Goal #1

Goal

Riverdale Elementary'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 at 77%, second grade is currently at 55%, and third grade is currently at 64%.

Academic Areas

  • Reading

Measurements

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

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.

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

DIBELS First Grade:
	Beginning of year:  63% proficient
	Middle of year: 73% proficient
	End of year: 67% proficient

DIBELS Second Grade:
	Beginning of year: 75% proficient
   Middle of year:  71% proficient
	End of year: 70% proficient

DIBELS Third Grade:
	Beginning of year:  57% proficient
	Middle of year:  60% proficient
	End of year: 59% proficient

SAGE growth scores:
Grade 4   Math: 70%      Language Arts:48%
Grade 5   Math: 40%      Language Arts: 26%
Grade 6   Math: 32%      Language Arts: 32%

In looking at the data, Riverdale's interventions focus on the below grade level students and the growth scores exceeded 40 percentage points while the above grade level scores are less than 4 percentage points.  For example:  In the fourth grade we had an overall 70% growth; however, only five proficient students had a growth from the previous year's proficiency score.  We need to address our proficient students' growth scores.

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. 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.

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

Riverdale hired an Americorp specialist who recruited and trained volunteers to help students in reading.  Aides were hired to teach art, music, Spanish, and PreventionDimension to students as teachers planned, analyzed data, and developed curriculum.   We also hired instructional aides to work with students that struggled with concepts in reading.
     The media specialist ordered books in the area of STEM.

Expenditures

CategoryDescriptionEstimated CostActual CostActual Use
 Total:$27,000$34,948 
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 teachers can work with grade level teams to develop professional learning and data analysis.

Goal #2

Goal

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

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.

SLO's will be used to measure growth in kindergarten through second grade.

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

During PLC's, teachers determined the need for a more rigorous math program.  Several grade levels used Eureka Math to address holes in the curriculum.

SAGE 2016 growth scores:
   Fourth grade:  64%  Proficiency: 46%
   Fifth grade:  58%      Proficiency:  43%
   Sixth grade:  84%     Proficiency: 39%

SAGE 2017 growth scores
  Fourth grade:  70%   Proficiency: 44%
  Fifth grade:  40%       Proficiency: 39%
  Sixth grade:  32%      Proficiency: 21%

SLO's Common Assessments
    Kindergarten:  BOY:  77%      EOY:  94%
    First grade:  BOY:  66%          EOY: 84%
    Second grade:  BOY:  69%     EOY:  85%
    Third grade:  BOY: 63%          EOY:  80%

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; 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.

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

Student academic growth was monitored on a weekly basis.  Re-teaching took place during interventions using instructional aides.  During PLC's teachers discussed curriculum and analyzed data of student achievement.

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 teachers will be trained in Project Lead the Way a STEM adopted program for Weber School District.

Academic Areas

  • Mathematics
  • Technology
  • Science

Measurements

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

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 Way program endorsed by 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.

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

All Riverdale teachers attended professional development on the Project Lead the Way program.  Each teacher implemented a STEM activity each quarter.  As a school we had a parent night with STEM activities and invited every family to complete an at-home-STEM project.

Action Plan Steps

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

Attend PLTW training
Collect supplies and instructional materials
Implement lessons in classroom
Survey students

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

The staff attended a 2 day training for Project Lead the Way, introducing the program and practicing the hands-on activities.  The staff then implemented the first two modules in PLTW during the school year with support from administration.
