Goal #1

Goal

Specific reading goal for Riverdale Elementary is to achieve 85% on the DIBELS composite score for overall school performance above the intensive level by year end in grades K through 5th.

Academic Areas

  • Reading

Measurements

This is the measurement identified in the plan to determine if the goal was reached.

In grades K through 5th, 85% of grade level above intensive level on DIBELS composite score at year end. *6th grade students will have a baseline DIBELS measurement in the fall and only those at the intensive level then will be monitored and post measured with DIBELS. Other students may be monitored because of teacher recommendations.

Please show the before and after measurements and how academic performance was improved.

The following table shows the growth of students on the DIBELS.
Grade     BOY       MOY     EOY 
K      	 68%     83%     72%
1st   	 67%     65%     64%
2nd   	55%     59%     64%
3rd   	 72%     79%     85%

Students above intensive (school wide)
Beginning of year  69%
End of year  84%

We missed our goal by 1% or by five students.  This data does not exclude those students who registered throughout the school year.

Action Plan Steps

This is the Action Plan Steps identified in the plan to reach the goal.

Collect and analyze all grade levels DIBELS performance data at three monitoring intervals. Beginning of year data will be used to set year-long objectives for focus and improvement by individual students. Academic aides will be hired and directed by classroom teachers to offer additional instructional opportunities aimed to assist students who were identified as needing reading assistance. Have a ½ time AmeriCorp specialist: Manage school cross-age tutoring program and Morning Star Program. Organize volunteer force to assist with individualized tutoring. Teach reading strategies to at-risk students. Help administer DIBELS test. Each class will be scheduled to receive 30 minutes of music instruction weekly from a music aide, during this time teachers will work with struggling individuals and or small groups to support this reading goal. 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.

Please explain how the action plan was implemented to reach this goal.

     Academic aides were hired to work with students not reaching benchmark.  The students received one-on-one tutoring and/or small group tutoring reinforcing skills taught in the classroom.  Teachers also worked with individual students showing deficits in reading. 
   The Americorp specialist worked with 45 students testing just below benchmark.  She was in charge of volunteers who would come in and read with the students referred to the program.
     Riverdale hired an aide to teach music to the classes while the teachers collaborated and attended Professional Learning Communities.
     The librarian used $1000.00 to purchase books for the outdated sections in the media center.

Goal #2

Goal

Improve student mathematical proficiency: 80% of students will reach grade level benchmark or higher.

Academic Areas

  • Mathematics

Measurements

This is the measurement identified in the plan to determine if the goal was reached.

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

Please show the before and after measurements and how academic performance was improved.

SAGE Overall yearly proficiency growth of students

Grade       2014     2015    2016
  3rd           35%      37%     33%
  4th           28%      43%     46%
  5th           45%     32%      43%
  6th           42%     45%      39%

So if you look at the 4th graders in 2014 they made a 4% growth in 2015 as fifth graders and a 7% growth in 2016 as 6th graders.  84% of students showed growth on grade level assessments, computer based programs and grade level benchmarks.

Action Plan Steps

This is the Action Plan Steps identified in the plan to reach the goal.

One or more of the following programs will be used 3rd through 6th grade; Moby Max, Ten Marks, and ALEKS, while including 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.

Please explain how the action plan was implemented to reach this goal.

     Academic aides were hired to work with small groups and individual students lacking in mathematical skills.   Aides worked with each grade level for approximately 30 minutes every day.  They worked with students on facts, completing assignments, and areas of confusion.
     The students worked on ALEKS, a computer program aimed at practicing math skills shown during teacher instruction.

Goal #3

Goal

All students at Riverdale Elementary will receive quality instruction and interventions in writing. Grades 3-6 will achieve individual class averages (first drafts) on the Utah Compose online writing program as follows: Grade 3, 80% will score 12 or higher Grade 4, 80% will score 15 or higher Grade 5, 80% will score 19 or higher Grade 6, 80% will score 22 or higher

Academic Areas

  • Writing

Measurements

This is the measurement identified in the plan to determine if the goal was reached.

The Utah Compose writing program will be used for a baseline and end of year measurement. Also SAGE assessments will be used to measure progress towards our writing goal as well as using grade level and classroom assessments.

Please show the before and after measurements and how academic performance was improved.

The classrooms that used Utah Compose had an increase from 14 points (beginning of year) to 19 points (end of year).

Action Plan Steps

This is the Action Plan Steps identified in the plan to reach the goal.

Monthly, teachers will review the data collected during PLC meetings and address overall student needs. Teachers will develop tier 1, 2, and 3 strategies from the data to help students reach and or exceed grade level expectations with writing. Vertical teaming will allow all grades to understand expectations and improve student learning in writing.

Please explain how the action plan was implemented to reach this goal.

Teachers met weekly to discuss data, student improvement, student needs and intervention practices.

Goal #4

Goal

Grade level teams will examine and evaluate the science core and identify the essential learning targets to improve student learning. The goal is to have more students at grade level proficiency each year in grades 4 through 6

Academic Areas

  • Science

Measurements

This is the measurement identified in the plan to determine if the goal was reached.

Class and grade level assessments and Moby Max new Science component will be used for baseline, end of year, and continuous monitoring of student improvement. Also, student science achievement baselines will be obtained and evaluated from SAGE measurements. Completion of identifying the essential learning targets by mid year.

Please show the before and after measurements and how academic performance was improved.

Progression of science throughout years  SAGE

Grade level           2014     2015     2016
  4th grade            27%       25%    27%
  5th grade           46%        41%    37%
  6th grade          45%         47%     42%

Moby Max did not meet our requirements and will not be used in the 2016-2017 school year.  STEM was introduced and will be continued throughout 2016-2017 school year to help increase our science scores.

Action Plan Steps

This is the Action Plan Steps identified in the plan to reach the goal.

The data measurements will drive tier 1, 2, and 3 instruction. In grade level PLC meetings teachers will collaborate to determine what they want students to know and be able to do. The teachers will plan what learning experiences and teaching strategies best promote understanding. The data will also help develop differentiating instruction.

Please explain how the action plan was implemented to reach this goal.

Teachers met on a weekly basis.  Discussions were held about all areas of curriculum and CORE standards.  The teachers were also trained on Depth of Knowledge (DOK) and implemented DOK levels throughout their instruction.
