School Innovation and Improvement Plan

2023-2024 School Year

Reading Goal

Outcome: Students reading on grade level by the end of 3rd Grade

Goal: By June 2024, at least 81% of students in grades 1-3 will demonstrate expected screener within-year growth, and at least 48% of students with disabilities in grades 1-3 will demonstrate on grade level reading ability as measured by the iReady screener.  

  1. Improve daily, systematic, explicit instruction in phonological awareness, phonics, and morphology in the core language arts block.
  2. Increase the use of data to plan instruction and monitor progress for students demonstrating risk.
  3. Expand the use of conversation structures to increase academic talk and build relationships among students.

Mathematics Goal

Outcomes: Growth and performance on state/national/international assessments in math. Successful completion of Algebra 1 by 8th Grade.

Goal: By June 2024, 69% of students in grades 1-6 will demonstrate expected screener within year growth in math as measured by spring iReady assessments.  

  1. Use conversation structures to increase academic talk between students.
  2. Increase teachers implementation strategies related to Shift 8: from looking for correct answers towards revealing student thinking.
  3. Increase teacher implementation of explicit instruction and other components of effective mathematics intervention.

Academic Growth & Excellence Goal

Outcome: Growth with evidence in at least one self-identified Portrait of a Graduate skills.

Goal: By June 2024, 100% of students in grades K-6 will complete a Portrait of a Graduate Presentation of Learning (POG-POL) in which they show growth of one POG attribute (Communicator).

  1. Teachers explicitly name and notice POG attributes.
  2. Teachers work with students to create a portfolio of evidence and use this to do at least one presentation of learning regarding POG attribute of communicator by the end of the school year.
