Goal #1

Goal

To improve students’ understanding an performance in Language Arts, we will purchase the Reach for Reading program. This will not be purchased solely from the school Land Trust, but rather from multiple sources including the Land Trust.

Academic Areas

  • Reading
  • Writing
  • Science
  • Social Studies

Measurements

We will use the built in assessments to monitor the students' progress.

Action Plan Steps

We will first purchase the materials.

Teachers will then begin training on using the new reading program over the summer and training will continue throughout the year from both district personnel, and school personnel. 

The teachers will share with each other as they use the program to discuss successes, and possible changes to help one another. 

The teachers will teach the concepts as outlined in the program and use the assessments provided to check for students understanding of the concepts.

Expenditures

Category Description Estimated Cost
Total: $22,000
Textbooks (641)

We will use $22,000.00 to pay for a small portion of the $105,000+ cost of the program. The remainder will be pulled from various accounts already approved by our Business Administrator.

$22,000

Goal #2

Measurements

Measurements in visual arts are based mainly on participation and effort.  We plan on having all of our students attend and participate in an art class once per week for 30 minutes.

Action Plan Steps

Students will all rotate through the Art classroom for a minimum of 30 minutes per week, where they will receive instruction from the art teacher. 

The art teacher will meet with the classroom teachers to discuss current and upcoming subjects in LA and STEM. She will then write lesson plans to incorporate her art curriculum with LA and STEM concepts.

Goal #3

Goal

We will purchase a coding program that we will use in the computer lab during their regularly scheduled time in the computer lab, but we will provide additional time for students to participate after school as well.

Academic Areas

  • Technology

Measurements

We will evaluate how much the students are progressing by how many courses they are able to pass off.

Action Plan Steps

We will purchase Code Changers and have the teachers and lab aide trained by them on how to teach the concepts and how to monitor the students' progress.

The students will then be taught the concepts and work independently on writing the different forms of coding being taught. 

Teachers and/or the lab aide will intervene and reteach as needed to help the students master the current coding concept. 

Student work will be shared with parents through the links provided by the program.

Expenditures

Category Description Estimated Cost
Total: $5,000

To increase students levels of understanding of science concepts, by creating virtual field trips in our computer lab.

Academic Areas

  • Technology
  • Science
  • Social Studies

Measurements

We will use the teachers common formative assessments to determine our students' levels of understanding the concepts. These assessments are based on the State Core Standards the teachers cover. By using these assessments we will know the assessment is relevant to standards being taught.  Students that are not proficient in the standards, will receive additional instruction from their classroom teacher, and/or other teachers on their grade level.

Action Plan Steps
