School Achievement Goals

Major Initiatives, Actions and Services to Improve Student Achievement

Goal 1: Student Achievement

  • The percentage of students in grades 3-6 scoring in levels 1 and 2 ("not meeting State Standards") on the 2021-22 Smarter Balanced Assessment Consortium (SBAC) CAASPP assessment will decrease by a minimum of 10% from the 2018-19 ELA and Mathematics results. 
  • For each subgroup, all students will meet or exceed their typical growth target score, and we will increase the number of English Learners demonstrating progress toward English proficiency.

  • Grade level teams identify and develop guaranteed and viable standards and monitor student progress towards mastery.
  • Grade level teams implement standards based curriculum and teaching practices to teach Common Core State Standards.
  • Teachers provide tier two interventions for students who need additional and/or targeted support.
  • All teachers participate in staff development days to monitor instructional pacing and student progress to plan additional effective teaching. 
  • Teachers will receive release time to analyze student data and share best practices to support all students’ growth. 
  • Staff professional development to implement Balanced Literacy components such as Grand Conversation, and Reading and Writing Workshop. 
  • Vertical articulation across grade levels to understand student growth and the progression of standards. 
  • Instructional Aide support in primary grades to help with assessments and small group instruction.
