Transcript Describe how the entire staff in the building have

* All full time staff and some part time staff took part in the School
Improvement Plan. Parent Input from Surveys and discussions. Two
parents on the team.
* The 90 indicators were reviewed.
Evidence of growth and areas of concern were identified and updated.
* MEAP, DELTA Math, DIBELs Reading and Classroom data were reviewed.
• Our School Improvement team was trained in the new process with
Elizabeth Moraw facilitating. Then each member was assigned a content
area to lead small groups through the process of reviewing data and
writing goals. All staff had a voice in planning.
Each Content Area was unique
English Language Arts - different subgroups were struggling.
Writing - gaps evidenced in Free and Reduced Lunch and Gender Groups.
Reading - 80% of all Kindergarten and 1st graders had met DIBELs end of
year benchmarks by January!!!
Math - many students really struggled with fractions. Ordering fractions,
comparing fractions, and manipulating fractions is quite challenging. DELTA
Math improvements make it a more useful RtI planning tool for teachers.
Social Studies and Science - subgroups did not show unique differences in
understanding but overall the scores were dramatically lowered by new cut
scores. Teams exploring ways to bring all scores up.

• Being a Small Building means having more PART TIME staff than other
buildings. The middle school staff has changed every year since Heights
became a K-7 Building.

an Advanced Math for 7th Grade. Varied levels of ability would be better
met with more opportunities for standard and advanced classes.
