Conestoga Magnet School Improvement Goals


 

District Intended Summative Outcome:

Increase the number of elementary students identified as “On-Track” and “College and Career Ready” on NSCAS Summative Assessments ELA will increase compared to the previous year. Spring 2019 rate 31.3%; Goal rate for Spring 2020 38.1%

School ELA Goals:

1.     NSCAS Summative Goal

For NSCAS ELA summative assessments, we will increase the percent of students who are identified as “On-Track” or “College and Career Ready” by 6.9%. Spring 2019 rate31.3%; Goal rate for Spring 2020 38.1%

2.     MAP Interim Assessment Goals

a.     For Spring ELA MAP Growth Assessment, we will increase the percent of students identified as “At” or “Above” the grade level norm by 6.6%.  Spring 2019 rate 34%; Goal rate for Spring 2020 40.6%

Strategy(ies) (add AQUESTT Tenets after each strategy):

All students will receive ELA instruction utilizing targeted high probability strategies specific to ELA:

All students will receive the guaranteed and viable ELA curriculum as written in the A+ OPS Curriculum Guides for ELA using a balanced literacy approach. 

1.     Post, unpack, and refence daily student-friendly reading goals in the 5 pillars (phonemic awareness, phonics, vocabulary, fluency, and comprehension) that contain the thinking levels and skills are expected to master during the lesson in every classroom.

2.     Use the core resources (Journeys, Storytown, Collections, Being A Writer) to plan and deliver instruction based on state standards (College and Career Ready, Assessment)

3.     Provide daily guided reading instruction using the Literacy Continuum (College and Career Ready, Assessment)

District Intended Summative Outcome:

-Increase the use of MTSS-B Essential Components and Effective Classroom Practices to increase learning time and improve classroom behavior. Resolutions for events entered in Infinite Campus will be reduced by 3% using the Behavior Dashboard. (District-wide, resolutions decreased by 3% during the 17-18 school year.)

 

School MTSS-B Goal:

Tier 1- Increase the use of Effective Classroom Practices and school wide use of specific positive feedback as measured on the Self-Assessment Survey (SAS) and Tiered Fidelity Inventory (TFI). Schools will show a minimum increase of 10% in each SAS system: Schoolwide, Non-Classroom and Classroom to reduce out of class resolutions.

 

Strategies:

·       Maintain a Tier 1 team that will meet monthly to monitor the fidelity of Tier 1 practices.

·       Use the MTSS-B Tier 1 Action Plan to guide and document Tier 1 implementation and fidelity.

·       Attend Tier 1 Trainings.

·       Identify a Building Coach for Tier 1 who will attend six meeting led by district coaches.

·       Use schoolwide management strategies that meet the needs of all students with common language used consistently across all settings. This includes teaching specific expected behaviors and providing frequent positive reinforcement for expected behavior.

·       Staff will consistently follow the school’s Behavior Flowchart to address behavior incidents.

Success Criteria:

·       Staff will teach, model and practice behavior expectations using the lessons and language from the school’s behavior matrix and Practices and Procedures Lesson Plans

·       Teachers will use a 4 to 1 positive to corrective ratio when providing feedback to students

·       School-wide acknowledgement system used to reinforce student behavior.  Class Dojo, Conestoga Cash, Conestoga Store, Quarterly Dojo celebrations

·       Hold daily classroom meetings to create togetherness, connection, and unity

·       Identify, differentiate between, and use Tier I, Tier II, and Tier III behavior supports for students as appropriate

·       Use a tiered intervention approach through the SAT process

·       Students will respond to classroom managed behavior strategies, reducing the amount of lost instructional time

 

Progress Monitoring:

The MTSS-B Tier 1 team will:

·       Monitor the implementation of Tier 1 practices through annual administration of the Self-Assessment Survey (SAS) and the Tiered Fidelity Inventory (TFI)

·       Use the Behavior Dashboard and other forms of data to determine trends in student behavior

·       Utilize the SAT process

 

Monitor and Adjust:

The MTSS-B Tier 1 Team will:

·       Review Big Five behavior data and create and monitor monthly Solution Plans to increase positive student behavior school wide.

·       Make needed adjustments to lesson plans, acknowledgement system and other practices.

·       Provide on-going professional development based on needs identified by the team

·       Monitor and encourage the use of the incentive system

District Intended Wellness Outcomes:

Increase the number of wellness strategies implemented district-wide by 2%.

 

School Wellness Goal:

 Conestoga Elementary will provide support for students in making healthy lifestyle choices by implementing systems to aid in decreasing the average Body Mass Index score on annual screenings.  During the 2019-2020 school year, there will be a 5% decrease in the number of at-risk students (BMI 85%-94%) as well as high risk students (BMI 95% or greater) from the 2018 – 2019 school year as evaluated by the annual Health Appraisal screenings performed by the school nurse.

Strategy (add AQUESTT Tenets/AdvancEd after each strategy):

 

§  Conestoga will create, communicate and implement activities focused on improving the overall Nutrition and Physical Fitness environment (Educational Opportunities and Access; Educator Effectiveness)

Success Criteria:

§  Grab and Go Breakfast

§  Healthy snacks for school celebrations

§  Monthly Wellness activities for staff

§  Lunch recess increased by 5 minutes for all students

§  Walking track available for students, staff and Community

§  School community participates in the National Walk at Lunch program in April

§  Behavior celebrations include a physical component in place of food items (dance, skating, bounce houses, etc)

§  BMI monitoring by the nurse – results sent home to parents/referral to a medical doctor if BMI is high

§  Vision care, glasses provided for students in need and hearing screenings

§  Dental screening, teledentistry, and Creighton Dental Services (sealants, fluoride and screenings) – referral to dentist if needed

§  Human growth and Development classes taught to students in grades 4 – 6 by the school nurse

Monitoring Progress: (Documentation should be kept in the Wellness Binder)

§  Agendas, sign in sheets, and meeting minutes from school wellness committee meetings

§  Wellness Activity Documentation (e.g., number of staff members who participated in a staff meeting in discussion of a wellness topic.)
