A Snap Shot of Westfield’s School Improvement Process
Goals Affective: By the end of school year , WF Students will demonstrate an overall 3% decrease in bullying and harassment as measured by office referrals. Cognitive: At the end of school year, WF Students will maintain scores that meet or exceed in Math and Reading as measured on the Measures of Academic Progress Assessments and ISAT.
Action Plans MAP Scores –Goal Setting/RIT band Work Curriculum Mapping –Gaps –Math drop in unit Z-Scores –Bubble Kid Program/Accelerated Extended Response –Math/Reading
Interventions Students identified in team meetings that were at the 30 th percentile and below based on Z scores from primarily MAP scores, in addition to ISAT, OLSAT, and teacher recommendation. Rocket Math: –Math fact program On average, students have improved 4 levels in first quarter. Reading Plus: –Structured silent reading program designed to improve reading comprehension skills. Students have averaged a two level gain on the reading program for 1 st quarter.
Interventions Continued Bubble Groups: –Students are provided with additional instructional time focused on math and/or reading depending on the students need. Students also focus on test taking strategies. 6 th grade Reading: 100% improved, 6 th grade math:100%, 7 th grade read: 80%, 7 th grade math: 100%, 8 th grade reading: 92% and 8 th grade math: 100% RIT Band Work: –Students work on writing goals, identifying strengths and weaknesses, and build skills in areas of weakness based on their MAP scores.
Interventions Continued Supportive Reading: –Students are provided with additional instructional time focused on building their reading comprehension skills. Study Skills Group: –Students receive instruction on building study skills such as organization, time management, and test taking skills. Quiet Lunch: –Students receive extra time to complete work with supervision.
Training Monitoring Reading Plus: –Special Education Teachers, Parapros, Grade level teachers, Support Staff, and Administration –Summer session and a half day inservice –Ongoing contact with Reading plus coordinator Rocket Math: –Parapros and Special Education Teachers AIMSweb: –Special Education teachers, Supportive Reading, Support staff, and Parapros –Natsuki provides ongoing training and serves as a consultant to staff Book Studies: –BLT: Ahead of the Curve –All staff: Rethinking Homework –Select Staff: Trouble with Boys Reading Plus: –Special Education Staff, Natsuki, Parapros and Support Staff –Monitored through student conferences, program built in data collection, direct teaching lessons of weak areas, and AIMSweb (Maze and RCBM) Rocket Math: –Parapros and Special Education teachers –Chart in which students progress is collected AIMSweb: –Progress monitoring tool for reading, writing and math Book Studies: –Ongoing discussions in team meetings
Specific Goals/Plans for May 1.ISAT Bubble Groups 2.M.A.P. Testing 3.RTI Interventions – may need to know AIMS Web 4.Rocket Math – need background 5.Reading Plus – need background 6.Building Goal Setting Sheets
Curriculum Mapping Continue to examine maps to see gaps, overlaps, and needs.
Our Plans for the Future ISAT Bubble Groups Set up a time to train our paraprofessionals to teach the program. Analyze our ISAT data. Identify students who could be part of the Bubble Groups. (below-to-meets) Schedule intervention times to determine when students are pulled out of class.
