Land Trust School Improvement Plan

Posted in SCC

2017-2018 Land Trust Plan 

Goal:  90% of K-3 students at Lone Peak Elementary will reach proficiency on Dynamic Indicators of Basic Literacy Skill (DIBELS) measures by the end of the 2017 to 2018 school year. 80% of 4th and 5th grade students will reach the proficient performance standard on the Scholastic Reading Inventory (SRI).

Academic Area:   Reading

Measurements:  
Current K-3 Dibels data shows that our students are performing at 85% proficient and current SRI data indicates that our 4th and 5th grade students are performing at 50% proficient.  Our goal is that by Spring 2018 K-3 Dibels data will be at 90% proficient and SRI data for 4th and 5th grade will be at 80% proficient.

We will use Dibels tests and data to track and monitor progress toward goals.

We will also use the Scholastic Reading Inventory (SRI) in grades 4 and 5 three times a year.

Action Plan Steps:

Six Tier II interventionists will  be hired with the money provided by the Land Trust to provide additional support for those students struggling to make progress and who could benefit from additional small group support.  Our Tier II interventionists will be supervised and trained by our achievement coach and principal.
 
One Instructional Support Assistant will be hired to provide release time in order to implement peer coaching opportunities for teachers.
 
One Chromebook cart and classroom set of Chromebooks will be ordered to help facilitate differentiated learning opportunities for students during small group reading time.
 
In addition, we will purchase additional reading material for use in small group instruction to increase the text complexity for students
 
Goal:

By the end of the 2017-2018 school year, 80% of students at Lone Peak Elementary will perform at a proficient level on District Wide Standards Based Standards Based Assessments in the area of mathematics.

Measurements:
Current District Wide Standard Based Assessment data shows that our students are performing at 75% proficient   Our goal is that by Spring 2018 all grade levels will be at 80% proficient average.
Action Plan Steps: 
Six Tier II interventionists will  be hired with the money provided by the Land Trust to provide additional support for those students struggling to make progress and who could benefit from additional small group support.  Our Tier II interventionists will be supervised and trained by our achievement coach and principal.
 
One Instructional Support Assistant will be hired to provide release time in order to implement peer coaching opportunities for teachers.

 

Expenditures:

Salaries and Employee Benefits (100 and 200)

Salaries and Benefits for 6 Tier II interventionists to help with support for students below proficiency in the area of reading. Salary and Benefits for 1 instructional aide to provide coverage for teachers to receive coaching opportunities.

$51,493

General Supplies (610)

Reading material at the grade level lexile band to increase proficiency on the Scholastic Reading Inventory.

$10,000

Equipment (Computer Hardware, Instruments, Furniture) (730)

One classroom set of Chromebooks and Chromebook carts for use with Lexia or Reading Plus.

$7,000

                                                                                                            Total: $68,493

 

 

Increased Distribution:

 

The 2017-2018 distribution in this plan is an estimate. If the actual distribution is more than the estimate, how will additional funds be spent to implement the goals described in the plan?

Additional Land Trust funds will be used to provide professional development and to purchase teacher materials (including technology if appropriate) supporting student achievement and improve Tier I instruction available to all teachers in reading and science. By addressing Tier I instruction with additional funds, this would limit our need for as many Tier II interventions. If additional funds were substantial enough, we would hire other instructional assistants to help meet the needs of all students at Lone Peak in reading

 

 

 

 

 

 

2016-2017 Land Trust Plan  

Goal #1 (Reading)

Plans for expenditures of an increased distribution:The 2013-2014 distribution in this plan is an estimate. If the actual July distribution is more than the estimate, how will additional funds be spent to implement the goals described in the plan? Please indicate the goal number(s) identified above and explain how the increased funds will further implement the action plan. Please provide an adequate explanation of academic use so that it will not be necessary to go back to the school board for approval to expend an increased distribution.

  • Additional Land Trust funds will be used to provide professional develop and to purchase teacher materials supporting student achievement and improve Tier I interventions available to all teachers in both reading, math, and science.  By addressing Tier I interventions with additional funds, this would limit our need for as many Tier II interventions.  If additional funds were substantial enough, we would hire other instructional assistants to help meet the needs of all students at Lone Peak in reading, math, and science.
