Goal #1

Goal

Academic Areas

  • Reading

Measurements

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

We will use SAGE comparison. Our 2014 results were 38% in Language Arts, we want a 2% increase. We will compare the K-3 DIBELS average from 2014 which was 80% and look for a 2% increase.

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

Our Sage Language results in 2014-2015 school year were 34%. In 2015-2016 school year our Language results were 37% (showing an increase of 3%). 
Our Dibels average in 2014 was 80%, compared with our 2015 average of 82%.

Action Plan Steps

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

1. Valley View Elementary will continue to use a push-in program to assist with reading. Students will be grouped using results of DIBELS testing and other benchmarking to determine reading levels. Paraprofessionals will provide extra support along with teachers to ensure that groups are small and to provide more individualized attention to students. Our reading coach will oversee this program. Groups are fluid as students move up and down in ability. Along with this instruction time four days a week, students will also receive reading instruction in their classrooms using the Treasures Reading Program. Teachers will provide both whole group and small group instruction in their classrooms. 2. As a school, Valley View staff will receive professional development from the district on Rigor and Common Assessments. School specific professional development will focus on Four Square Writing, Common Assessments and Collaborative Team Coaching. A handful of staff members will also attend the MTSS conference in June and the Solution Tree PLC conference in November. 3. We will continue to have the Latinos in Action in our building working one on one with our students struggling with reading. In addition, Valley View participates in the Road to Success reading program to encourage students to read outside of class time.

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

Teachers and paraprofessionals at Valley View Elementary provided extra support (interventions in small group settings) to provide more individualized attention to students below benchmark levels four days a week. Students also received reading instruction in their classrooms using the Treasures Reading Program, both in whole group and small group settings. We also had volunteer tutors provided by our Star Tutor Program, assisting and reading with students below benchmark levels, four days a week.
