Summary of 2019/2020 Land Trust Funds Used

Edison Elementary implemented school-wide targeted interventions in reading. Interventions took place four-days per week for a minimum of 30 minutes for all students. Because of the Covid 19 Pandemic we were not able to have an End of Year Acadience Benchmark assessment.  Our Beginning of the Year Acadience Composite Score given in August was 39% proficient.  Our Middle of the Year Acadience Composite given in January was 51%.  Though we didn’t meet our goal of 70%, we believe that the growth we made in  five months was impressive.  

School Plan 2020/2021

Goal #1

Goal

Edison Elementary will implement school-wide targeted interventions in reading. Interventions will take place four-days per week for a minimum of 30 minutes for all students. Acadience Composite reading proficiency will increase from 45% to 70% by April 30, 2021. Reading growth will be monitored through beginning, middle and ending Acadience benchmarks, as well as monthly Acadience progress monitoring.

 

Academic Areas

  • Reading

Measurements

Acadience benchmark assessment at grade level
Acadience monthly progress monitoring

Action Plan Steps

All students will participate in school-wide interventions.  Students will receive extra instruction  based on identified need.  Interventions available to students include:  foundational reading, reading comprehension, writing/research skills, and extended learning.

A coordinator will oversee implementation of the intervention program, facilitate progress monitoring, train and collaborate with para professionals and classroom teachers to ensure program success.

Paraprofessionals and classroom teachers will facilitate interventions.

Baseline assessments will be completed with monthly progress monitoring throughout the year.  This data will be used to determine effectiveness of instruction and next steps for students.

Funding Changes

There are times when the planned expenditures in the goals of a plan are provided by the district, a grant, or another unanticipated funding source leaving additional funds to implement the goals. If additional funds are available, how will the council spend the funds to implement the goals in this plan?

Additional funds will be used to implement school-wide interventions--certified teacher, para professionals.

Edison Elementary Student Success Plan  and TSSA Goal

2020/2021

Edison Elementary’s Student Success Plan and TSSA Goals are the same.  100% of all students will have an effect size for growth of .6 as measured by Acadience and Reading Inventory (RI) assessments as outlined below.  These goals are both connected to our Land Trust Goal of all students receiving targeted interventions in reading and writing.

 

COLLABORATION WITH FAMILIES AND COMMUNITY 

HIGH EXPECTATIONS FOR ALL STUDENTS 

RESPONDING EFFECTIVELY TO INDIVIDUAL’S NEEDS 

PROVIDING A SAFE, HEALTHY ENVIRONMENT 

In three years, we will have safe, positive relationships between parents, teachers, students, administration and community 

 

We will work to obtain deep knowledge and understanding of our Edison community. 

 

Through these relationships, we will build agency, efficacy and respect. 

In three years, we will have all students at grade level proficiency in reading and writing. 

In three years, all students will be actively engaged in school-wide, as well as grade level interventions/extensions based on individual needs.  These interventions/extensions will be systematic and fluid. 

In three years, we will implement a school-wide Social and Emotional plan that focuses on proactive behavior practices.  These practices will focus on:  Identity and Agency, Public Spirit, Social Skills, Cognitive Regulation, and Emotional Regulation.  As we facilitate student and teacher development of these skills, we will demonstrate that we care for the learning of each person. 

 

We will coordinate Social and Emotional skills and strategies with school-wide PBIS behavior expectations and goals.

 

We will cultivate a growth mindset and emphasize safety in mistakes. 

 

School-Wide Goals: 

SMART Goal #1 – September 8, 2020 – January 15, 2020 

Culture/SEL

Gap 

Academic 

100% of all classrooms will post, explain, and refer to the four Zones of Regulation model daily.  Teachers will use the implementation and fidelity checklist from the Four Zones of Regulation curriculum.

Fluency

100% of Special Education and ELL students will have an effect size for growth of .6 in reading fluency and/or accuracy as measured by Acadience ORF, accuracy and Composite scores.  Progress monitoring will focus on ORF and Accuracy.

 

Special Education Teacher will provide copy of students’ IEP goals to classroom teacher.

 

Students will receive targeted reading interventions for 35 minutes per day, Monday through Thursday in addition to their Tier I, Tier II, and small group instruction.

Rules of Order and Procedure  

This template was developed at the request of schools and districts to meet a new requirement for school community councils to adopt Rules of Order and Procedure (53A-1a-108.1).  The template may be reviewed and amended by councils to meet their needs or councils may develop their own.

 

To promote ethical behavior and civil discourse each council member shall:

  • Attend council meetings on time and prepared
  • Make decisions with the needs of students as the main objective
  • Listen to and value diverse opinions
  • Be sure the opinions of those you represent are included in discussions
  • Expect accountability and be prepared to be accountable
  • Act with integrity

 

Rules of Procedure:

All meetings are open to the public and the public is welcome to attend.

The agenda of each upcoming meeting with draft minutes of the prior meeting will be made available to all council members at least one week in advance, will be posted on the school website and made available in the main office.  The agenda will include the date, time and location of the meeting.

Minutes will be kept of all meetings, prepared in draft format for approval at the next scheduled meeting.

The council will prepare a timeline for the school year that includes due dates for all required reporting and other activities/tasks that the council agrees to assume or participate in.  The timeline will assist in preparation of agendas to be sure the council accomplishes their work in a timely manner.

The chair conducts the meetings, makes assignments and requests reports on assignments.  In the absence of the chair the vice-chair shall conduct meetings.

Meetings shall be conducted and action taken according to very simplified rules of parliamentary procedure as required in 53A-1a-108.1(9)(i).  Items on the agenda take priority over other discussions coming before the council.  Council action will be taken by motions and voting with votes and motions recorded in the minutes.

A motion (or an action to be taken by the council) is stated as a motion.  Someone else on the council “seconds” the motion indicating that at least one other person on the council feels the motion is worthy of discussion.  Then the council members may provide input and discussion as called upon by the chair.  When discussion seems complete the chair may call for a vote on the motion.  Or when a member of the council “calls the previous question” (a motion to end discussion of the first motion), a second is required and then, without discussion the chair calls for a vote that must pass by 2/3.  If the vote on the previous question fails the council goes back to discussing the first motion.  If the motion to call the previous question passes, the chair directly calls for a vote on the first motion.  A vote to call the previous question is usually used to move business along.

Attached is a chart that could be used if the council feels they would like to use additional motions of Parliamentary Procedure in their meetings.

  • A tie vote is a lost vote.
  • A main motion may be amended.
  • Nominations can be closed by saying, “I move to close nominations.”
  • Most motions are main motions.
  • A point of order is offered when there is some question if procedure had been followed correctly.
  • To stop debate or discussion on a motion and force the vote a member would say, “I move the previous
    question.”  This requires a second and a 2/3 vote.
  • Hasty action may be corrected by use of the motion to reconsider. This motion may be made only
    by one who voted on the prevailing side.
  • A person who made the motion may withdraw the same motion.
