School Plan 2017-2018 - Riverdale EL

Goal #1


Using technology and other resources, students will meet grade-level reading benchmarks as assessed by DIBELS and/or District mandated tests by the end of

the 2017/2018 school year.

Academic Areas

  • Reading
  • Technology


DIBELS will be the measurement used in K-2.  DIBELS DAZE and SAGE benchmarks will be the measurements used in grades 3-6.  The baseline will be the beginning of year scores for each grade level.  Riverdale will be striving for all students to make growth with at least 80% of students meeting or exceeding end of year DIBELS benchmark and at least 80% meeting or exceeding District benchmark levels.

Action Plan Steps

1.  The Academic Team will develop a school-wide learning plan with professional development for teachers to develop and implement research-based teaching skills and strategies.
2.  Technology will be used to enhance the students' educational experience and broaden their depth of knowledge for informational text.  Students will research, analyze, and interpret readings with accuracy.  
3.  Teachers will identify grade-level essential learning targets for reading and develop a plan to address the targets with interventions and increase student growth.  This will be completed in Professional Learning Communities.
4.  Aides will be provided for PLC coverage and classroom interventions guided by the teacher.
5.  We will replace seven projectors for our ten-year-old SMART board systems which are essential to student success with learning objectives and instrumental for using our current student response systems, software programs, and other audio-visual materials.
