Goal #1

Goal

Eighty four percent of students will be reading at benchmark by the end of the 2015-16 school year. We will also maintain an 84% school average in student reading comprehension as measured by DIBELS DAZE (3rd-6th) from beginning to ending assessment.

Academic Areas

  • Reading

Measurements

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

Students-- Kindergarten-6th grade --will be assessed annually with DIBELS. The first DIBELS test will act as our pretest and the final assessment will be used to measure year-end progress. Our students (3-6) will also have reading comprehension assessed using DIBELS DAZE test.

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

At the beginning of the 2015-16 school year, 82.4% of students were reading at benchmark.  87.6% of West Haven students were reading at benchmark by the end of the 2015-16 school year.

o             At the beginning of the 2015-16 school year, 64% of Kindergarten students were reading at benchmark.  89% of Kindergarten students were reading at benchmark by the end of the 2015-16 school year.

o             At the beginning of the 2015-16 school year, 87% of 2nd grade students were reading at benchmark.  86% of 2nd grade students were reading at benchmark by the end of the 2015-16 school year.

o             At the beginning of the 2015-16 school year, 83% of 3rd grade students were reading at benchmark.  89% of 3rd grade students were reading at benchmark by the end of the 2015-16 school year.

o             At the beginning of the 2015-16 school year, 94% of students were reading at benchmark.  92% of 6th grade students were reading at benchmark by the end of the 2015-16 school year.

Our school average in student reading comprehension as measured by DIBELS DAZE (3rd-6th) is 88.75.

Action Plan Steps

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

1. Land trust monies will be spent to maintain the services of a paraprofessional. Children will be identified as intensive, strategic, or benchmark level using the DIBELS. The reading specialist and paraprofessionals will provide reading intervention services. Small group intervention will be provided for those students identified as intensive in grades K-3. 2. Professional Learning Community (PLC) time will be given to teachers. This time will be used for teacher collaboration on best practices, standard based assessments (SBA), pacing guides, interventions and extensions, and to look at data to improve student learning and Tier 1 instruction. 3.          During PLC time, students will be working with a computer and art paraprofessional. The computer paraprofessional will be focusing on computer skills and keyboard proficiency. The arts paraprofessional will base their lessons on the Utah fine arts curriculum. *We have applied for the Beverly Sorenson Arts grant. If we receive the grant, the funding set aside for the art paraprofessional will be used for additional access points. 4.         An additional Chromebook lab will be rented to maintain time for fact practice and teacher directed computer instruction. 5.      The number of access points in the building will be increased to support the use of technology. 6.  The Keyboard Chatter Program will be purchased and used to teach keyboarding skills. 7.          In addition to common assessments, MobyMax will be purchased to document the progress each student is making in mathematics. 8.   One teacher from each grade level team will receive Professional Learning Community (PLC) training. 9.         Substitute teachers will be provided as outlined below. a.            Substitute will be hired in the event the art or computer paraprofessional needs a sick or vacation day. b.           Substitute teachers will be hired to allow time for SST meeting, collaboration and observation. *We are currently applying for the Beverly Sorensen Arts grant. If we get the grant, the money for the Art paraprofessional will be used to increase the number of access points in the building.

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

Land trust monies were used to hire a reading paraprofessional.  Using the beginning of the year Dibel's test results, the reading specialist identified students who needed extra reading support and placed them in a reading group.   PLC time was provided for teachers to collaborate on best practices, standard based assessment, pacing guides, interventions and extensions and Tier 1 instruction.  A computer paraprofessional was hired to teach computer skills and keyboard proficiency using the Keyboard Chatter Program.  An art  paraprofessional was hired and provided art instruction based on the Utah Fine Arts curriculum.  A Chromebook lab was rented and six additional access points were purchased and installed in classrooms.  Moby Max was purchased and was used to document the student progress in mathematics.   One teacher from every grade level was sent to PLC conference in Salt Lake.  Subs were provided for this conference and Student Success Team meetings.
