 2015-2016 mid-year growth baseline will be used for the 2016-2017 school year.  Baseline 2015-2016 growth for first graders is currently 77%, second grade is currently at 55% and third grade is currently at 64%.

Academic Areas

  • Reading

Measurements

All grades will progress monitor students at intensive and risk levels.

Growth to be discussed at PLC Meetings on a monthly basis.

Beginning of the year and mid-year assessments will be given and instruction focused to meet deficits/needs.

SAGE will be given in grades 3-6 three times during the school year.

Action Plan Steps

Collect and analyze all grade levels DIBELS performance data at three monitoring intervals.  Middle of the 2015-2016 year data will be used to set year-long objectives for focus and improvement by individual students.  Data will be collected in 2016-2017 mid-year to analyze student growth.  Hire an AmeriCorp Specialist to organize volunteers in assisting with individualized tutoring and to reinforce reading strategies with at-risk students.  Aides will be hired to work with students as teachers attend PLC meetings to develop curriculum strengthening their instruction.  Aides will also work with small groups of students struggling with reading skills.  To support this reading goal, teachers will have additional opportunities for professional development workshops and collaboration time.  Our librarian will use Land Trust funds to purchase library books.

Expenditures

Category Description Estimated Cost
Salaries and Employee Benefits (100 and 200) Hire four instructional aides to work with children struggling with reading, three aides to work with whole classrooms teaching arts, music and physical education so teacher can work with grade level teams to develop professional learning and date analysis. $26,000
Library Books (644) Purchase library books to enhance content area $1,000
Total: $27,000

Goal #2

Goal

Our goal is to improve mathematical proficiency levels from 40% (average of grades 3-6) to an average of 47% (grades 3-6) with no individual grade level falling below 43% based on end-of-year assessments.

Academic Areas

  • Mathematics

Measurements

Computer based programs, SAGE data and/or grade level common assessments will be used to measure progress towards our math goals.

SLOs will be used to measure growth in Kindergarten through Second grades.

Action Plan Steps

One or more of the following programs will be used 3rd through 6th grade; online math program, tutoring and end of unit assessments.  This information will be used to set year-long objectives and monitor class and individual student progress throughout the year.  Academic aides will be hired and directed by classroom teachers to offer additional instructional opportunities aimed to assist students who were identified as needing math assistance.  To support this math goal, teachers will have additional opportunities for professional development workshops and collaboration time.

Expenditures

Category Description Estimated Cost
Salaries and Employee Benefits (100 and 200) Two aides hired to help struggling students in math $5,000
Total: $5,000

Goal #3

Goal

To provide a K-6th grade STEM educational learning environment at Riverdale Elementary.  At this time the teachers are not trained in STEM.  By the end of the 2016-2017 year, all teacher will be trained in Project Lead the Way, a STEM adopted program for the Weber School District.

Academic Areas

  • Mathematics
  • Technology
  • Science

Measurements

Two teachers will be trained during the summer using the Project Lead the Way program.  The two teachers will train every Riverdale teacher in STEM instruction using the Project Lead the Way program endorsed by the Weber School District.  Every teacher, 100% will implement a quarterly STEM activity in their lesson planning.  This implementation will benefit all children in science, technology, math, engineering and the arts.
