School Community Council

 
Goals and funding 2019-2020:
 
This years funds come to $100,041 of which $96,000 is budgeted to meet our two goals
 
Goal 1: Increase student reading levels through additional access of take home text, and tracking of instructional level text reading as monitored by the Developmental Reading Inventory (DRA). Grade-level goals: 1st grade 7 levels, 2nd grade 4 levels, 3rd grade - 5th grade 3 levels. These goals will be adjusted for those below and above grade level to make attainable growth goals in reading.
 
Action steps to accomplish goal 1
We will be sending books home with all students grades 1-5 to assist students in having reading books in their home
that are at their current instructional reading level. We want students reading 20 minutes a night at home. To make
this happen we need to hire an aide that will manage the take home library for 3 hours a day 5 days a week. This
person will ensure that students are doing the reading. Student reading will be kept track of on a signature sheet
that is sent home each day to track the progress of student reading The aide will give them new books as the
signatures indicate they are finished with the book.

Goal 2: 5th grade students will increase their writing and Language arts proficiency scores from the previous years scores
by 15% more students scoring proficient on the Rise state testing. They will also increase the number of students proficient
on the district writing benchmarks by 20% from the beginning of the year benchmark to the end of the year bench
mark.
Action Steps to accomplish goal 2

We will use funding to purchase an additional teacher to decrease class sizes and allow for a second language arts teacher 
in 5th grade. This will allow time dedicated to language arts to increase and allow teachers to teach to the core more deeply.
This teacher will help organize the RTI process in language arts, create common formative assessments in language arts and
writing, gather data for team collaboration meetings, and provide targeted instruction in differentiated groups. This teacher
will work closely with our current language arts teacher in gathering data and ensuring student need is driving the instruction.

The 2018-2019 goals are written below along with data from this years testing that supports these goals.  Some of the goals we set were not completely met but there was significant growth in the majority of areas we set out to improve on. 
 
Goal 1:Each grade (k-3) will increase the number of students that have reached typical or above growth by 20% from beginning of the school year to the end of the school year. Each grade in grades 3-5 will increase number of students that are proficient in the Language Arts SAGE scores by 3%.

Proficiency in the rise testing increased by 7% and the DIBELS testing if looking at the same body of students who moved from one grade to the next the percentage of students making above or typical growth grew by 7% from k- 1st, 25%from first to second and 2% from 2nd to third.  If you look at the data from how the teacher improved their overall percentage from year to year k, 2nd, and 3rd each
 
Goal 2: We will identify at risk students who need Tier III reading instruction. Each student will increase their dibels composite score by 20% by the end of the year benchmark assessment. We will hire an intervention aide to support individual and small groups of students.
 

DIBELS data: percentage of students who were identified as intensive at the beginning of the year compared to the end of the year.

Goal 4: To improve the diversity of our annual school musical we will focus on increasing the number of Native American students form 11 students in 2018 to 20 students in 2019.
 
Tryouts were advertised well in advance and no students were turned away.  All who wanted to participate did.  We purchased the play and had two teachers direct the play.  We had 16 native American students participate in the play this year.
 
Goal 5: We will improve the number of students who make typical or above progress on Dibels by 20% from beginning of the year to the end of the year. We will provide incentives for individual students as well as classes.
