Increase participation and performance in rigorous course work (Honors, Advanced Placement, Dual Enrollment and Industry Certification) 6. Increase participation and performance on PERT, SAT and ACT 7. Increase AMO percentages for all subgroups (Achievement Gap) 8. Increase the graduation rate 9. Increase attendance rate 10. Decrease disciplinary infractions The School Improvement Plan (SIP) is the written plan of how we will reach our goals each year. The critical elements include: Organize: Stakeholders plan and assess needs based on data. Plan: Stakeholders set goals and objectives, identify strategies and measures of success. Implement: Implement activities and monitor progress. Sustain: Identify success of current plan, evaluate and adjust to sustain growth. Florida Standards are a set of high- quality academic standards in mathematics and English language arts/literacy (ELA). These standards outline what a student should know and be able to do at the end of each grade. 6 Key Elements for Instruction: 1. Knowledge and Use of Florida Standards 2. Common and Collaborative Planning Time 3. Interdisciplinary Content Integration 4. Frequency of Project-Based Learning 5. Student Collaboration 6. Integrated Technology The guiding principles of Professional Learning Communities (PLC) govern the behavior of our school professionals. The big ideas are: Focus on Learning: All students can learn and we are responsible to ensure learning occurs. Focus on Collaborative Culture: Time is specifically reserved for collaboration on teaching and learning. Focus on Results: Effectiveness is measured by results, not intent. The Florida’s Continuous Improvement Model (FCIM) is a systematic process for planning, teaching, assessing and re-evaluating results. It is the road map that directs our actions. Plan Do Check Act Multi-Tiered System of Supports is a problem solving model that represents the integration of MTSS for academics and MTSS for behavior into a unified model of service. The basic problem- solving components include: 1. Problem Identification 2. Problem Analysis 3. Intervention Design 4. Response to Instruction/ Intervention Lesson Study provides a structure for teachers to collaboratively plan lessons share, observe, record and analyze data to improve instruction. The key concepts are: 1. Collaborative Planning 2. Lesson Observation by Teachers 3. Data Collection and Analysis Guided by Student Thinking, Learning, Engagement and Behavior 4. Reflection, Refinement and Re- teaching as Necessary Personalized Learning (PL) is a system that cultivates independence and self- governance of learning expectations through the expansion of choice and inclusion of voice in a flexible learning environment. PL Key Elements: 1. Student- directed Learning 2.Learner Profiles and Paths 3. Competency- based Learning 4. Flexible Learning Environments 5. Structures of Accountability, Continuous Improvement and Innovation

Bell Ringer: Getting To Know You. Read Unit C, Classroom Management in The First Days of School. Professional Education Competencies Overview I DO Define the Florida Educator Accomplished Practices (FEAPs) and PEC Portfolio requirements. WE DO Organize and interact with the FEAPs to create artifacts to satisfy the PEC elements requirements. YOU DO Demonstrate and compile artifacts/ evidence into your PEC binder. August 6, 2014 Learning Goal: Learners will be able to identify and unwrap the Florida Educational Accomplished Practices(FEAPs) which supports successful completion of the PEC portfolio. Objectives Learners will demonstrate an understanding of the FEAPS common language, and develop artifacts that satisfy the PEC Portfolio requirements. Shifting Gears Benchmarks: TEAM Domain 1: Classroom Strategies and Behaviors Domain 2: Planning and Preparing Domain 3: Reflecting on Teaching Domain 4: Collegiality and Professionalism, NEXT STEPS: Essential Question: How do we revolutionize the way we teach, lead, and learn for 21st century success? Common Language: FEAP (Florida Educator Accomplished Practices) PEC (Professional Education Competencies)
