School Activities to meet our Goals

  1. Develop Professional Learning Communities (PLCs) to learn, develop, and implement research-based  academic resources including intervention and enrichment strategies, instructional technology practices, behavior interventions, and social emotional learning strategies to meet the needs of all learners.

  2. Increase access to texts for students in order to ensure that they are engaged in a text rich environment.

  3. Provide students access to online, evidence-based, Math & ELA intervention & practice programs

  4. Professional development to highlight effective strategies supporting MTSS for all learners (poverty, culture, ESOL, Migrant, Gifted, RTI, student with disabilities, McKinney-Vento, etc.)

  5. Provide instructional resources and supplies across contents

  6. Develop instructional activities and assessments to align with rigor of standards

  7. Allotment of time in school schedule in daily WIN class as well as before/after/Saturday/summer school  to support ESOL, tiered interventions, and enrichments for all  students

  8. Promote school wide positive learning environment through teaching of behavior expectations (PBIS), by offering career connections/opportunities, and high school transition activities  to all students.

Comprehensive Needs Assessment: A thorough review of data was conducted throughout the 2022-2023 school year in order to create a comprehensive needs assessment. This needs assessment took into account information on the academic achievement of children in relation to the challenging State academic standards, particularly the needs of those children who are failing or are at-risk of failing. Data sources that were analyzed included universal screeners, state assessments, behavioral information from Educators’ Handbook, grades, attendance logs, surveys, and other feedback from faculty, students, parents, and community stakeholders. The needs of the following groups were considered: students from economically disadvantaged backgrounds, English Learners, migratory students and families, students with disabilities, immigrant students, and students from a variety of demographic subgroups. The professional learning needs of staff members in order to help support the needs of these students and families were also considered. This comprehensive needs assessment process culminated in a two-day district retreat in May of 2023, during which district and school staff worked with a variety of stakeholders in order to develop an initial draft of the schoolwide improvement plan, including reform strategies for addressing identified needs. Identified needs included the following:

  • A focus on literacy--ELA and Math

  • A focus on whole child with supports for social, emotional learning

  • Professional development for teachers on implementation of quality instructional strategies and data analysis

  •  Coaching to improve strategies with academics and behavior strategies for all students

Sources (Data and Process)

  • Universal screener data (iReady) and progress monitoring data

  • Student survey data (SEL)

  • Course grades and common assessments

  • Milestones (ELA & Math)

  • Access scores (ESOL) and TPC

  • School discipline data

Identified needs: The following is a list of identified needs: literacy growth in ELA and Math; supports for social, emotional learning for all students (including English Learners, Students with Disabilities, McKinney-Vento and Migrant Students); professional development for teachers on implementation of quality instructional strategies, behavior strategies and data analysis, and coaching to improve effective use of academics and behavior strategies for all students.
Schoolwide Plan Development:  The schoolwide plan has been developed during a 1-year period. It was developed with the involvement of stakeholders including parents, teachers, school and district administrators, counselors, and community partners. Limited involvement with community partners was due to COVID-19 school closure.The plan will remain in effect for the 2023-2024 school year and will be monitored monthly during Principal meetings and School Governance Council meetings. The plan will be revised as necessary in order to ensure that all students are provided the opportunity to meet the challenging State academic standards. The plan will be reviewed quarterly with faculty and staff.
