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.

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.

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.

School Emergency Procedures

Posted in News & Announcements

Brookwood Elementary
 School Emergency Procedures 

Guidelines for parents to follow in case of a school emergency

Brookwood Elementary is committed to providing a safe environment for students, staff, parents and visitors. We work closely with district and local safety officials – police, fire, emergency medical services, and public health – in order to ensure our school is well prepared for an emergency. We have developed procedures that serve as a guide to help staff and our public safety partners respond swiftly should a crisis occur at our school.

As a parent, how can you prepare for a school emergency?

Provide accurate emergency contact information (including email) to office and notify the school if this information changes. 

Tune in to local television and radio stations for news alerts. During an emergency, we can anticipate that phone lines into the affected school(s) may be blocked. In order not to interfere with emergency responders, we ask that parents wait to receive important information from school officials before going to the school or scene of an emergency. You can be confident that accurate and timely information will be released to parents, the public, and the media during any emergency incident via the Canyons District Communications Department. 


What is Lockdown and Shelter-in-Place


“Lockdown” is a common school security practice used to secure a building. It will be implemented in the event of a campus emergency or crisis that requires students and staff to seek safety within the building. During this type of emergency, the safest place for students is locked securely in their classrooms inside the school building. All outside doors and all classroom doors will be locked if the school is in Lockdown. During a Lockdown, no one except uniformed law enforcement will be allowed to enter the building. This means that parents will not be admitted and students will not be released to parents while the school is under Lockdown. No one will leave the building unless under the direction of emergency responders or until after local authorities give the all clear. 

As the situation demands, the school may be put under a “Shelter-in-Place” order.  This procedure is used in the event that a threat is possible, but not imminent.  All outside doors will be locked if the school is in Shelter-in-Place.  Classes and movement within the school will carry on as usual with the exception that no students or staff will be permitted to leave the building.  As in a Lockdown, no one except uniformed law enforcement will be allowed to enter the building. This means that parents will not be admitted and students will not be released to parents while the school is under a Shelter-in-Place.

What will my child experience during a Lockdown or Shelter-in-Place?

A Lockdown or Shelter-in-Place begins with an announcement instructing all students to either remain in the building and/or remain in the room that they are in or immediately enter the nearest classroom which is manned by a staff member. During a Lockdown, students remain in their locked classrooms while authorities secure the school. During a Shelter-in-Place, students carry on activities inside the school while all students and staff are required to stay inside the building.  When authorities are confident the building is secure, an allclear announcement will be made.

If the school is evacuated, how will I be able to locate my child?

Evacuation procedures are implemented during an emergency situation, such as a fire, earthquake or other disaster, when it is determined that students and staff will be safer outside the building or at a location away from the campus. If at all safe and possible, we will assemble the students on the field south of the school. 

Parents or guardians will be notified through the automated School Messenger system (Skylert).  They will be directed to a specific location where they will be required to show proper identification. Remember, a student can only be released to a parent/guardian or an adult who is documented as an emergency contact. If you are a noncustodial parent, you must be listed in your child’s emergency contact information as a guardian and you must show proper identification.  

Brookwood Elementary is prepared for an emergency.

As a parent, you should feel confident in knowing that we provide, on an annual basis, emergency response training to all school personnel. We have identified staff members with assigned roles and responsibilities to perform during an emergency. We conduct emergency drills throughout the school year, so that students and staff are aware of the most effective and safe emergency responses.

If you see something, say something

Ensuring school safety is everyone’s responsibility – staff, students, parents and the entire community. Please report any safety concerns you may have to the principal.
