Trust Lands Final Report 2015-16
Trust Lands Final Report
Language Arts: Improve student proficiency in language arts by providing more opportunities for students to read and write across the curriculum as well as participate in intervention groups when needed. We will monitor student progress closely to include common formative assessments for their grade level guaranteed curriculum, our core reading program unit tests, DIBELS tests, and small group assessments. From these assessments, we want to provide extra interventions for students that are not meeting benchmarks, provide a take-home reading book for students, as well as provide small group opportunities for our high ability learners. Math: Hire one interventionist to provide support and tier 2 interventions for some of our most at-risk math students.
For Goal 1 we were able to:
Continue implementation of our STEAM program (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, and Math). Give all students the opportunity to participate in art by hiring a visual arts specialist to teach the art core.
For Goal 2 we were able to:
Hire a paraprofessional to provide visual art instruction to all children in the school every other week.
- Hire a paraprofessional 12 hours a week to give support to our below level learners in grades 2nd – 5th.
- Hire a paraprofessional 14 hours a week to run our take-home library so all K-2nd grade students, as well as 3rd -5th grade students as selected by the teacher, can have a leveled book to read at home each night. (This includes increasing our leveled library to provide a Chinese take-home book for our dual immersion students).
- Hire a paraprofessional 10 hours a week to help in our Extended-Day Kindergarten class (for our 12 most at-risk kindergarteners).
- Hire a paraprofessional 7 hours a week to help with our most at-risk students, including some students who need support in behavior, to help them be successful in the classroom and other areas of the building and playground.
- Hire a Dixie State University SEE student to give support to a split classroom teacher (4th/5th grade) This teacher will also oversee the High Ability program.
- Hire a paraprofessional to provide interventions for our high ability learners.
