School Improvement & Innovation Plan

Outcome Goals for the School Year

2017-18 Daniels Run Elementary School Region 5 Adam Erbrecht, Principal

 

End of Year SMARTR Outcome

Daniels Run will continue to build a Responsive Instruction (RI) process that strengthens core instruction and diagnoses, targets, and intervenes on foundational skills.

By June 2018, Daniels Run will increase from an average score of 2.9 to an average score of 4.0 as measured by the RI self-assessment rubric.

By June 2018, students who score below the 40th percentile on the Universal Screener will make at least one year’s growth in their DRA level or pass a math common assessment (SOL or end of year common assessment). Students at or above the 40th percentile in the fall will maintain or grow in their percentile on the screener by the spring.

By June 2018, Daniels Run will decrease the number of students who are below the 40th percentile on the Universal Screener in reading and math by at least 10%.

Strategy 1

Improve core instruction in literacy, math, and behavior.

Strategy 2

Conduct bi-monthly collaborative team meetings to focus on identifying and intervening based on student needs in foundational skills.

Strategy 3

Provide targeted instruction in literacy, math, and behavior.

 

 

End of Year SMARTR Outcome

Daniels Run will empower students to own their learning.

In October 2017, all students will collect baseline data on their actions and beliefs related to open-mindedness and resiliency by taking a student self-assessment.

By June 2018, students’ resilient actions, beliefs, and behaviors will grow, as measured by the same self-reflective survey.

Strategy 1

Students will learn about and complete the Open-minded and Resilient Self-Assessment to reflect three times during the year as a measure of student ownership.

Strategy 2

Staff will emphasize Positivity Project (P2) strengths that connect to student ownership and growth mindset directly - such as OpenMindedness, Perseverance, and Humility/Modesty.

 

 

End of Year SMARTR Outcome

All students will participate in learning experiences that foster critical and creative thinking skills.

Teachers will plan and implement instructional practices aligned with Portrait of a Graduate (POG). Every teacher will use a POG rubric in at least one of the 5 skills to measure student growth. By the end of the 3rd quarter, every teacher will have sent home at least one rubric or selfassessment to communicate about student progress in the POG skills.

Strategy 1

Grade level teams and resource staff will collaborate to design instruction that supports the development of the five POG skills.

Strategy 2

Teachers will continue to participate in professional development and training opportunities to build their knowledge and expand their repertoire of advanced curriculum and instructional strategies.

Strategy 3

Teachers will implement at least two learning experiences that support developing POG skills during the year.
