It can be difficult to stay involved an monitor your children's tech use and screen time.  How can you keep up with so many different devices and apps that are constantly changing?  The struggle is real.  Thankfully, many devices now have parental controls built in to the operating system, and there are lots of options for apps, software and networking devices to help us conquer this beast.  The video playlist below shows some of these features and options, and the article "Everything You Need To Know About Parental Controls", by Caroline Knorr, provides plenty of suggestions to help you get started, or enhance what you are already doing.

Posted in News & Announcements

School Plan 2019-2020 - Brookwood EL

Goal #1

Goal 

90% of Brookwood students (grades 1-3) will meet or exceed proficiency as measured by the Acadience Reading Assessment in spring 2020. 80% of Brookwood students (grades 4-5) will meet or exceed the end of year proficiency lexile range as measure by Reading Inventory assessment in spring 2020.

Academic Areas 

  • Reading

Measurements 

90% of Brookwood students (grades 1-3) will meet or exceed proficiency as measured by the Acadience Reading Assessment in spring 2020. 80% of Brookwood students (grades 4-5) will meet or exceed the end of year proficiency lexile range as measure by Reading Inventory assessment in spring 2020. Progress toward our goal will be measured by Acadience Reading and Reading Inventory assessments conducted in fall 2019 and winter 2020.

Action Plan Steps 

Incoming students will be screened using Acadience Reading, Reading Inventory and/or the Great Leaps Placement Assessment ($900).  Students will be provided interventions based on identified needs. Tiered interventions will be provided for all students during skills based instructional rotations, facilitated by the classroom teacher as well as reading interventionists .  In addition to tiered SBI time, identified students will receive intervention outside of the classroom in a 1:1 or small group setting.  Progress will be routinely monitored and interventions adjusted according to the data.  Using School LAND Trust funds ($40,500), instructional assistants will be hired to progress monitor and provide targeted instruction for students reading below benchmark.  Instructional assistants will be trained and directly supervised by the school achievement coach. Substitutes will be hired ($1500) so teachers can participate in coaching cycles and meet as teams to improve their capacity in literacy whole group/skills groups/data analysis,  backward design and to build understanding of core standards and complexity as they relate to building reading skills.

Goal #2

Goal 

85% of Brookwood students will meet or exceed proficiency as measured by the Acadience Math Assessment in spring 2020.

Academic Areas 

  • Mathematics

Measurements 

Currently, 83% of students in first through fifth grade are scoring at or above benchmark on the Acadience Math assessment. Our goal is for 85% of students to be on benchmark by May of 2020. Progress toward our goal will be measured by Acadience Math composite assessments conducted in fall 2019 and winter 2020.

Action Plan Steps 

Incoming students will be screened using Acadience Math Assessment in fall of 2019.  Students scoring below benchmark on the math composite will receive interventions targeted at specific math skills. Tiered interventions will be provided for all students during skills based instructional rotations, facilitated by the classroom teacher.  In addition to tiered SBI time, identified students will receive intervention outside of the classroom in a 1:1 or small group setting.  Progress will be routinely monitored and interventions adjusted according to the data.  Using School LAND Trust funds ($11,000), instructional assistants will be hired to progress monitor and provide targeted instruction for students scoring below benchmark in math.  The instructional assistants will be trained and directly supervised by the school achievement coach.

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?

Any excess funds will be used to support goals #1 and #2. We will purchase additional intervention materials, hire substitutes to increase time for teachers to analyze data and plan for Skill Based Instructional time, and/or update technology used for progress monitoring and data collection.

Explanation for Amendment
 
A substantial increase in the 2018-19 allocation left us with an excess of just over $5000. This gave us an opportunity to fund an instructional assistant to progress monitor and provide targeted intervention for students performing below benchmark in math.
