Mid-Year Celebrations, Concerns, and Possible New Innovations 2017-2018

A List of the Continuous School Improvement Plan Adjustments That Were Made

English scores are more promising overall this year in comparison to the previous school year.  There are still areas that need improvement  including: answering higher level questions beyond the knowledge letter, making inferences, understanding text features and structures, VOCABULARY, grammar, writing with supporting details.

Writing across all areas is a school-wide expectation and is reviewed and discussed in post observations. Students are writing weekly in English classes.


New Innovations:

* Reading and Writing for Success support class  will be taught by former English teacher, Sandra Ludwig.

*Revision Assistant online program will be piloted by the eighth grade English teachers during the second half of the school year. This program is designed to give students informative feedback on their writing and suggestions for improvement in areas that are weak.

*Teachers in all content areas will complete a 45 day planner to identify specific strategies to assist with remediation for students in tiers 2 and 3.

*Staff members are working towards becoming Level 1 Google Certified in preparation for the one to one technology students will use next year to work on  their personalized learning goals.

*Teachers continue to incorporate Thinking Maps and CRISS strategies in their lessons. Students have been observed identifying the thinking map that correlates with their specific writing assignment.

*21st Century grant program provides funding for before and after school assistance with homework and work completion. Students also have opportunities to explore colleges and careers through this program.
